Barcelona and Real Madrid took care of business in the first legs of their respective Copa del Rey semifinal ties, both coming away with victories. If they can do the same on Wednesday, the soccer world will be guaranteed at least a third Clasico this season.
Barcelona is in the driver's seat after securing a 5-0 first-leg win over Almeria. Real Madrid was only able to muster a 1-0 victory at Sevilla and will look to hold on at home to advance to the final.
Outside of Spain there's plenty of action, too, including nearly a full complement of games in Serie A and six games in the Premier League including matches in which Americans Stuart Holden, Clint Dempsey and Jermaine Jones are starting. According to West Ham's team site, Jonathan Spector picked up a minor hamstring injury in training and is out for the match against Blackpool. In Scotland, Maurice Edu will look to build off the goal he scored over the weekend, as Rangers hosts Hearts of Midlothian in a key Scottish Premier League battle.
