Real Madrid Vs. Barcelona 2011, Copa Del Rey Final: Underway In Valencia at the Estadio Mestalla

Barcelona and Real Madrid are underway in Valencia in the final of the 2011 Copa del Rey. It's the second meeting out of four between the two rivals over an 18 day period, and with a trophy on the line, this one is sure to be a hotly contested and emotional match.

Lionel Messi is looking for his 50th goal of the season tonight.

The Mestalla is filled to capacity and the noise is deafening as the game kicks off!

Barcelona begins the match with possession, moving the ball around in the midfield...shocking I know. We've also made it past 20 second without a foul, something that happened in Saturday's meeting. A bit of a sloppy start, but Real Madrid break out first as Ronaldo draws the matches' first foul as Javier Mascherano takes him down near the corner flag.

Xabi Alonso's free kick goes well wide of the goal and doesn't threaten at all.
