Real Madrid only have a one goal cushion as they head to Malaga, while Barcelona have their tie all but wrapped up.

Real Madrid went down by two goals early to Malaga in the first leg of their Copa Del Rey, Round of 16 tie at the Santiago Bernabeu, but recovered to win 3-2. They now head to Malaga on Tuesday, very much in control and favorites to advance in the tie. Their match is both the most high-profile matchup on Tuesday and in the entire round.

Valencia and Sevilla are also playing in an intriguing tie against each other, and will have the spotlight on Wednesday in the late game. Valencia won 1-0 at the Mestalla and will look to hold onto their lead away in Seville in the second leg. Thursday's biggest game features Barcelona against Osasuna, where the Blaugranas will likely field a B team. They beat Osasuna 4-0 in the first leg at Camp Nou.
