Barcelona and Real Madrid lock horns tonight at the Camp Nou in the second leg of the semifinal of the Kings Cup.

With the tie evenly balanced at 1-1 from the first leg in Madrid, and the visitors 15 points behind their rivals in the League, Jose Mourinho and his team will want to advance if they are to deliver any silverware this season.

There are questions surrounding the recent form of the Catalan giants following their 2-0 loss to AC Milan in the Champions League and having to come from a goal down to defeat Seville 2-1 on the weekend. They have also conceded goals in their last 11 matches.

Madrid also had to come back to win on Saturday, rallying for a 2-1 victory over Deportivo La Coruna. Kaka scored his first goal of the season.

After beating Sevilla 2-1 at home in the first leg, Atletico will hope striker Radamel Falcao continues on his prolific scoring run on Wednesday.
