Nou Camp, Wednesday, 9pm, live Sky Sports 2

BARCELONA got the better of Jose Mourinho yet again last week and should complete the job on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola's men lead 1-0 from the Spanish Cup quarter-final first leg and I can't see any way back for their rivals.

The defeat and manner of it earned Mourinho boos from the Bernabeu faithful at the weekend and there were reports of a bust-up between the Portuguese boss and defender Sergei Ramos.

With everything that's going on it's easy to forget Real enjoy a five-point lead at the top of La Liga but it's worth noting Mourinho has only posted one  in victory in 13 games against Barcelona – last season's Spanish Cup Final.

I'm on the home side to increase their lead and they are 7-10 with William Hill to win in 90 minutes.

Barcelona are just 1-10 with bet365 while Mourinho’s men are 9-2 at Betfred to snatch a win and 10-3 at Paddy Power to play out a draw.

After another fantastic display and hat-trick by Lionel Messi att he weekend he's got to worth a look at 7-2 with Betfred to score first. To score at any time the Argentine is 4-5 at Betfred.

He often receives good back-up from Cesc Fabregas, a great finisher, and the ex-Gunner is 15-8 with 888sport to net at any time.

Cristiano Ronaldo bagged the opener last week and hit two more at the weekend to stay just ahead of Messi in the scoring stakes. He is 11-2 at Betfred to break the deadlock.

Hopefully there will be plenty of goals and a bit more excitement than the second leg. There should be over 2.5 but it's very short so go over 3.5 at 6-4 with Stan James and William Hill.

    After all the bad blood between the players last week I fancied a red card in tonights match. I will have to check out the referee and price first though. Probably not much value but I fancy Barca to win and Real to lose their discipline.
