Real Madrid waiting for revenge

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is looking forward to exacting revenge on Barcelona when both sides meet in the Copa del Rey final.
Mourinho's men were mauled mercilessly by their bitter rivals 5-0 in the league in November last year.
Now both Spanish giants will have the chance to
battle it out again after progressing from their respective semi-finals on Wednesday.
Madrid overcame Sevilla 2-0 to complete a 3-0 aggregate victory while Barcelona won 8-0 on aggregate after thumping Almeria 3-0.
Speaking post-match, Mourinho insists he is looking forward to only his second El Clasico but questioned the scheduling of the Copa dey Rey final.
"It is great to see two rivals meet in the final," Mourinho explained to Marcapost-mach. 
" We had our difficulties, and this has hurt us throughout January.
"We paid the price, but have receovered enough to progress to the final. It has all been worth it because we are now in the Copa final.
"April 20 is a little strange for the final. We will now focus on the Copa later in the season. It was important for us not to lose control of this evening's match, and the goals gave us peace of mind.
"We have had a good competition, which tested us with a Madrid derby," he added.
Madrid currently trail Barcelona by seven points in the La Liga standings.
