Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi was being built up as one of the greatest showdowns in Spanish soccer. Unfortunately, only one of those phenomenal scorers will be on the pitch. It was revealed on Tuesday that Ronaldo will not play in the Copa del Rey final. Real manager Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the star player missing the final: "Cristiano did not rest because there was no need [...] There was no situation we saw that suggested he was tired and if he had been tired he would not have played. He has a problem that many players have at this stage of the season. We protect Cristiano in the same way we try to protect all the players as much as possible. It could be a risk playing him and we are not going to take that risk as there are very important games still to come." So this should now be a match Barca is primed to take, right? Not quite. Real Madrid still has plenty of talent to compete against Barcelona and will surely make this both a competitive match and a hotly contested one. Before things get underway Wednesday, here's a look at the full match information, preview and prediction for the Copa del Rey final. I think it will be a great match with all results possbible to come. azisakis Wed, 16 Apr 2014 09:27:49 EDT Soccer http://www.bangthebook.com/picks/t/151820 [Soccer] Betwin724tip soccer tips with great accuracy! http://www.bangthebook.com/picks/t/151319 betwin724tip Fri, 11 Apr 2014 12:01:16 EDT Soccer http://www.bangthebook.com/picks/t/151319
