You guys are lucky, I have to watch it on Televisa Deportes Network, some lousy mexican sports chanell with the dullest and dumbest commentators.... According to them Mamadou Diarra is Lass, Ozeil is Di Maria, and they make mistakes and are so stupid and dull, nothing interesting at all... Sometimes I go on footytube, and listen to those learned English commentators, droping fun facts, stats, analisis, analogies, comments all match long, and I kick myself in the ass for having these dumb mexican's commenting on the matches i watch.. it used to be all argentinian's which are cool as hell too.. fu** I rather listen to it in arab with those commentators that yell all match than this sh*t..
I can see Mourinho going defensive trying to catch Barca on the counter attack, as was his plan against them with Inter in the Champions League semi final.
No doubt Mourinho is gonna do that.... He once said, "you can't play barcelona like equals", basically saying you have to counterattack them or something because you play them without fear and attack them you will get fu**ed....
Barcelona is mighty powerful right now, and Real Madrid's away results aren't that bright as they are at home.... All this gives me confidence that Barcelona should take the match with superiority........... Though another part of me tellss me I can't forget that Mourinho is a very intelligent manager, and arguably the best in the world, and none of his teams will go down easily...
In Nou Camp last years semifinal Pep's Barcelona beat Mourinho's Inter 1-0 .... Earlier that season, in the group stages of the champions league, Pep's Barcelona beat Mou's Inter 2-0 @ camp nou as well(it was a year ago on wednsday)....In San Siro, Inter and Barcelona tied 0-0 and in the semifinal we all know Inter won 3-1... 2 wins at home for Pep and Barca, 1 tied, and 1 home Victory for Mou and Inter....
Surely, this Madrid isn't at the level of Inter last season..
Can't leave out the fact, that the game will be a monday, so its more complicated for People to go vs it being on a sunday, in spite of this, I trust the Nou Camp will be a blue, red and yellow HELL and they will motivate their team like they do in big european nights matches. The Barca anthem will be heard in towns close to Barcelona, and the stadium will be on fire count on that.. This will be a super, super clasico...
Some cool video's to watch prior to the match:

Can't find a Manchester United 2 - Inter Milan 0 (Ferguson vs Mou) UCL round of 16, march 2009
Inspite of dominating home, away Madrid has struggled a little more:
in league their away results where..
Copa del Rey
It really caught my eye that they really are scary at home, and away they've only won by more than 1 goal differential in 2 occasions 1-3 vs Hercules, and 1-4 vs Malaga(first team to sack their manager), the rest have been ties or wins by 1 goal diference..
