  • FILE - In this Nov. 21, 2015 file photo, fans queue to enter Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, Spain for the first clasico of the season between Real Madrid and Barcelona. The rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona is heating up before a match in which Madrid isn’t even playing. Barcelona will face Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final in May, but the discussion in Spain is about whether Real Madrid will allow the game to be played at its Santiago Bernabeu Stadium or force officials to choose a different venue. Most Real Madrid fans wouldn’t want to see Barcelona winning a title at their stadium again. It happened in 1997, when Barcelona won the Copa del Rey title over Real Betis. Barcelona supporters filled the Bernabeu wearing their team’s colors, and players lifted the trophy with the club’s hymn being played loudly through the stadium’s speakers.
