Madrid:

Real Madrid will likely abandon its defensive strategy and go on the attack against Barcelona in the second leg of the Copa del Rey quarterfinals on Wednesday.

Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has come under fire for his choice of tactics following last week's 2-1 loss to Barcelona, with the Portuguese coach repeatedly jeered during a 4-1 league win over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

But that victory displayed Madrid's potent attack, which leads Barcelona by five points in the Spanish league after scoring 67 goals from 19 games to complete the first half of the season.

Also, third-tier club Mirandes hosts Espanyol trailing 3-2, while Valencia and Athletic Bilbao hold comfortable leads going into their return legs.
