Iker the Octopus picks Madrid
Benalmadena - Iker the Octopus has picked Real Madrid to beat Barcelona on Wednesday in the Copa del Rey final.
The 16 kg Pacific Ocean octopus named after Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas correctly predicted a draw in the first of four matches between the teams in 18 days. Now, he's out to prove his first pick was no fluke.
Iker chose Madrid on Tuesday by snatching a sardine from the tube covered with team's logo.
Iker floated passively for 15 minutes without selecting a sardine from either team's tube on Friday, a day before Madrid rallied to a 1-1 draw in a Spanish league match.
The teams will also face each other in both legs of the Champions League semifinals.
