Cristiano Ronaldo insists that Real Madrid have enough quality to beat Barcelona when Spain's big two collide in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday.

Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted that his side are confident of beating Barcelona in Wednesday's Copa del Rey semi-final first leg at the Bernabeu.

Ronaldo continued his fine recent form by scoring a hat-trick today in Madrid's 4-0 win over Getafe to reach 300 goals for the club.

Despite trailing Barca by 15 points in La Liga the Portuguese forward believes that home advantage can help Madrid stop Tito Vilanova's men.

He told AS: "We will be at home, in our stadium which is a good opportunity for us to take an advantage in the tie.

"It's a really important game, a difficult game. We will be up against one of the toughest teams in the world so it will be a great night.

"We are missing a few key player, players who are important to us but that should not be an excuse. We need to put in a good game because Barca are an amazing team."

Jose Mourinho's side will be without Iker Casillas in midweek as the goalkeeper continues a spell on the sidelines with a fractured hand.
