Iker the octopus predicts Real Madrid to reach Champions League final
An octopus named Iker, which correctly predicted the result of the last two clasicos between Real Madrid and Barcelona, has foreseen Real will reach the Champions League final.
Iker predicted a Real victory over Barca by choosing to eat a sardine from a glass cylinder decorated with the club's badge at an aquarium in Benalmadena.
The octupus, named after Real keeper Iker Casillas, has already predicted Real's 1-1 draw against Barcelona in Primera Liga on April 16 and the club's 1-0 win over the Catalan club in the Copa del Rey final four days later.
During the World Cup in South Africa last year, Paul, an octopus in the German town of Oberhausen, correctly predicted all the results involving the German team.
