An octopus named Iker, which correctly predicted the result of the last two "classicos" between Real Madrid and Barcelona, has foreseen Real will reach the final of the Champions League.

Iker predicted Real would reach the final at London's Wembley arena on May 28 by choosing to eat a sardine from a glass cylinder decorated with the club's badge instead of one from a cylinder with Barcelona's on Tuesday at the Sea Life Aquarium here.

The 16-kilo octupus, named after Real keeper Iker Casillas, had predicted Real's 1-1 draw against Barcelona in La Liga on April 16 and the club's 1-0 win in the King's Cup final.
