MOST COMMENTED

[OFF THE POST] Iker the Octopus, Spain's answer to Paul the Octopus, picked Real Madrid over Barcelona in Wednesday's Copa del Rey final.

The 35-pound octopus, named after Real Madrid goalieIker Casillas, correctly predicted a tie in Saturday's La Liga match, the first of four matches between the teams, beating out his smaller rival, Iniesta the Octopus, who had predicted a Real Madrid win.

The first battle of the mollusks took place at the SeaLife Aquarium in Benalmadena, located in southern Spain.

Iker refused to eat the sardines from either of the two tubes covered with the teams' logos, signaling a draw, while Iniesta, named after Barca star Andres Iniesta, gobbled the sardine in the Real Madrid tube.
