Real Madrid V Barcelona. Real Madrid play Barcelona in the latest edition of the El Clasico on Saturday night.
Both Real Madrid and Barcelona will be looking to snatch the title from Atletico Madrid who are in trouble at the moment. Atleti were knocked out of the Champions League by Chelsea and lost last weekend to Sevilla in La Liga. That defeat made second-placed Barcelona reduce the gap to one point as they won at home to Valladolid. The Catalans also have a game in hand meaning they will win La Liga if they win all the remaining matches including the El Clasico. Barca were far from their best when they beat Real Valladolid on Monday courtesy of a stunning volley by Ousmane Dembele at stoppage time. This was Ronald Koeman’s sixth straight win in La Liga he will surely hope his team makes it seven wins when they play Real Madrid.
Real Madrid on the other hand sit third on the La Liga table just two points behind Barcelona.If Madrid win the El Clasico they will go top of the table until Atletico Madrid play their match. Zinedine Zidane’s men will look to make it a double-win in a season against Barcelona by winning this clash. Real beat Barca 3-1 in Camp Nou in the reverse fixture in what was Real’s first win in four attempts at Camp Nou.
Barca meanwhile, have won three of four matches at the Bernabeu. Zidane’s men will however go into the El Clasico with full confidence after beating Liverpool in the champions league first leg which saw Vinicius Junior produce a brilliant performance. The El Clasico is expected to be an interesting match as experts have argued that the winner here will lift the La Liga title.
