Real Madrid lock horns with arch rivals Barcelona in this highly exciting El Clasico match. What makes this match even more mouthwatering and spicy is that, this could possibly be Lionel Messi’s last El Classico. While the Catalan Giants are at the second position in the La Liga table, Real Madrid are placed third with a point difference of just 2 points.
Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane will be missing out on this game. While Varane has tested positive for COVID-19 virus, Ramos has a muscle injury in his left leg.
Neto, Ansu Fati and Philippe Coutinho will be unavailable for this game due to their respective injuries.
Karim Benzema has been in superlative form in the past few matches and this will be a huge positive for Real Madrid. He has 6 assists and has scored 24 goals. Madrid are coming on the back off a 3-1 UEFA Champions league victory over Liverpool, and will be very positive and confident. Vinicius Junior scored 2 goals and was the chief architect of the victory.
Barcelona will have to bring out their A game in order to tackle the dominance of Real Madrid’s strikers and midfielders. A loss in this game would push the Catalan Giants to the third position in the table and thus they will be on their toes. Frenchman Ousmane Dembele’s form will be very important for Barca as he has scored twice in the last 2 games. Frenkie De Jong will be vital cog in the mid-field department of Barcelona.
