A twist of the season? FC Barcelona receives Real Madrid, Sunday March 19 (21:00), on behalf of the 26th day of La Liga. The 186th Clasico in the league between the two rivals could extinguish the last hopes of suspense about the identity of the future Spanish champion, or revive them in the event of a successful merengue. Already far ahead, the Catalans are nine points ahead of the Madridese.
Eliminated from all European competitions, the blaugrana have the possibility of extending their lead to 12 points which would be an undeniable advantage in view of the title. Conversely, Real Madrid, still in the running for the Champions League after eliminating Liverpool, must absolutely take the three points to catch up with their rival. Especially since Carlo Ancelotti’s players have revenge to take, they are left behind two defeats against the Catalans, in the Super cup and in the cup.
