This time will be more interesting than the last. Preview of the next El Clasico
Latest results and standings
“Barcelona” is confidently moving along the championship path – and this fact simply needs to be recognized. It has a few minor misfires, but overall its results seem nearly flawless. The Catalans do not break their opponents with a devastating score, but this is not necessary, because they often take the necessary three points with a score of 1:0.
Four of the last five victories ended in minimal victories and only Cadiz managed to win a little bigger – 2:0. Interestingly, the same heroes became the architects of the last two victorious goals – Sergio Busquets (assist) and Rafinha (goal).
Whatever chances Barcelona throws at Real Madrid, Real Madrid do not exploit them at all. The “creamy” draw with Atletico (1:1) can still be explained in some way (although they almost lost in the majority), but the next mistake with Betis (0:0) once again raised a lot of questions .
Before the direct clash, Real Madrid are nine points behind the leading Catalans. Even if he wins and closes the gap to six points, it won’t improve the situation much, as Barcelona have dropped points only four times in 25 rounds.
In many ways, Barça’s minimal victories are associated with significantly reduced attacking potential. Pedri and Robert Lewandowski were in the infirmary, but, fortunately, they have to recover for the match against an opponent of principle. Discounted the disqualification also Ronald Araujo, who will take place in the center of defense.
And Real Madrid will not be left without the main strike force either. Karim Benzema has recovered from his injury and will certainly start against Barça, who he has scored in two of his last three games.
But David Alaba will not have time to recover. At the moment he is being replaced by Nacho, who at times seems like an incredibly useful and suitable defender, but his potential is still very limited, especially in the offensive part of the pitch.
