Today Barcelona host long time La Liga rivals Real Madrid in the most interesting game not only in Spain but in the whole world. It could not be another way after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are playing in this game.
The home team are 2nd place on the log but 6 points behind the visitors who have been playing really fueled up since the arrival of their new manager, Zidanne.
Barcelona needs to get all 3 points from this game otherwise they will fall further behind in the standings and will come into this game again without Iniesta but all other key players are available.
The last 10 games between Barca and Real Madrid at “Camp Nou” finished with more than 3 goals.
Barcelona’s strong defense has managed to keep a clean sheet in their last 3 home games in the League, and their front line for this usually entertaining encounter will consist of one of the world’s deadliest trio; Messi, Neymar, and Suarez.
Real Madrid will be without Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos, Rafael Varane and Alvaro Morata, and the fans have to deal with the worst news of the year which is that the club’s record most expensive signing, Gareth Bale. will be out of play until April.
The last time Real Madrid lost a game in the Primera Division was 25 games ago against Atletico Madrid on 27-th February, and have had a good scoring run of late.
The last 7 matches between these two sides finished with more than 3 goals, with both teams scoring. It’s very likely that this game will go the same way.
