Read our preview — el Clasico Preview: Real Madrid vs Barcelona could be Spanish title decider.
The Santiago Bernabeu stadium will play host to the biggest contest in Spanish football as Real and Barca look horns. And there’s much more than pride at stake in this one, with Barcelona in desperate need of a victory to haul themselves back into the title race.
But that’s easier said than done, with Los Blancos looking imperious under Carlo Ancelotti. Since the turn of the year this Madrid side have fallen into an excellent winning groove, with the Italian boss fashioning a system to include Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Angel Di Maria, Luka Modric and Xabi Alonso. In the season’s earlier meeting with Barca, Ancelotti tinkered with his system and Madrid failed to get out of first gear. But in front of the Madridistas, they’ll be expected to go for the jugular and dump Barcelona out of the title race.
But La Blaugrana will have other ideas. They whacked Osasuna 7-0 last weekend with Lionel Messi scoring a treble, and the diminutive Argentine looks to getting back to his best on the brink of the season defining clash with Madrid. Tata Martino’s side currently trail the league leaders by four points and Atletico Madrid by a point.
With nine games left after this weekend, it would be very difficult for Barca to re-establish themselves in the title race if they were to lose to Real Madrid, surrender a seven point deficit and an find themselves with an inferior head-to-head record. A win for Real would put them well on their way to yet another league title and one step closer to a much coveted trebl of La Liga, Copa Del Rey and Champions League crowns.
