This Wednesday will contest the last Classical of the season between the FC Barcelona and the Real Madrid. Prognosis ensured of partidazo in the Spotify Camp Nou for the party of turn of the semifinals of the Glass of Rey, with minimum advantage for the Barcelona team after the gone in the capital of Spain, but more than sufficient so that the whites arrive with a very complicated task.

The team of Carlo Ancelotti, that left clear that they could have some surprises in his eleven headline, will have to win obligatoriamente the party to be able to be in the final, and by two or more goals of difference if it wants to do it in the 90 minutes. To this precisely refers the favouritism culé, that in the last two meetings in front of the Madrid only received a goal, and went in own door.

The bad news for the Barça and for Xavi, is that the team will go back to have several important drops, something that already sucedió in the meeting of gone in Santiago Bernabéu. Already regarding the last Classical of does some two weeks, in which the Catalan picture won 2-1 and left LaLiga sight for sentence, two players ausentarán by injury. It treats of Frenkie of Jong and of Andreas Christensen, that have not arrived to time to the crash.

So much the Dutch like the Danish are being titularísimos for the trainer egarense, by what the blaugrana go them to throw in fault. Neither they will be Ousmane Dembélé and Pedri, that carry already a lot of more time 'KO' and that did not play against the Madrid neither in League, neither in the gone of Glass. However, the technical body will be able to have of an eleven headline of guarantees.

So much the advantage to be local like the history put to the Barcelona team like the favourite maximum to be in the final of the tournament of His Majesty. And it is that from it does more than half century, the Barça does not know what means to fall deleted in an eliminatory of the Glass of the King after having won the first party. To know the most direct antecedent is precise to trace back until the season 1961/62, where the culés also won by the minimum to the Madrid in the first meeting.

Another important factor that puts to the Catalan entity with advantage is that Xavi has 'portrayed' to Ancelotti in four of the six Classical in which they have seen the faces and goes to try arrive to the fifth. The one of Terrassa won the one of League of the past course, fell in the one of Supercopa and this season has won in the ones of Supercopa, the turn of League and the gone of Glass, losing only in the one of the gone of the domestic championship.

Precisely the míster of the Barça went through the room of press and ensured that although it will be forced to do changes "the idea is the same, have the ball". "We do not vary at all if we play with a half in the band. The tie classifies us for the final but will not change us at all. This of favourite or are not feelings. To two parties is very difficult to win to the Madrid. It does time that do not lose an eliminatory, therefore I said that they were favourite. The pressure is more his that ours ", affirmed.

Finally, it spoke of the aims of the team and the big evolution during the campaign. "It was convinced from the beginning. Like this I said it in the Gamper, that the aim was to win titles. I know that I put me pressure on, but this is the Barça. Have one for the moment and now want the League and the Glass. It is necessary to remember where were the past year and as we are now. It sees it any one except want us badly", concluded the egarense.
