The Real Madrid arrives to the Classical in an abysmal moment anímico and of form, probably the worst of the present season. The whites are a manojo of doubts right now and this Sunday play practically the season after falling against the Manchester City in the gone of the eighth of Champions League. The merengues are with a foot out of Europe and, if they also lose against the Barça, will remain to five points and with very few options to raise LaLiga.

The FC Barcelona, by his part, is much better planted to happen to the chambers of League of Champions after the 1-1 of Naples and in League is leader, with two points of advantage regarding the madridistas. In the worst of the cases, the blaugrana would remain only a point underneath of the whites if they lost in this Classical, by what the pressure in Can Barça is a lot lower.

Precisely with this pressure have to play the ones of Quique Setién, since the normal is that the Madrid go out revolutionised to try to recover the faith of his fans. The Barcelona have to calm the party in the first minutes and play with the anxiety of the ones of Zinedine Zidane, that to measure that advance the meeting will be more nervous and will commit more errors. This mental weakness will have to take advantage of it the barcelonistas to try exasperate to his rival.

In addition to the factor anímico and mental, the whites neither arrive in his best moment futbolísticamente speaking. In attack is evident that the ones of 'Zizou' have an alarming problem with the goal. Karim Benzema is beside Luka Jovic the only goleador of the staff, but the Serbian hardly explains for his technician, by what the French is alone. The '9' is not in shape and in this 2020 solo carries two targets, something that is prejudicing a lot to his team, since anybody has taken his witness.

Knowing that the Madrid goes to have problems to mark with almost total security, the Barcelona will have to centre in the problems that can have the merengues backwards. Ferland Mendy Is a wall and the one who go in by this band in the team culé goes to have a bone in front. In this sense, seems that only Leo Messi will be able to desequilibrar and break to the French, that up to now has been inexpugnable and has been able to with all the extremes that have him encarado.

The Barça has to take advantage of of Carvajal

Sergio Bouquets, instead, is more absent-minded of the usual and Griezmann and Leo have to take advantage of of his disconnections. But, still with the irregularity of the sevillano, the right band madridista has to be the point where more incidan the blaugrana. Dani Carvajal Is a coladero from does time and is of long the feeblest point of this Real Madrid. The one of Leganés seems a shadow of what was does some years and, in occasions, becomes even a ballast for his mates.

Against the City, for example, went out of his place without reason to go to presionar and Kevin of Bruyne coló by here and put it for the 1-1 of Gabriel Jesus. Besides, it completed his abysmal performance giving him a penalti to Sterling, that only had to encarar and do an autopase to seat to the carrilero. Ansu Fati, Griezmann or Messi go to have to show more than ever by this side that already took advantage of Pep Guardiola the Tuesday and has to take advantage of Setién this Sunday.

Carlos Henrique Casemiro came being one of the safest players with and without ball in the Madrid, but against the 'cityzens' lost several very dangerous balloons that could finish in goal. One of his losses, in fact, meant the expulsion of Sergio Bouquets. Frenkie Of Jong, Arthur Melo, Arturo Vidal or any one of the midfield players that play in the Barça could tighten him in the pressure in search of some error.

In definite, in spite of the bad moment by which happen, in a lot of facets the whites keep on being solid, but in others have lost security and precision. The group barcelonista has to take advantage of of these weaknesses to hurt and carry the three points of Santiago Bernabéu. The City of Guardiola him asestó to the Madrid a good hit the Tuesday and the Barça has to give him the estocada definite this Sunday.
