The FC Barcelona receives to the Real Madrid this Sunday in the Spotify Camp Nou with LaLiga at stake. The picture barcelonista arrives to this Classical chamber of the season with nine points of advantage regarding the whites, by which a victory would finish of 'kill' the championship. The merengues, by his part, can not fail if they want to 'litigate' by the title and not even the tie would cost them as it is everything.
The ones of Xavi Hernández arrive to the duel after going back to give a 'hit on of the table' in Bilbao with a victory of a lot of merit in front of the Athletic Club. The blaugrana showed to be a team that has learnt to suffer to take out meetings forward, and is likely that in this Classical have to go back to show this capacity of sacrifice to sentence LaLiga.
For this Classical with flavour to final, the Barça will have again the drops of Pedri and Ousmane Dembélé, that now 'litigate' to go back of face to the Barcelona-Madrid of the turn of semifinals of Glass of Rey. Luckily, the trainer culé recovered does a week so much to Christensen as to Robert Lewandowski, absent in the gone copera. Both will be headlines this Sunday in a XI already confirmed, with an unexpected apparition, the one of Sergi Roberto.
Alignments of the FC Barcelona-Real Madrid of LaLiga
- XI of the FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Araújo, Koundé, Christensen, Alejandro Balde; Sergio Busquets, Frenkie Of Jong, S. Roberto, Gavi; Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski.
- Bench of the FC Barcelona: Ansu Fati, Iñaki Crag, Marcos Alonso, Jordi Alba, Kessié, Eric García, Pablo Tower, Ferran Torres, Arnau Tenas and Alarcón.
- XI of the Real Madrid: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Rüdiger, Nacho; Camavinga, Kroos, Modric; Valverde, Benzema and Vinicius.
Xavi has surprised choosing to Roberto like fourth midfield player for this 'final', since it took for granted that the elected went to be Franck Kessié. The coast-marfileño played very well in the Classical of Glass, came going to more these last weeks and seemed that it was his moment. However, the technician trusts blindly in Sergi and considers that it is more appropriate to reinforce the midfield with the canterano and leave to the ex of the Milan for the second part.
In the Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti has gone back to trust the same that played against the Liverpool in the turn of eighth of Champions League. In defence, Nacho Fernández will be lateral left-handed again and will confront to Raphinha. On the other hand, Eduardo Camavinga keeps in the mediocentro, with Modric and Kroos of interiors and Tchouaméni in the bench again. Up, Rodrygo Goes again will split from the bank, with Fede Valverde of 'false' extreme right.
