FC Barcelona receives Real Madrid this Sunday in what will be the fourth Clásico of the season in a match that will be a full-fledged League 'final' for the whites. If Barça win or even tie, LaLiga will be almost won, so the meringues play it. These are going to be the great 1vs1 of this League Classic

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The Classical always is a special party, but the one of this Sunday has a flavour to final of League that does the even more attractive party. The Real Madrid visits to a FC Barcelona that has nine points more and that it could sentence the championship in the Camp Nou in front of his people. A victory or even a local tie could leave LaLiga sight for sentence, by what for the whites is an all or at all and for the culés is the opportunity of 'tie' the title a lot before the thought.

Besides, on the contrary of the meeting of gone of the semifinals of Glass of the King of does more than two weeks, in this crash will be the majority of 'heavy weights' of the Barça. Robert Lewandowski returned the past week and will arrive 'filmed' and Christensen also will arrive 'to tope'. Unfortunately, Pedri, that seemed that it went to arrive just, at the end has not had good feelings in the training and could not being. The one of the Canarian would be a fundamental turn for the team, the same that the one of an Ousmane Dembélé, that always has been descartado and that even seems that it will be of drop two weeks more than the planned.

In spite of the two absences in the FC Barcelona, confirming that in the Madrid seems that neither there will be important drops, further of the one of David Praises, lesionado from does weeks, will be a clash of height between both groups. The individual duels that go to live on the field go to be more than 'spicy' and in 'FCBN' have analysed the most stood out.

Ter Stegen vs Courtois

East goes to be one of the big clashes of the party, since for the time being both are probably the two better goalkeepers of the world. Marc-André ter Stegen seems to be right now by in front and is being the 'saviour' of the Barcelona whenever the team needs him. Thibaut Courtois also is it of the Madrid, although in Anfield does some weeks committed a very grave error that caused one of the two so many of the Liverpool. The germano is not having failures and this gives him advantage for this 'final'.

Lewandowski vs Benzema

The duel of 'killers' goes to be interesantísimo, since any of the two arrives in a good moment and both will want to claim in a crash of so much 'height'. The Pole adds 15 so many in this League in 21 meetings, by the 11 in 15 of the French, that has lost a lot of parties by physical problems. In this 2023 specifically, Lewy only adds 2 targets in 6 duels suspender belts, having stray three by sanction and one by injury. By his part, the Frenchman carries 4 in 7, having been in three lesionado. But further of the figures, the reality futbolística of both is that they are not surrendering to the level that expects and this Sunday have to give a hit on of the table.

Araújo vs Vinicius

Surely beside the 1v1 of Karim Benzema and Robert Lewandowski, the one of the charrúa and the one of the Brazilian will go back to be the big duel of the Classical. Xavi has used in all the Madrid-Barça to Ronald Araújo in the right side like antidote against Vinicius Jr, and there is not doubt that it will go back to do it once again. The defence land has braked and even has it to him 'eaten' in the majority of meetings in which they have coincided in band and expects that it go back to do it. The Brazilian arrives with confidence after marking in front of the Espanyol and assist in the 1-0 against the Liverpool, and will be a clash in which they will jump 'sparks'.

Gavi vs Camavinga

Eduardo Camavinga was to title against the Liverpool in the mediocentro and completed a fantastic performance, but still like this could be acting against the Barcelona to give entrance to Aurélien Tchouaméni, acting in Champions. However, if it repeated the ex of the Rennes of start, could find against Gavi in a duel that could be brutal between the two more intense players, young and dynamic of his teams. The sevillano goes to be very important in the pressure, in defence and also with balloon between lines, especially if at the end it is not Pedri. Here 'it would bump' a lot with Camavinga in a one against one that could be lovely to see.

Busquets vs Kroos

Without Pedri, Sergio Busquets has to be the lighthouse of the Barça with balloon and the team has to achieve involve him so that it seats important. But 'Busi' will have in in front of the big 'brain' of the picture merengue, that will not be another that Toni Kroos. The German has the same influence that the one of Badia when it feels comfortable, as it showed against the Liverpool, and here could decide good part of the Classical. Although in the football there is not at all writing, the group that attain to give him more eases to dominate to one of these two stars will have a lot of more options to carry the triumph.

Raphinha vs Nacho

Raphinha Has given the step forward that asked him does some months and has turned into the big offensive reference of the FC Barcelona these last weeks. It carries two days followed marking in League and sum 7 goals and 5 assistances in what it goes of 2023, being the maximum second goleador of the team and the maximum assistant. In the Classical will see the faces with Nacho Fernández with almost total security. The Spanish has gone back to take advantage of the drops in defence to do a gap where do lacking and is surrendering of excellent form of head office or in any one of the two sides. Against the Liverpool went out in the left lane and braked very well to Salah, but this Sunday Raphinha will have to confirm his big state of form doing that the Madrilenian suffer.

Of Jong vs Modric

The rivalry, always sportive, between these two 'cracks' began in the eliminatory between Ajax and Madrid of Champions in which they imposed the Dutch. Frenkie 'Went out' and dominated in front of Luka Modric, and since each clash between both retrotrae irremediablemente to this. The '21' of the Barça arrives in better form that the Balkan and is surely in his best moment since it arrived to the Camp Nou. The '10' merengue, by his part, played well in Champions and wants to show that it still has 'legs' and quality to be dominant in 'final' as the one of this Classical.

Balde vs Valverde

Alejandro Balde and Fede Valverde are two of the greater 'beasts' physical of LaLiga and surely of Europe. If Ancelotti does not change his approach in parties 'big', something that rare time occurs, this Sunday one and another will see the faces in the same side. The charrúa will play of right extreme in the 4-3-3 white and the Spanish goes to be the carrilero title of the team barcelonista. Although the one of Montevideo is not an attacker to the use, will fall a lot to the half and no desequilibrará with balloon, can hurt to the back of Balde, that will go up a lot as of habit. Luckily, the canterano culé is one 'bullet' and will receive helps, by what expects a very interesting duel between both.
