This Wednesday to the 20:00 hours -time peninsular Spanish- will go back to colisionar the two big of LaLiga Santander for a new edition of the Classical between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, the first of the season and the last of this year 2019. A party that will have the focus especially in the big offensive references of both teams.

Without place to doubts, in the present campaign, these references go back to have name and surnames. In the case of the FC Barcelona, Leo Messi will go back to be the big lighthouse in attack of the group of Ernesto Valverde, and will do it arriving to the party in a moment of excellent form and after having annotated 14 goals in the present campaign, 12 of them in LaLiga.

But in the Real Madrid also have in attack to a footballer that is especially fine and to the that did not shiver him the legs to the hour to assume the paper of leader of the team when Cristiano Ronaldo left to the Juventus of Turín: Karim Benzema. The French forward carries the same goals that the Argentinian star in LaLiga (12) and is put of full in the fight by the pichichi.

Two players out of series

We are in front of two footballers that contribute much more that goal to his teams. On Leo Messi little is necessary to say, is the total footballer, the player that does that the dreams do reality and a legend to which six Balloons of Gold remain short to define him. Lethal of face to door, solidario in the assistances and dominador of all the variants futbolísticas that can have, will be the Barcelona leader in the Classical.

But Karim Benzema does not remain short. His 12 goals consecrate him as 'killer' of the area, but it is necessary to mention that we are in front of an atypical forward, that during all his career has been considered more a playmaker that a matador. And it keeps on being it. The French is very dangerous when it associates and very intelligent in each one of his movements. Pure elegance that it will be necessary to tie in short in duel of the Camp Nou.

It is true that the Real Madrid is one of the favourite victims of Leo Messi, but Benzema is not precisely somebody that bring good memories to the barcelonismo. Besides, the injury of the Argentinian at the beginning of season does that the madridista hold him the pulse to the captain culé in the fight for being the maximum goleador of LaLiga, that promises to be more equalised that in the last seasons. Duel of titanes in the Camp Nou.
