FC Barcelona and Real Madrid will see the faces in a new edition of the Classical that will contest in Santiago Bernabéu and that will put the leadership of LaLiga at stake
This Sunday to the 21:00 hours, Santiago Bernabéu will go back to be the epicentre of the world of the football when receiving a new Classical between the Real Madrid and the FC Barcelona. A duel that no pilla in his best moment to any of the two groups but that will have the leadership at stake. The whites, with more urgencies, reside to two points of the Barcelona in the table clasificatoria and need the victory to recover the leadership, whereas a victory of the Barcelona would put earth of by half with five points of advantage.
Both teams will close the one who possibly have been the most intense week of the season, since the Classical arrives in full hangover of the meetings of gone of the eighth of final of the Champions League. The Barça obtained a grey -but valuable- tie against the Naples in Saint Paolo, whereas the Real Madrid carried a tremendo fiasco with a hard defeat against the Manchester City in Santiago Bernabéu (1-2) in a bathroom of the English picture.
Said in other words Pep Guardiola undressed to the picture of Zinedine Zidane, destapó the box of Pandora and showed to Quique Setién and to his pupilos the formula to hurt to the Real Madrid. But accept it, the Barça neither has too much of what boast regarding the showed between week and will touch to improve to face up to a team that, remember, does few months gave a recital without prize in the Camp Nou.
The incógnitas of the eleven of Setién
In addition to Ousmane Dembélé and Luis Suárez, lesionados of long length, Setién will have the only drop of Sergi Roberto to measure to the Real Madrid. Gerard Hammered and Jordi Alba have recovered to time to play the Classical, although this last arrived just and could begin in the bench in profit of Junior Firpo. Nélson Semedo Will be fixed in the right side and Samuel Umtiti aims to couple of Hammered in the axis of the defence, without descartar of the all to Clément Lenglet.
In the centre of the field, Sergio Busquets and Frenkie of Jong will go back to pilot the room of machines, very possibly with Arthur like companion. The Brazilian has gone of less to more in the last weeks and the offered by Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal during this period does not seem sufficient to deny him to the goiano a titularity that begins to deserve.
In the forward sortea a place at the side of Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann for which Martin Braithwaite has bought a lot of tickets. The Danish played the partidillo of the training of this Friday with the peto of titularity and seems that it splits with advantage in front of Ansu Fati. The another alternative would be to reinforce the medullary with Arturo Vidal that it does not finish to convince in his last experiments like false '9' or pseudoextremo right.
The cheerful game and the weaknesses of the Real Madrid
Against the Naples, Quique Setién marked a 'Valverde' and bet in Saint Paolo by an eleven conservative that neither worked in defence neither convinced in attack. Maybe, the error of the Cantabrian resided in renouncing to his principles for treating of an eliminatory of Champions League without margin of error. It can even that it have learnt a lesson that will do him shake the complexes and rescue the 4-3-3 that so well worked him in previous weeks.
The FC Barcelona has to do gala of the fact to be the team more goleador of LaLiga by a lot of that in front have to the picture less goleado. The Real Madrid has weaknesses and has showed them in the last weeks, especially against a Manchester City that knew to minimise the intensity of the team of Zinedine Zidane and attack by where more hurt: the right band of a Carvajal that does not go through his best moment.
It is thus that the possibility to recover the 'trident' already was with Ansu Fati or with Braithwaite contributes upward. The bisauguineano would be a good resource to attack the right band madridista with a player with desborde and speed, whereas the Danish would contribute pressure, constant movements and the possibility of deslazar to Griezmann to the left band.
The ones of Zidane, touched
The Real Madrid arrives to the Classical after having crashed in the last three parties. First it went in Santiago Bernabéu against the Celtic of Vigo; later, the whites lost in the Ciutat of València against the Raise a party that cost the leadership suspender belt; finally, the already mentioned defeat against the Manchester City that left to the madridistas to the edge of the European elimination and with more urgencies that never of face to the Classical.
Zinedine Zidane will not be able to explain neither with the lesionados Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio neither with the absurdly sanctioned Rodrygo Goes. The French technician, questioned by his experiments against the City leaving to Toni Kroos in the bench, no will play it to him against the blaugranas: the German will recover the titularity and the team will try to recover this pressure that drowned to the Barça in the last Classical in the Camp Nou.
But, as Leo Messi remembered does some weeks in an interview for Mark, the Classical in the Bernabéu are more comfortable for the Barça that those that play in the coliseo Catalan. Word of 'D10S', that comes to mark him four goals to the Eibar in the last day liguera and that expects to lead to the team to assault the white sanctuary and, why no, the League.
