On March 1, FC Barcelona will travel to Santiago Bernabéu to face Real Madrid. Before the Classic, however, the Catalans have a clear purpose
The Sunday day 1 March, will play a party that can be key for the development of LaLiga Santander: the Classical dentre the FC Barcelona and the Real Madrid that will contest in Santiago Bernabéu. Barcelona and whites split like favourites to carry the domestic championship and, thus, the result of the duel between both can be determinant.
For this, remains less than a month. Relatively little in time but still very far to level of the work that the team of Quique Setién has to do before measuring to the eternal rival. Since the Cantabrian technician is to the control, the team has gone of less to more and expects that it follow improving his game and his results during the next weeks in seen to the Classical.
Before the exciting crash in Chamartín, the culés will have at stake nine points, delivered in three parties that will have to win if they want to depend on if same for recuperr the leadership in the direct duel. The Barça lost in Mestalla to yield the first square and can not allow more tropiezos if it wants to arrive to the Classical with full powers to snatch the first square.
This week, the FC Barcelona will visit to the Real Betis in Benito Villamarín. The following week, the culés will receive to the Getafe in the Camp Nou and, the another, will measure to the Eibar also in the coliseo Barcelona. Three hard rivals, but that already were defeated by the Barcelona in the first turn. It expects that they repeat the same results for no despegarse of a Real Madrid that is showing very reliable.
It is necessary to take into account that the culés still will have to play a fourth party before the Classical: the gone of the eighth of final of the Champions League against the Naples in Saint Paolo. The Barça will have a day of rest more than the Real Madrid to face the Classical, since the merengues will measure to the City in the Bernabéu a day afterwards.
The Barça has to change the dynamics
In the first Classical of the season, played in December in the Camp Nou, the FC Barcelona did not lose against the Real Madrid, but went out very deteriorated by the abysmal image offered in front of the group madridista. The ones of Zinedine Zidane dominated to pleasure in front of the ones of Ernesto Valverde, something that Quique Setién will have to change to have options to win in terrain madridista.
