In what it goes of century, never before the Real Madrid​ there was state so favourite to win a 'Classical'. The irregularities that arropan to the FC Barcelona have planted him like a team 'regulate', so so it finds in the sixth position in LaLiga, square that offers the contingent to the Conference League, the new competition of the UEFA. On the other hand, the White House has kept in the peak of the general table and with life still in the Champions League. They are realities totally different, by the moment.

If the ones of Xavi Hernández want to have some opportunity to seal his pass to the final of the Supercopa of Spain, have to detain at all costs to Vinicius Júnior. The Brazilian at last has exploded, and is showing why 'Transfermarkt' values him with a cost of 100 million euros. Already it adds 14 goals and nine assistances in 26 commitments in this season, what has turned him into one of the most important players of Europe with 2.136 minutes in all the competitions.

Dani Alves, of 38 years, seem to be, of entrance, the manager to brake to his compatriot. With a difference of 17 years, the experience will be the only factor in favour that will have the defender to complete the feat. However, the first feelings that has left have been good, and his tactical leadership can influence in the form in as the four of the bottom encaren the commitment. Also Ronald Araújo will measure in front of the 'canarinho'. The Uruguayan will be able to exert finally of central defender, and in more than an occasion will have to define in a 'one against one' in front of the white forward.

Carlo Ancelotti knows that has all the ones to win, but also recognises that each party is different, and more in a 'Classical' to only party, where does not matter the present of any of the two teams. The time seems to detain in this type of commitments, and Xavi already has lived in own meat what is to win, lose and trace back in front of the eternal rival. The 'harp' culé has to go out in the King Fahd Stadium if they want to aspire to the title, but first... First they have to stop to Vinicus.

An eleven 'renewed'

The egarense has recovered to several pieces for this second half of season, but has to be cautious with his movements. Ansu Fati, Ferran Torres and Pedri already have the "OK" of the infirmary culé and are available, but this does not mean that they do not have almost three months without playing. The three are allocated to mark the difference inside the terrain of game, and the chemistry between them is crucial. Besides, Araújo and Frenkie of Jong also travelled to Saudi Arabia and expect to play. This Wednesday will be the true 'proof of fire' for the technical body of the Barcelona bench.
