Barcelona Vs Real Madrid Match Preview
Real Madrid: LLLDL
Barcelona are topping the league table with 5 wins and 3 draws, bagging 18 points so far in 9 games. Real Madrid are slipped to 7th spot after last La Liga defeat at home against Levante.
Since 2007, this will be the first El Clasico without Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Being a Juventus player, Cristiano Ronaldo will be not available for the La Liga game. However, Messi injured himself badly during a 4-2 win over Sevilla. However, Stoichkov made a shocking claim that
“Knowing the winning character he has, his desire to play and his self-esteem, I still think that even injured can play. I still think he wants to play against Madrid.”
Real Madrid finally ended their longest goal drought when Marcelo found the back of the net in the 72nd minute of second half. Lopetegui did his best to put on a brave face after the loss. Asked if he feared the sack he said
“Right now that is the last thing on my mind. I just want to lift the players for the next game.”
Barca manager Ernesto Valverde talked about how tough Real Madrid would be in the upcoming game despite their recent struggles. He said
“Madrid can be even more dangerous. They will come out here to face us and although they come in crisis will want to demonstrate their strength, which they have because they have great players. We must forget about today. I do not trust these situations.”
After having a great game against Inter Milan, Rafinha is becoming the favorite to start against Real Madrid in the absence of Lionel Messi. He’s not amazingly talented in one particular area but does many things right, and generally, seems to understand Valverde’s system well.
Barcelona Vs Real Madrid Predictions
It will be not a shocking result if Barcelona claims a win at their home ground despite Messi’s absence. Barcelona are too good in the domestic league. A 4-2 win over Sevilla who won against Real Madrid shows Barca have the edge over Los Blancos.

Barcelona: Marc-Andre ter Stegen; Samuel Umtiti, Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba, Thomas Vermaelen; Arthur Melo, Sergi Roberto, Ivan Rakitic, Philippe Coutinho; Ousmane Dembele, Luis Suarez.
Real Madrid: Thibaut Courtois; Marcelo, Nacho Fernandez, Sergio Ramos, Dani Carvajal; Casemiro, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos; Isco, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale.
