Barcelona and Real Madrid face off in El Clasico at Nou Camp in what many believe to be a dead rubber as Barcelona lead Real by 10 points in the league. Real on the other hand will want to win this game to salvage some pride as well as gain some momentum going into the Champions League.
Real Madrid have to stop Barcelona’s three pronged attack at any cost if they want to win this game. Messi, Suarez and Neymar are all in outstanding form and are devastatingly good on the counter. Messi and Suarez have already scored more than 50 goals between them season where as Real’s attack of Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo have struggled at times. The BBC as they are called will need to sort their differences out and play to their potential so that they disrupt’s Barcelona’s tempo. Their pressing will be key so that Barcelona can’t play out the ball from the back as they usually do.
