“Barcelona” to match with “Real” is not suitable in such a bad mood. The team of Ernesto Valverde successfully overcame a series of setbacks, defeating Seville (4: 2) in the Example last weekend, and on Wednesday winning the Inter Champions League (2: 0). Both in the domestic championship and in the Champions League, the Catalans are leaders.
However, the “blue garnet” in this match will be missing Lionel Messi. What role he plays in the team, you don’t even have to say. Together with Leo in the hospital are Thomas Vermaelen and Samuel Yumtiti.
However, the problems of “Barca” can not be compared with the problems of “Real”. “Creamy” are in bad shape, winning only one of the six previous matches. Yes, and with the score (2: 1) in the Czech “Victoria”, which the royal club would not even have noticed before. This series of the Lopetegi team began with a crushing fiasco from Sevilla.
