Real Madrid will face Barcelona at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, in Madrid, at the 25th Round of Spanish LaLiga. Real Madrid against Barcelona is always the match with big interest especially during this season and LaLiga positions. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
This season, Real Madrid is still experiencing the moment of change of the game and tactics, since there is no clear leader in the team and they have to play team football. At the moment in the League, they stand at 3 positions with 2 points difference with Atl. Madrid and 9 points with Barcelona. Real lost 2 of last 5 LaLiga home matches and 3 in total. With effectiveness, they also have problems since at home they scored only 19 goals, however, conceded 7 in 12 matches. At this stage, especially after losing in the Copa Del Rey, they must be angry at themselves and their rivals. It is necessary to direct all forces to take revenge on Barcelona and win the game. Moreover, Real has not won against Barca since 2017 Supercopa de Espana.
Isco should return after injury and help the team to reach the goals. Nacho will miss next match due to indirect card suspension for one LaLiga matchday. All other main squad players are fit and ready to face Barcelona one more time.
Real Madrid scores on average 1.7 goals per game, pass with 87.9% accuracy and shoot 16.5 times per game. They like to play possessional football as they have 58.6% control of the game. Los Blancos already collected 45 yellow and 4 red cards.
Barcelona looks very confident this season as there were no changes in the club. This is very good because they know each other well and play their best football. The team is going to win La Liga this season, and apparently, no one can stop them. Barcelona this year shows the best attacking football in all leagues as they have already scored 65 goals. In away matches, this team looks very confident as they lost only once surprisingly against Leganes at the beginning of the season. Barca should strongly prepare for Lyon match at Camp Nou as they played 0:0 first match and it could cause some troubles.
L. Messi made double already as he scored 25 goals and made 11 assists, moreover, Suarez scored 16 goals. Barcelona has no changes after Copa Del Rey match against Real. All first eleven squad players are fit and ready to show the best football one more time.
Barcelona in LaLiga scores on average 2.6 goals per game, pass with 88.4% accuracy and shoots 15.4 times per match. Barcelona likes to control the game as they have 61.4% of possession. Moreover, Blaugrana collected 45 yellow and 2 red cards this season.
In last two seasons including 2018/19, these teams played 6 times. Barcelona won 3 times, only once Real Madrid was better and played 2 drawn matches. In the last match between teams a few days ago Barcelona won at Santiago Bernabéu in Copa del Rey. Most interesting that Real attacked more often and had more chances to score, however, Barcelona scored 3 goals out of 4 goal attempts. This realization is very impressing.
