Barcelona vs. Real Madrid Preview
The reigning La Liga champions Barcelona has fallen six points behind Real Madrid in the league table. They are currently in bad form despite not losing in the last five games. The Catalan club lost in midweek to third-tier club Hercules in the Copa del Rey.
On the other hand, Real Madrid is on a 31-game unbeaten streak in all competitions. Zinedine Zidane has guided Los Blancos to their best unbeaten run since Carlo Ancelotti. Nevertheless, a win for Real will give them a nice grip at the top of the La Liga table.
“We’re not thinking about the consequences of the result against Barcelona, only about preparing well for the game. Whatever happens, it won’t be decisive. It’s a good match against a great opponent who will certainly make it difficult for us and that’s all there is to it,” Zidane told Kickoff.
The matchup on Saturday will be the 265th El Clasico in history across all competitions. It is the 173rd in the history of La Liga with Real Madrid ahead with 4 wins at 72-68.
