Even though defeating Barcelona in tomorrow’s game might be ‘too little too late’ for Real Madrid, it would still mean the world to them to beat their bitter rivals. Famously called as the ‘El Clasico’, the clash between Real Madrid and Barcelona is perhaps the most followed event in club football in the world. Going into the fixture, Real Madrid are 3rd in the table, while Barcelona are topping the table.

Match Details:

Competition – La Liga

Venue – Estadio Santiago Bernabeu

Date & Time – 3rd March | 01:15 AM IST

The Real Madrid vs Barcelona Playerzpot Match Preview

Real Madrid and Barcelona will go at each other for the second time in a matter of days. The two Spanish giants were involved in a Copa Del Rey second leg match where Barcelona won 3-0 to book their place in the final of the competition.

The Los Blancos were left frustrated in their loss as they looked to be the superior team over the entirety of the game. However, Barcelona took their chances to show their ruthless side and leave their rivals in shock. Understandably, Real Madrid must be itching to avenge their latest defeat and the game on the weekend gives them the perfect opportunity to do so.

Real Madrid have had a below par campaign in La Liga so far. The Los Blancos seemed to be sinking at one point and even had to sack their coach mid-season. Yet, they have done well under the interim coach Solari to steady themselves. An improved form in recent times has helped Real Madrid jump up the table.

The upcoming El Clasico might have little bearing on the title race, but the home team will be expected to win it to earn the fans bragging rights. Barcelona, on the other hand, will make sure that they do not fumble on their way to the finishing line – especially in front of eternal rivals Real Madrid.
