Real Madrid are back to where they left their last season. Los Blancos are top of La Liga and also have made it to the round of 16 pretty easily. The team is looking stronger than ever with Benzema also returning from injury. It is fair to say that they had an easy UCL group as compared to other teams. But apart from that, they are firing in La Liga with Vinicius, Rodrygo, and Valverde leading from the front. Barcelona are the only team who have scored more than Los Blancos. The Blaugranas are one of the best teams in La Liga currently sitting at the 2nd spot.
Apart from all this action on the pitch, Real Madrid and Barcelona had successful transfer windows in their aspects. Casemiro left for Manchester United but Ancelotti has new signing Tchaoumeni to praise. Barcelona signed Lewandowski who is delivering for them as expected. Tony Rudiger signed as a free agent for Los Blancos and has settled in well. Ancelotti and Xavi both are adamant that the team’s quality must be constantly improved. With the world cup on the horizon, players will feel tired eventually and injuries will happen.
Reports say that Barcelona and Real Madrid are targeting players in the January window. While Real Madrid’s season has pretty much been the perfect one, it cannot be said the same about Barcelona. The Blaugranas have crashed out of the UCL and a defeat to Real Madrid in the Clasico has left them 3 points behind. The Catalans have failed to win any of their games against the big sides this season. This includes the defeats against Inter Milan and Bayern Munich. This has made the club consider players to sign in the January window.
Vitor Roque breaks silence on dream club
Barcelona have pursued Brazilian striker Vitor Roque for a long time. The Catalans are looking to get him next season before other big clubs barge in. Roque amid this interest revealed a lot of things in an interview.
” I really like Cristiano, he is an inspiration for his work. As for clubs, I have no preferences, I like all the greats in Europe. It is a dream for any boy who plays football in Brazil to be able to make the leap to a big team in Europe.”
“I like both Barca and Madrid. They are two very big clubs, which are always at the top.
Roque also had a say on Raphinha, who plays for Barcelona.
” He’s a crack, very fast, it’s like a machine.”
Of his intention to play for a big club in Europe, he said:
” Of course, it’s a dream, but I have to work and work so that when that opportunity comes I’ll be ready.”
