Real Madrid are looking unstoppable this season. Los Blancos are at joint top of La Liga and also have made it to the round of 16 for the 31st time in a row. 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 top.
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 Youri Tielemans for the midfield position. The Belgian is on the list for a lot of top clubs. This summer, he was very close to joining Arsenal but the deal fell off. Leicester City are sitting at the bottom of the table fighting relegation at the moment. Tielemans is also having a hard season but trying everything to make the team click. Brendan Rodgers is very clear about his intention of keeping Tielemans. He still feels there is time to turn the situation around and get a top-half table finish.
Real Madrid and Barcelona await Clasico
Barcelona travels to the Santiago Bernabeu to take on arch-rivals Real Madrid. The biggest game in world football will be massive as both teams will do anything for the 3 points. Real Madrid are having a great run of form as they have been unbeaten the whole season. Barcelona had defeats against Inter Milan and Bayern Munich. They come into this match not in the best shape. Many players on the team are still out due to injuries.
Real Madrid themselves will be short of 2 major players. Tony Rudiger suffered a head injury in their game against Shaktar. But the most notable absentee so far is Thibaut Courtois who is injured for 2 weeks. Last time, Real Madrid conceded 4 goals at home in what was a vintage game by Barcelona. The world awaits this massive clash as it hit 1 billion viewership around the globe.
