At Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys on the afternoon of Saturday, La Liga champions Barcelona and present league leading Real Madrid will play what is perhaps the biggest game on the football schedule. With 24 points after their first 10 games of the season, Barcelona, still unblemished in every competition this season, is ranked 3rd in the standings, with Real Madrid leading the way with 25 points.
This week, both teams prevailed in the Champions League by the identical score of 2-1. Braga was defeated by Los Blancos, with Jude Bellingham emerging victorious. Fermin Lopez’s strike helped Barca defeat Shakhtar Donetsk.
The only team in La Liga without a loss this year is Barcelona. Frenkie de Jong and Robert Lewandowski are both injured, though. This has given Xavi’s team the opportunity to incorporate young players, as evidenced by Marc Guiu, at 17 years old, who scored the game-winning goal over Athletic Bilbao during their most recent league match. Similar to previous years, the Blaugrana’s defense has been top-notch in 2023–24, with Xavi’s team recording an impressive 5 clean sheets over 7 competitive home games. Numerous notable players, like Jules Kounde, Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski, Pedri, Sergi Roberto, and Frenkie de Jong, are out of Barcelona’s blockbuster on Saturday.
Real Madrid has won their previous 4 La Liga matches since their defeat to Atletico Madrid a month ago. This streak includes 3 wins, but in their most recent league encounter, they were only able to draw 1-1 with Sevilla. Because it pitted their former captain Sergio Ramos facing his previous colleagues, the contest was noteworthy. Bellingham, who will be participating in his inaugural El Clasico, will be the center of focus. For Carlo Ancelotti’s team, the English midfielder currently has netted 11 goals in 12 matches, therefore he is expected to do well facing Barcelona. Although the Madrid team’s injury issue has lately abated, Ancelotti is unable to use Arda Guler, Eder Militao, Thibaut Courtois, Dani Ceballos, or Joselu.
