On Saturday, starting at 4:00 p.m., Barcelona and Real Madrid will meet at the Camp Nou, behind closed doors, in a match corresponding to the 7th day of LaLiga Santander.
El Clásico is vital for both teams, as they haven’t started the season well at all.
Barça is 9th in the standings, with 7 points and 2 games less. He arrives at the meeting after losing in Getafe and thrashing the weak Ferencváros in the Champions League. Against Madrid, he must confirm the good feelings left in the clash against the Magyars, in which Koeman gave enough minutes to the less usual (such as Trincao or Dembélé) and they responded by offering a good level. In addition, the Dutch coach will finally be able to count on Jordi Alba, already recovered from his injury, which will allow him to place Sergiño Dest in his natural position, as a right back.
Real Madrid is 3rd in the table, with 10 points (one less than Real Sociedad and Villarreal) and 1 game less. The whites are going through a bad time. They reach the Classic after suffering two itchy defeats, both in Valdebebas, against Cádiz in the League and Shakhtar in the Champions League. Both games have made it very clear that Zidane cannot do without 3 players, Ramos, Casemiro and Valverde, if he wants his team to have the minimum physical level necessary to have victory options. Of the 3, Sergio is doubtful because of his left knee discomfort. The one who will not be at Zizou’s disposal is Odegaard, who is low along with Hazar, Carvajal, Odriozola and Mariano.
