The expected lineups for the El Clasico
One of the biggest match of modern day football, the El Clasico, will be held later tonight as the two football giants at the helm of Spanish club football be come face to face to renew their rivalry and assert their authority over one another.
The two team would look to send out their best team possible for this fixture although this match is meaningless if we look at it in terms of league positions and title race as FC Barcelona are 10 points ahead of Real Madrid at this point and a win for the Catalans on Saturday will be just another blow to Real Madrid’s chances in this year’s La Liga race.
According to reports FC Barcelona will go with a formation of (4-3-3) with goal keeper Claudio Bravo to stand in between the goal posts. The MSN has been in top draw form this season and they will once again look to destroy the Madrid side like the way they did in the season’s first El Clasico when they defeated their rivals 4-0.
FC Barcelona (Expected lineup)
Alves – Piqué – Mascherano – Alba
Rakitic – Busquets – Iniesta
Messi – Suárez – Neymar
Meanwhile Real Madrid will also opt for the same formation for (4-3-3) and they will once again depend on their trio, BBC, to to do the bulk of the work and get them through this highly anticipated clash. Although the Los Blancos have a weak defense but their goal keeper Keylor Navas has been excellent form and on Saturday he will have to be on the top of his game to deny the opposing dangerous trio of Messi, Suarez and Neymar.
Real Madrid (Expected lineup)
Carvajal – Pepe – Ramos – Marcelo
Modric – Casemiro – Kroos
Bale – Benzema – Ronaldo
