Barcelona Club football’s biggest thriller ‘El Clásico’ is going to confront Barcelona and Real Madrid teams on Sunday. The match played in La Liga will be in the center of attraction in many ways. This will be the first time in 11 years when none of the Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the El Clásico match will be present.
The absence of Barcelona’s striker Lionel Messi and former Real striker Cristiano Ronaldo can reduce the enthusiasm of the match, but in the absence of both of these, many other players will have a good opportunity to prove themselves. Barcelona will miss Messi in this match in their home ground camp now, who is out of the ground for three weeks due to fracture in the right hand. Many supporters just come to see Messi’s game.
No Ronaldo, no Zidane: Former Real striker Ronaldo also now plays with Italy’s Juventus Club. In such a way, Real’s supporters will also lack Ronaldo’s shortfall. This is the first time since December 23, 2007, when Macy and Ronaldo will not be seen in El Clásico. Since then, 35 matches have been held between these two. Not only that, apart from Messi and Ronaldo, El Clásico’s supporters will also miss former Real manager Jean-Daddy Zidane and former Barcelona midfielder Andre Inesta.
Opportunities with other players: Apart from Messi and Ronaldo, there are many such players in both of these clubs who have played in El Clásico for a long time. Sergio Ramos of Real has played 38 El Clásico, and in this case, he is jointly third in the list of most competing players.
Apart from this, Real is an experienced star like Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Luca Modric. Barcelona also lacks experience. In the absence of Messi, Louise Suarez, Gerard Pick and Philip Koutinho will take over the reins of Barcelona. At the same time there are many young players in both clubs who are eager to make their mark.
Muller to the manager: When Julien Loptegui was made manager of Real Madrid, he probably would have been the greatest joy of his life. However, over time his team’s performance went down and questions are being raised on his strategies today. If their team defeated Barcelona in Camp Now, then they will get some more time for the matches.
Despite the absence of Messi and Ronaldo, the glow of El Clásico will not diminish. Even before these two players El Classico was in existence. El Clásico will always be El classic. – Ernesto Valverso, manager, Barcelona
