Barcelona vs Real Madrid: The La Liga match between Barcelona vs Real Madrid is taking place on Sunday, October 24 at 08:00 PM Nepali time.
Every football fan’s thoughts are on El Clasico this weekend, as Barcelona and Real Madrid prepare to resume their eternal rivalry.
To commemorate the occasion, Goal Africa has devoted an entire preview show to Sunday’s Clasico—most of football’s important matches.
In preparation for the match, the crew discusses the current state of play for both clubs following a difficult period of transition for both.
Barcelona, of course, is preparing for life without Lionel Messi, who left for Paris Saint-Germain in a tumultuous transfer.
With Cristiano Ronaldo also leaving Real Madrid, Sunday’s Clasico feels like the start of a new era for the match, the two teams, and Spanish football in general.
Transitions are seldom easy, and it’s no surprise that both clubs have struggled since their talisman’s departure.
Messi’s departure has left Barcelona without a primary offensive threat and, perhaps, an identity, with Ronald Koeman’s unpopularity and fan unhappiness making it difficult for a new generation of players to adjust to life at one of the world’s most prestigious teams.
Ansu Fati scored a beautiful goal against Valencia on his return from a 10-month injury layoff last Sunday, and his interplay with Memphis Depay will undoubtedly be crucial if Barca are to reach their full potential.
Philippe Coutinho’s goal against Valencia, as well as Sergio Aguero’s debut for the Catalan giants, could auger well for the future, however, Koeman’s side’s increasing optimism will be dashed if they lose on Sunday.
Real Madrid’s recent defeats by Sheriff Tiraspol and Espanyol were unsatisfactory, but optimism has returned following Shakhtar Donetsk’s midweek devastation.
Carlo Ancelotti can rely on the renowned midfield of Luka Modric, Casemiro, and Toni Kroos to make the difference, while he, too, has concerns about his defense’s composition.
