Real Madrid vs Barcelona Match Preview
Barcelona have had much the better of the El Clasico rivalry in recent seasons and are backed to pull five points clear in La Liga title race by winning at the Bernabeu again on Sunday.
The info above illustrates just how dominant Barca have been against their arch-rivals over the last five years in particular. Whereas Real Madrid have ruled Europe by winning the Champions League three times during that timeframe, Barcelona have been kings of Spain.
It’s a straight fight for glory in La Liga this term and after Real looked on course to regain the crown, they have slipped up by taking only one point from their last two matches against Celta Vigo and Levante.
That has allowed Barcelona to regain the advantage for they have won their latest four league games to move two points ahead at the top of the table, even though striker Luis Suarez is out injured until mid-May.
Lionel Messi bagged four goals against Eibar last weekend, but the scoring responsibility has been shared around the team and manager Quique Setien has steadied the ship nicely since his appointment in mid-January.
Of course, both teams have been in Champions League action this week and Barcelona have had an extra day to recover from their 1-1 draw away to Napoli than Real Madrid following their home match against Manchester City (result not known at the time of writing).
Hopefully, for the neutrals especially, this will be a livelier El Clasico than the 0-0 draw at Camp Nou in December and given their superb record in this part of the Spanish capital over recent seasons, Barcelona look worth siding with to take a big step towards retaining their league crown.
