The El Clasico match will take place today, Saturday, and Real Madrid will enter an excellent level, after playing twelve consecutive games with victory.
The real madrid also played one of its best and most beautiful matches against Liverpool in the Champions League.
According to the newspaper “Mundo Deportivo”, Real Madrid nonetheless has a set of problems that may bother him against Barcelona in the El Clasico, as follows:
1- Lack of experience
Real are missing their usual defensive strength in El Clásico, where Rafael Varane and Sergio Ramos are both absent, injured.
The Merengi will enter the El Clasico, with an unusual defense.
It includes three non-essential players in this streak, namely: Lucas Vásquez, Eder Militao and Nacho Fernandez.
The Real Madrid defense made a good match against Liverpool.
But they lack experience in facing Lionel Messi and his comrades in El Clasico.
2- Squeeze matches
Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid coach, will depend on five players in El Clásico.
The six most participated in matches throughout the season, they are: Mendy (3017 minutes), Modric (2858 minutes), Casemiro (2987 minutes), Benzema (2916 minutes), and Toni Kroos (2780 minutes).
And one of the most stressful matches of the season is always El Clásico.
Just as Real has a very important match against Liverpool, on Wednesday.
Especially in the midfield, Zidane may resort to rotation, by pushing Vidy Valverde, to rest Toni Kroos, or Modric.
Valverde may be a special player in the midfield.
The Liverpool match may play a role in distracting Real in El Clasico, as the Merengue players may subconsciously think about the “Anfield” position from now.
And just as Real Madrid players, they may fear that it will cause them to lose the Clásico.
To destroy them great morale before the Liverpool match, and to reduce their luck in the competition for the Liga title.
