Barcelona are not the Favourites in El Clasico

Barcelona are not the Favourites in El Clasico

The first of the El Clasico fixtures is almost upon us.

Saturday lunch-time will see Barcelona walk out at the Bernabeu Stadium looking to get the three points, against Real Madrid that would see the gap between the two sides stretched to fourteen points.

Barcelona have not been beaten in Ls Liga this season but ahead of the game, at his pre-match press conference, the Barcelona head-coach, Ernesto Valverde had a few words of caution for the Barcelona fans who are expecting their side to win this eagerly awaited clash, remarking to the assembled journalists;

'I don't think we are favourites, the league table has no influence on games like this because of the tension there always is.

'Madrid are such a powerful team that they can strike you down even when you're in your best moment of form. Also, they will be at home.'

Wise words from the boss there but we`re taking, as you think we would, Barcelona to edge what could be a thrilling encounter laced with excitement, 2-1 to Barcelona for us!
