FC Barcelona vs. Real Madrid / La Liga – El Clasico was not played for a long time, but it does not have too big result value, since the champion is known. Barcelona has recently mathematically confirmed the title of the champions, but it has long been clear that this trophy definitely goes in their showcases and that they will take it away from Real, which has played badly in the championship this season and they are not even third. Barcelona has also won the Kings’ Cup, but Real will again play the finals of the Champions League and they have the chance to win the third consecutive title. In the first part of the season, Barcelona has celebrated smoothly at Bernabeu with 3-0. Begins: 06.05.2018. – 20:45 CET
Footballers of Barcelona are certainly wait for the start of this game, as they have secured the mathematical title of the champions in the last round, which they are taking away from this fierce rival and now they have to only celebrate in this match. It is a great satisfaction for the Catalans after watching the Catalans celebrating last year in two competitions and then they were defeated twice in the beginning of the season by Real in the Super Cup.
However, for the season to be fully successful, Barcelona needed success in the Champions League, however, they were eliminated by Roma in the quarter-finals and their dream about the title of European champions was extinguished just because of a bad match. It is interesting that Barcelona has lost only once this season in the Cup from Espanyol, but they won this trophy once from Roma, which cost them a lot. Iniesta is questionable for this derby but they would probably play.
Probable lineups FC Barcelona: ter Stegen – S.Roberto, Pique, Umtiti, J.Alba – Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta, Coutinho – Messi, L.Suarez
Real has failed to defend the title of Spanish champions last season, but it was clearly practically after the first part of the season. They simply did not succeed in playing well and they have lost some matches they should not have, so Barcelona's advantage only grew and at one point Real realized they could not reach it and they turned completely to that competition in which they were inviolable rulers and recorders, and it is the Champions League.
They had a very difficult road to the new finals because they have eliminated PSG, Juventus and Bayern, so they had nothing to complain about, even though they were dangerously hanging in that duel with Juventus, and it was not easy for Bayern even though they celebrated in the first matches as guests. They have completely neglected the championship, and there was a combined lineup on the field, which is understandable. Now it will not be so, because this is El Clasico, and they have 20 days to finish the Champions League, so they do not have to rest, but Isco and Varan are questionable, while Carvajal will also not be able to play.
Probable lineups Real Madrid: Navas – Vazquez, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo – Casemiro, T.Kroos, Modrić – Asensio, Benzema, Ronaldo
FC Barcelona vs. Real Madrid PICK
Barcelona wants to celebrate the title with a victory over their biggest rival and they will play at full strength in this derby, but Real is relieved and their wish is to spoil that celebration, and we expect a totally open game from the guests, and a lot of goals in El Clasico.
