Barcelona vs Real Madrid Preview

Barcelona vs Real Madrid

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Camp Nou

Date: 6th May 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

This is one of the rare occasions that these two teams square up against each other and the La Liga title is not on the line, but that still doesn’t make this game insignificant.

The Catalans have just completed a domestic treble, but they are still unbeaten this season and this game remains their only major threat to going the whole season unbeaten.

They will hope to take at least a point here and achieve that remarkable feat.

Real Madrid may have their eyes on winning their third straight Champions League crown, but they would still love to be the team that ends Barcelona’s unbeaten run and they will be looking to ride their luck like they did against Bayern Munich on Tuesday in this game.

Madrid are one team that knows how to get results through whatever means possible, however, if they give the ball away to Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez like they did against Bayern Munich in midweek, they will surely pay for it.

Lionel Messi has been the driving force behind this Barcelona team and he netted a hattrick again last weekend to take his goal tally to 32 in La Liga and 43 in all competitions this season.

Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last three visits to Camp Nou, however, Barcelona have won 6 of their last 9 La Liga meetings with Real Madrid.
