Thirteen games are yet in the list, and Barcelona is leading Real Madrid by two points. On the coming Sunday, at Bernabeu, El Clasico is going to be crucial in searching the most enthralling La Liga title race over the years. Here special encouragement for this season from the team is missing. And both sides had been struck by significant injury blows. Real Madrid is presently going through Champions League Home defeat. And that’s why there are uncertainties in this game that the team will bounce back to the glorious spirit or not. The entire situation is going to be tense and closely contested.

Is Benzema ready to carry the pressure for shot-shy Real?

During Real Madrid’s season, it was prominent that they were struggling hard in front of the goal. Last week’s 1-0 loss at mid-table Levante is making is more prominent. It is the eighth time loss they have faced in this season. During the starting phase of this campaign, Karim Benzema has carried away the pressure almost single-handedly. In the first sixteen league games, he has netted thirteen goals. It was concealing the team’s overall lack inside the penalty area. Since last Christmas, Karim Benzema has mustard one league goal. It is essential because it helps in winning January’s local derby against Atletico Madrid. No other players of the team stepped up to play their parts properly.

Sergio Ramos is the second-highest scorer in the team with five goals, but three of the total goals came from the spot. Apart from penalties, no other Real players except Karim Benzema have scored more than three goals.

Players who known to be forwards in the team faced a bad session in front of the goal: Eden Hazard (1), Gareth Bale (two league goals), Rodrygo (2), Luka Jovic (2), and Vinicius Junior (1). They all were unexpectedly underperformed.

Barca is injured, but options are still there

This time Barcelona is going to be missing their first choice full-backs as Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba are injured. These two will be replaced by impressive duo of junior Firpo and Nelson Semedo. Apart from this, there is also a doubt that Gerard Pique as he had ankle injury during the draw at Napoli last Tuesday. Along with this, QuiqueSetien, the recently recruited manager, has lots of options to support the main man Lionel Messi. Lionel Messi has again accelerated the team in this season by achieving totals of 18 goals and 12 assists.

Last Tuesday, against Napoli, Setien chose Antoine Griezmann and Messi in the attack. He had also stacked the midfield with a small quartet of Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal, Sergio Busquets, and Frenkie de Jong. He can go with the same set this weekend, but a pair of exciting options are available there.
