El Clasico: Real Madrid welcome Barcelona at Bernabeu
Real Madrid and Barcelona face each other in second El Clasico of the season. Barcelona currently leading the league table with 55 points and Real Madrid trail by 2 points in La Liga.
Real Madrid coach has watched injuries ravage his squad and results have slipped of late, with Barcelona, despite their progressing off-pitch emergency, sitting back at the top of the table.
Real Madrid head into the 277th El Clasico on Sunday knowing that anything other than a victory is a poor result, and a potentially damaging one in terms of their season.
In their last 6 matches, Madrid has taken only 5 points with a draw against Celta Vigo and defeat to Levante fully opening wide the doors to the Blaugrana.
Somehow, Barcelona has figured out how to isolate their issues at boardroom level with what’s happening on the pitch and Setien has the team back at the summit of Spanish football.
