The reporter’s opinion
Gonzalo Aguado ( @UEFAcomGonzaloA ): It is true that it is a classic a bit decaffeinated as there is not much at stake, since Barça is a champion and Madrid is already thinking about the Champions League final. Even so, a match like that never leaves anyone indifferent, and it will also be the last chance to see Andrés Iniesta in a Classic. The 0-3 of the first round in the Bernabéu still stings in the white team, and Barça will try to give a joy to his fans after winning the title last week.
Santi Retortillo, Real Madrid ( @UEFAcomSantiR ): Although the League is already won by Barça and Real Madrid has its sights set on the UEFA Champions League final, a Classic always raises passion. About the Camp Nou, three points that can give great joy or suppose a tremendous bump in moral level and for fans. As always, impossible forecast to decipher. In the Camp Nou we have a good date to close a soccer Sunday.
Barcelona : Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Umtiti, Alba; Coutinho, Rakitić, Busquets, Iniesta / Paulinho; Messi, Luis Suárez.
Doubts : Iniesta (discomfort)
Real Madrid : Keylor Navas; Lucas Vázquez, Nacho, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo; Modrić, Casemiro, Kroos, Asensio; Ronaldo, Bale.
Low : Carvajal (biceps femoral)
Doubts: Varane (discomfort), Isco (shoulder)
Statements of the coaches
Ernesto Valverde, coach of Barcelona
A Classic is a Classic and, in the end, it is a significant match in the season. Fortunately for us, we are already champions. There are enough inducements for that to not be noticed. Obviously we want to win, regardless of the classification, and they also. Because of the situation, because of the rivalry. They will come with the idea of breaking our streak and I hope it is a good match.
We want to defend our streak, beat Madrid. What is Barça playing in a Classic? We play a lot. We all know what a Classic means.
Zinédine Zidane, Real Madrid coach
We will give the maximum to win at Barcelona. We are well, we rest well and now we are ready for tomorrow’s game, ready to play. It is a game that will not change the classification, but we have to play well and make a good game. We will try to do the maximum to win.
Let’s think about winning. The only thing I will decide is that the one who is not one hundred percent will not play, but the others will. We have games ahead and we will play to be as high as possible in the league.
