Real Madrid and Barcelona are set for El Clasico at Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid, Spain on Nov. 21, Saturday. According to Sofa Score, the High Profile encounter will see extreme security measures in Santiago, just a week after the Paris Attacks. Helicopters, drones, police dogs, special forces and hundreds of surveillance cameras are put up amidst security concerns in and around the stadium.
Andreas Iniesta talks about reaching perfection against arch rivals Real Madrid if the Catalans are to win this El Clasico. Iniesta will be captaining Barcelona for the first time in an El Clasico encounter and looks to clinch victory which will put them six-points ahead of Real Madrid at the top of the La Liga Points table.
“These are very unpredictable games, two teams with the kind of player who can change a game at any moment,” the Goal quoted him as saying.
“If there is one thing we need to be clear about it is ourselves. We have our idea of playing football, we have our way of organizing our play and we shouldn’t make any mistakes which give them a chance.”
Lionel Messi, on the other hand, has been practicing with his club which may indicate his return after missing seven weeks of action following a knee injury. Barcelona did well in the absence of Messi, with Neymar Jr. and Suarez carrying the baton for the Catalans.
Cristiano Ronaldo looks slightly out of touch as Real Madrid lost to Sevilla 3-2 in their last encounter. Fans hope Ronaldo regains his form on Saturday.
