Real Madrid travel to play Barcelona in La Liga with both sides coming off victories in the Champions League. Xavi has been dealt some difficult injuries to key players like Pedri, Frenkie de Jong and Robert Lewandowski but Eder Militao and Thibaut Courtois are also out for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
On the podcast, Jamie Kemp and Robbie Dunne discuss Real Madrid’s game against a resurgent Sevilla under Diego Alonso. They discuss the left-back conundrum Ancelotti is faced with and protecting Jude Bellingham from fatigue. Bellingham is trying to become the first Real Madrid player to score on his La Liga debut, his Champions League debut and his Clásico debut.
Fermin Lopez is the toast of the town and the lads also discuss where he will play on Saturday during the Clásico. João Félix is coming up against the side he has played against most without scoring and they also chat about how well the Portuguese is playing without necessarily having the goals and assists to back it up.
It’s a Barcelona-Real Madrid preview podcast packed with facts, stats and tactical insights.
