The most eagerly anticipated fixture surrounding the footballing world has been sprung upon us, twice in the space of one week.
The famous Spanish rivalry kicks off in Madrid this Wednesday, following the first leg in the Nou Camp, where we saw Barcelona nick a victory from The Galactico’s reach, giving them the advantage heading into the second leg.
Barcelona’s Lionel Messi stole the show last Thursday, saving the blushes of goalkeeper, Victor Valdes, as he practically handed Madrid a lifeline following his blunder leading to Angel Di Maria’s consolation.
I reckon this game won’t produce as much goals as the first leg, but will provide us with just as much entertainment as well as card’s being shown left right and centre.The last eight matches the Spanish rivals have played, both teams have scored, indicating that there will be goals at both end’s of the pitch!
Madrid hitman, Gonzalo Higuain has backed his side to bounce back from defeat on Sunday and to take the game to Barcelona. The striker said: “We have to show on Wednesday that we are a great team. We have to bounce back against Barcelona” adding “It will be a completely different game. We have to stay calm, because a win will probably give us our first title of the season.”
Tune in at 21:00 GMT this Wednesday for some world class entertainment!
