LaLiga

We've waited, and this weekend we'll have our first El Clasico of the season. In the league there are currently only 2 points separating these 2 teams but the situation in both clubs is different.

Both teams played Champions League matches against Ukrainian teams this week. Real traveled and have a smooth 0:5 defeat against Shaktar. The player of the match was announced to be none other than Karim Benzema, playing in the form of his life. After Ronaldo's departure to Juventus and Bale's departure to the golf lawns, he had to take on more responsibility and he had to become the driving force of the offensive. And he succeeded. He did well last season but what he is showing this season is truly amazing. After the return of Carlo Ancelotti to the Real bench, a brand new version of Vinicius Jr. has strengthened the attack. In the league, Vinícius scored 3 goals in 35 games last season. This season, he has 5 goals so far after 8 games played and has already surpassed his last season's tally. In the week against Shaktar he scored another 2 + added an assist. The game has changed for the better. It's an attacking game of football that has a move on target. Finally, they are not passing the ball in front of the box like under Zidane.

On the other hand, there is Barcelona who welcomed Dynamo Kiev on their stadium on Wednesday. Barcelona were basically playing for everything as they have 0 points after 2 rounds in the Champions League and needed a win. Barcelona eventually won this game 1-0 when a weak Barcelona attack was saved by stopper Pique.
We all probably know that Barcelona lost their legend Messi in the summer. But at the moment, Barcelona have no such player. After his arrival, Depay set the bar quite high but even he hasn't been doing well lately and is losing a lot of balls unnecessarily. Fati came back after a long injury but the game against Dynamo didn't go well at all. The young talent has inherited Messi's 10 and I fear this may put unnecessary pressure on the youngster.

Barcelona is struggling in the game. The financial (in)stability of the club has a big part to play in this. It is because of it that the club is reinforcing players like Luuk De Jong. With all due respect to him, this player has no shot at Barcelona. Ronald Araujo and Pedri should not be available against Real either. So I expect Pique + Garcia as a stopper duo. Garcia is a young offspring who returned to Barcelona after years from Manchester City where Pep used him at most for the cup or when they have a title. This poor experience can be seen in his shaky tackles or the fact that Garcia has already seen 2 red cards this season. Other variants are Umtiti and Lenglet. Umtiti hasn't played a competitive game this season and Lenglet has built a reputation last season for his ability to mess up the impossible.

In a nutshell. Real are having fun with football this season and their football is much better to watch than what Barcelona are showing. Barcelona's defence simply doesn't have the quality to stop the Benzema - Vinicius duo and on the other hand they don't have anyone who can properly threaten goalkeeper Coutrois in Real's goal.
Real have won the last 3 El Clasico and will arrive in Barcelona on Sunday with the goal of extending that streak.

H2H:
Real
2:1 Barcelona
Barcelona 1:3 Real
Real
2:0 Barcelona

My bet:
Draw No Bet: Real Madrid @ 1.90 (bet365)

Looks like both Depay and Gavi should come off, the former is playing like a donut on the ball and the other has a body made of donuts with how badly he gets muscled off anything
