MADRID- Barcelona players are curiously downbeat ahead to one of their most main games of the season.
Catalan Club will go in the first “Classico” of this season to play against the most powerful club Real Madrid, crammed with distrust after a pair of disappointing performance in the La Liga.
Barcelona was outplayed all the way through 1-1 draw against Real Sociedad on Sunday for its double repeated setback in the league. They have home drawn against Malaga in their previous game as well.
“It was a day when very little things effort, “Barcelona defender Gerard Pique said later than the draw game against Real Sociedad. “The teams did not play a good match during the first half. But we improved playing in the second half. If we keep playing in this way, there is no hope for winning the trophy.
Sunday’s performance left Enrique welcoming the draw, while disclosing that Barcelona is ruled over by the opponent, this is something that never happened before.
“We played the worst game of this season. The opponents were very excellent, he said. “Football is so special that we almost won with a great chance…but it would have been fair.”
Barcelona good defender Jordi Alba said, “when an opponent plays superior we have to admit it.”
Enrique also said things should transform for the Classico when Barcelona lost points behind the Madrid. And it is hard to try to win the title straight away. Yet a draw match would not be a satisfying result for the viral advantage.
Enrique again added, “We will play against the leader and the direct match could be very critical. We will be at our home and things will be diverse.”
Barcelona lost against Real Madrid in the last played at camp Nou, which brought an end to Barcelona 39-game unbeaten stripe. Now Real Madrid becomes the lead team and unbeaten run in the champions league.
“The game against Madrid is one that everybody wants to win, said Barcelona defender Alba. “If we win this game, we will come back in the fight for La Liga.”
