MultiChoice Africa – El Clasico preview

Published

SuperSport viewers on DStv and GOtv are set to be enthralled by the biggest club football match in the world as the latest edition of ‘El Clasico’ – the rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid – looms large this weekend.

The teams’ La Liga Round 26 clash is set for Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday 1 March 2020 and you can see all the action live on SuperSport.

 

The teams switched positions in this past weekend’s round of  La Liga matches, with Barcelona racking up an emphatic 5-0 win over Eibar on Saturday, while Real Madrid slumped to a surprise 1-0 loss at Levante later the same day. The results saw Barcelona move up to pole position with 55 points, while Real are second with 53. A further 10 points separates Los Blancos from third-placed Atletico Madrid, underlining how important El Clasico will be in deciding the title.

 

Barca’s big win at the weekend featured four goals from the incomparable Lionel Messi, who will be hoping to add to his record tally of 26 El Clasico goals come Sunday night.

 

“We have been waiting for a result like this, where everything goes in our favour,” Barcelona boss Quique Setien said as he gears up for his first El Clasico since succeeding Ernesto Valverde.

“In other games we have not finished the chances we have created, but [against Eibar] we have. The three goals before the break have given us piece of mind ahead the second half, and we have an important week ahead.”

 

Real have dropped five points in their last two matches to bring into doubt their ability to reclaim the La Liga title. Their performance against Levante was an abject one and came with two massive blows for El Clasico, with news that Rodrygo is suspended and Belgian attacker Eden Hazard is ruled out with an ankle injury.

 

“We failed at the most important thing in football and that’s to score. It’s screwed up because in a week we’ve dropped five points, but this is football,” lamented manager Zinedine Zidane. “We didn’t deserve that today. We went from more to less. They made their shots count. We can’t look back now.

 

“My players gave everything and I’m annoyed. Losing five points in two games is a bad moment for us. We’re playing for everything this week. We’ve got to keep our heads up. We’ve had good moments before and now we’re in a bad one but we’ll come out of this.”
