Barcelona’s 22-point lead in La Liga on goal difference means they travel to second-placed Real Madrid this Sunday (4.15pm) for the ninth round of matches. The clasico is bound to be a heated affair, with Karim Benzema and Robert Lewandowski facing off for the first time in this fixture.
This Sunday, 16 October 2022, Real Madrid will host Barcelona in a “Classico” that promises to be very exciting. The two teams, unbeaten this season, have a chance to take the lead in the league. In a match with a very special atmosphere, it is difficult to pick a favourite between Carlo Ancelotti’s team and the Catalan team led by Carlo Ancelotti.
Gala match at the Santiago-Bernabéu Stadium on Sunday 14 October. Madrid host Barcelona for the ‘Classico’ of La Liga. It is a fascinating match because of the rivalry between the two teams but also because of their current form. Barcelona are in first place just ahead of Madrid. This promises to be a match full of excitement and suspense.
Second-placed Real Madrid have made an excellent start to the season. Carlo Ancelotti’s men, champions last season, had to deal with the absence of Karim Benzema for a month. Since his return, the French striker has not been at his best. But Madrid can count on Vinicius Junior’s good start to the season.
On the other hand, Barcelona is once again shining. The Catalans have won – like Real Madrid – seven games and drawn one. A special feature: they have conceded only one goal since the beginning of the season! A flamboyant start that has brought back some colour to the Barcelona fans, who are hoping for the Spanish league title at the end of the season. The only downside is a poor showing in the Champions League, which could weaken the club’s financial situation.
