El Clasico 2012 – FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid

Barcelona and Real Madrid will play the first El Clasico of the season as the two giant’s battle it out at Camp Nou on October 7th. The last clash came in the Spanish super cup where Real Madrid came from being a goal down after the first leg to win the Spanish Super Cup by the away goals rule with the final aggregate score 4-4.

After a scintillating season that saw Real Madrid crowned La Liga champions for the first time since 2008. They have started this year in a complete contrast as they have had their worse start to a La Liga season in ten years leaving them currently eight points adrift of Barcelona who currently sit top of the league with a 100% record. Barcelona under the new management of Tito Vilanova on the other hand are looking to make amends for a disappointing season last year and have so far showed to be doing that with their impeccable start to the season. Barcelona only made two summer signings in the form of high flying left back Jordi Alba who won the European championships in the summer with Spain and Alex Song the Cameroonian international from Arsenal. Barcelona were also heavily benefited by the return of Carles Puyol who brings much needed experience and an air of authority to the Barcelona teams backline. In addition they also welcomed back Spain’s all-time leading goal scorer David Villa who brings extra firing power to the Barcelona front line.

Real Madrid are currently surrounded by controversy in regards to their star man and biggest threat to Barcelona Cristiano Ronaldo. The Real Madrid talisman is currently said to be unhappy at the club for reasons unknown to those outside of the club’s circles and this could be a major reason regarding Madrid’s current lack of form. Madrid’s new signings have yet to make any real impact to the results but the experience both Luka Modric and Micheal Essien possess could prove an invaluable asset to Madrid’s title defence.

No matter what the form is of each team the El Clasico is always a spectacle and rarely denies the spectators of entertainment and a win for Real Madrid at the Camp Nou could just well be the incentive they need to kick start their season.

No shows booked at the moment.
