There are twenty days until the final of the Champions League. It is a key date in the diary of all madridistas as the team look to continue making history. Before travelling to Kiev however, there are four games left to play in LaLiga. The domestic league is coming to a close in the best way, with el Clásico being played at the Camp Nou. Real Madrid visit Barcelona (8:45pm CEST) in what will be the fourth and final clash between the two sides this season. Two went in favour of the madridistas and one was won by the azulgrana.
The Whites look to win in Barcelona to start off a week of three games in LaLiga (they visit Sevilla on Wednesday and host Celta on Saturday). “There are four games left and we want to finish as high up the table as possible. We will prepare for the Champions League final by maintaining this intensity”, stated Zidane.
The Whites coach had the entire squad minus Carvajal available for the training session, as the full-back continues with his recovery process. The coach insisted to the press that he did not want to take any risks with the player: “Those who are not at 100% will not feature. We will give our all to win el Clásico”.
REAL MADRID HAVE WON THEIR LAST SIX AWAY GAMES.
Aside from the thrill of reaching a third consecutive Champions League final, the Whites travel to Barcelona after winning their last six games away from home. PSG, Juventus, Bayern, Éibar, Las Palmas and Málaga were their rivals. In thieir last three visits to the Camp Nou the Whites managed two wins and a draw.
Barcelona were crowned LaLiga champions last time out and are unbeaten in the competition. Valverde’s side have only lost once at home this term. That was when Real Madrid visited the azulgrana, in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup, which ended 1-3. Today the Whites will once again look to get the win at the Camp Nou.
