Spanish football’s biggest rivalry enjoys a new chapter as FC Barcelona and Real Madrid go head-to-head in La Liga ra

One of football’s oldest and most important rivalries, the highly anticipated El Classico is about to kick off at the Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid take on FC Barcelona in a jaw-dropping match in the Spanish capital as both sides look to aim for top spot.

After facing a huge setback in the Champions League, Xavi would know that the Catalan fans would expect him to emerge victorious from this game. The last time the two sides met in La Liga, FC Barcelona gave future champions Real Madrid a tough lesson by beating them 4-0. But in the latest installment of this fierce encounter, Los Blancos would come in with all the guns blazing to maintain their unbeaten record this season.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men are yet to lose a game this summer and would be looking to extend their incredible record while Xavi would know there is no better opportunity than the El Classico to regain the trust of Barcelona fans . The Spanish manager’s failure in Europe has raised some eyebrows around Camp Nou and he would like to put all that speculation to bed when the club travel to Madrid on Sunday.

While Real Madrid have scooped up silverware for the sake of it in recent years, Barcelona are yet to regain the Spanish throne since 2018/19. Considering they are virtually out of the Champions League, Xavi’s eyes would be on domestic glory. And a victory on Sunday for either team could help them get a major boost at the start of the season.
