Barcelona vs Real Madrid Preview
The Ronald Koeman Era took a bit of a turn this past weekend, as Barcelona lost 1-0 to Getafe. It was a surprising and uninspiring loss with very few highlights. Lionel Messi almost had a goal, hitting the post with one strike, and Antoine Griezmann missed a shot at close range, but other than that, Barca failed to mount much of an attack at all. The poor showing has left many wondering what to expect from Koeman and company against Madrid.
Koeman said after the match that while his top superstar hasn’t looked like himself of late, he’s not too concerned moving forward.
“Maybe, at the moment, Messi’s performances could be better,” Koeman said, before adding: “But he is happy, he is working hard and he wants to be the captain. I don’t have a single complaint. He has also had some bad luck. He hit the post [in the loss to Getafe] and on another day that goes in. I don’t have any doubts about his performances and we’re going to see him [at his best] in the upcoming games, I’m sure.”
Real Madrid is also coming off two rather head-scratching losses in a row. Los Blancos just lost 1-0 to Cadiz at home last weekend, an embarrassing upset few saw coming, and they followed that up with a 3-2 loss to Shakhtar Donetsk in Champions League play this week.
“I did not see the team as I wanted and when you do not see the team as you wanted it is your fault,” Real coach Zinedine Zidane said, taking responsibility for his team’s loss. “It’s a bad game, a bad night. I’m the coach and it’s up to me to find the solution. We deserve the criticism, all of us, and me first … I am responsible and I have to look for solutions because that cannot happen.”
Real Madrid clearly missed the services of Sergio Ramos on the defensive side, and the two second-half goals they mounted in the loss never gave them enough momentum.
Considering these recent defeats, this match now seems as though it will mean more to both Barcelona and Real Madrid, as neither squad wants to suffer yet another loss. It also promises to be a wildly competitive game, as most are when these two teams play.
In the 244 total games played between them, Barcelona has won 96, Real Madrid has won 96, and there have been 52 ties.
