Prelude to El Clasico, Leg 2

April 16, 2011

El Clasico is finally upon us once again. Mind you, this is the first of FOUR clasicos that will occur in the span of eighteen days, so this match-up can definitely set the tone for the rest of the games.

I’m sure that November 2010’s El Clasico is still fresh on everybody’s mind. After all, last leg, Real Madrid suffered an excruciating loss under fierce rivals Barcelona at Camp Nou. We were simply battered at 5-0. Will history repeat itself?

I think not.

First and foremost, Real Madrid will be playing will all of its key players present, as opposed to to last time when Higuain – an integral part of the team – was out with an injury. Furthermore, I believe that the team has matured, and that they play much better together now. I am also certain that advancing to the semi-finals of the Champions League has done wonders to the boys’ confidence. Lastly, the game will be held at the Santiago Bernabeu, and it is without any doubt that I say that the 12th men will be present.

I also admire the fact that the boys have resisted responding to the taunts presented by the Barcelona players, because surely, we’re better than that. Oh, and Valdes, Pique? Not cool. Not cool at all.

To wrap this all up, the team needs to go into the game with their heads held high, and to play their best. That’s it. Should they lose, the fans will have their back. Should they win, the fans will be beside them every step of the way. Hala Madrid!
