Real Madrid vs Barcelona El Clasico Preview
The Vikings lost both El Clasico matches of La Liga in this season. With these 2 defeats, they dropped from top spot position to third spot with 2 points difference with Barca & three points behind Atletico Madrid.
Blaugrana were knocked out by Atleti in quarter final round of UEFA Champions league 2013-14 competition with an aggregate score of 2-1. Their first leg meeting was a draw of 1-1 at Camp Nou & then single goal of Koke helped Atletico Madrid to reach semi finals after 340 years.
Despite with a lead of 3-0 in quarter finals against Borussia Dortmund, the whites survived a lot at Signal Iduna Park. 2 first half goals of Marco Reus were not enough to compete against vikings without Cristiano Ronaldo.
Both teams are undefeated in this competition & qualified successfully for final. After defeating Atleti in semi final round with a clean sheet, Los Blancos now become the first team to qualify for this round with conceding a goal.
