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.
