El Clasico Messi v Ronaldo

Watch Barcelona v Real Madrid El Clasico: Not About Mess v CR7

BARCELONA, Spain, Sporting Alert – Barcelona and Real Madrid will face-off on Saturday (April 1) in what is a must win El Clasico clash for the visitors at Camp Nou.

Lionel Messi and Barcelona are 10 points ahead of Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga title race and a defeat on Saturday will more than likely end their chance of winning the domestic crown this season.

Messi and co. have been busy preparing for the home battle.

And you can watch another Messi v Cristiano Ronaldo El Clasico match-up this Saturday live from 2:30 pm on beIN Sports en Español, beIN Sports USA, SportsMax, fuboTV and Sky Sports 2/HD. Also follow livescores and updates on www.livescores.com

There have been several reports in Spain which are suggesting that Zinedine Zidane has been coming under a lot of pressure as manager of Real Madrid, but really, what can he do.

Let’s not fool ourselves, Real Madrid are no where near to Barcelona at the moment as the likes of Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have not been able to match what Messi, Neymar and Suarez have been able to do.

There have been expected high praises for the Messi, Neymar and Suarez trident, regarded as the best in history, but Barca’s manager Luis Enrique believes the El Clasico will be more about teams, “not duel between tridents.”

“They are the ones responsible for making the difference. But more than a game between tridents, this is a game between teams,” Enrique said at his prematch press conference.

“We need good assists, we need help creating pressure. We need to be compact and complete and for each of the players to find their best form.”

Meanwhile, Zidane will be hoping that hard tackling midfielder Toni Kroos and young center-back Raphael Varane can shake off injuries, although SportingAlert.com understands that Varane is struggling to recover from the calf muscle problem he sustained while he was on international duties with France.
