A few days before the Clasico between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, Joan Laporta spoke about his team’s chances of winning on Sunday.
Sunday will be the most anticipated match of the year in the world of football: the Clasico between Barcelona and the Real Madrid. If it is probably not the most enticing in history, this match retains a special flavor for supporters of both teams and football fans in general. And although Real Madrid seem slightly favorites, Barca president Joan Laporta looks rather optimistic.
During the press conference given on the occasion of the extension ofAnsu Fati (until 2027), Laporta said he believes his team can beat Real de Benzema. “I have good feelings, we stay on two victories, we have recovered players, Ansu and Kun (Agüero) are there now, and we play in front of our home crowd. I take this opportunity to encourage our fans, there will be a great show. If we beat Real Madrid with an Ansu goal, it would be great to celebrate this event ”, he said in remarks relayed by Sport.

After a more than complicated start to the season, especially in the Champions League (two 3-0 defeats against Bayern and Benfica), the Blaugranas won in the league against Valencia and in the Champions League against Dynamo Kiev. Victories that do good from an accounting standpoint, but the teammates of Memphis Depay struggle to convince in the proposed game. It will be necessary to live up to the event to resist the very prolific duo Benzema-Vinicius, who shone in Real’s victory against Shaktar Donetsk (5-0) mardi.
