Real Madrid are 7 points clear of Barcelona at the top of La Liga as things stand. Real Madrid have got an important match coming up this weekend, as Real Madrid will be playing at home and Barcelona will be playing away from home. Barcelona have been dropping lots of points away from home this season and to be honest, I am not surprised at all as I always had the belief that Barcelona had some unfair advantages whenever they played at home and even sometimes away from home.
Messi is not the Messi we know when he plays away from home. Most of his so called super goals are always scored and made in Camp Nou where he can use his extra ordinary speed ( incidentally his only trait apart from being extremely cool headed in the biggest of games unlike Cristiano Ronaldo).
Barcelona will obviously drop more points as we move into the thick of the season as their lean squad feels the heat of having to play 2 matches per week most of the times. Barcelona are in the finals of Copa Del Ray after they deservingly beat Real Madrid in the Quarterfinalsby4goalsto3.
RealMadridperformedequaltoBarcelona in the two legged tie but failed to capitalize on their chances and hence did not manage to punish Barcelona where they deserved to be punished. Ronaldo performed well, albeit after a long time, against Barcelona and hence proved his critics wrong for the time being at least .
Real Madrid are out of Copa Del Ray courtesy of Barcelona and if any one of my informers are right then there is a huge chance that Barcelona will meet Real Madrid in thequarterfinalsoftheChampionsLeagueaswell.Itseemstomethatwhateverhappensinworldfootball,RealMadridhasgottobeatBarcelonatowinany
