Real Madrid vs Barcelona Live Score and Analysis: La Liga May 2 2009

(This entry was originally published on Thursday, April 30th, 2009)

I really cannot remember any El Clasico match of recent years to be so important like the next one to be played on this Saturday at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid. From the title of this entry you already know who are playing. In fact, the world El Clasico is enough to remind you about the importance of the match. After 33 matches, Barcelona is leading the point table with 82 points while Real Madrid is just 4 points behind at 78 points from the same number (33) of matches. After Saturday’s match, there will be just another 4 to play. So, you can easily understand the excitement and tension related to this match.

The players of both the teams are excited and they are perhaps engaged in to war of words. The players of Madrid are confident that they have got the enemy at their own territory and they would demolish Barcelona in front of the Real supporters. On the other hand, some Barcelona players are trying to show that they are not worried about the El Clasico. Rather their focus is now on UEFA Champions League.

Lionel Messi: Chelsea is Bigger than Real Madrid Now

For his country, Lionel Messi is becoming a legend and many people think that he has the same potential like Diego Maradona. He plays for Barcelona team and he’s also one of their top strikers at this moment. Now, in the next few days Barcelona is going to play two important matches against Real Madrid and Chelsea. Both of the matches are very important to the club but he things that the match against Chelsea is much more important because if Barcelona loses it then they are out of Europe. I agree with him in this regard because even if they lose against real Madrid there’ll be another opportunity in Spain. So, I agree with him that Europe should be the more important factor at this moment and more attention should be given to Champions league semifinal match. However, you already know that Barcelona is leading Real Madrid by just 4 points and if the lose then the lead will be cut down to just one point.

Let me just remind you that in the corresponding fixture, earlier this season, Barcelona entertained Real Madrid and Barcelona won the match by 2-0. However, last year, when Real Madrid entertained Barcelona then Real defeated the Catalan side by 4-1 and won the La Liga title.

Some players will not be in the field to play:

Independent Online wrote:

Both coaches have problems with injuries and suspensions.

Barcelona defender Rafael Marquez is out for the season after damaging a knee in the 0-0 home draw with Chelsea on Tuesday, and Real defender Pepe has been banned for 10 matches following his sending off against Getafe on April 21.

Real will also be without midfielder Guti, who has an ankle injury, and it is unclear whether winger Arjen Robben and midfielder Wesley Sneijder will recover from muscle strains in time to feature.

Marcelo of Real Madrid thinks that his club will win against the opponent. He is confident about it and his feeling is:

“It will be a tough match, but it’s one that everyone dreams about playing in. The hype begins several weeks before the match. This will be the most-heated Clasico in the world.

“A lot of people didn’t believe we would get so close, but here we are. It’s not a matter of giving us credit or not. Things are going well and we’re seeing the results. We haven’t lost in 18 matches and I think the streak will continue because we can defeat Barcelona.

“The Champions League wears you down, but Barca are a complete team and it will make winning on Saturday very difficult.”

Raul will be perhaps the key man for Real. He is in fine form recently. He is getting old but there is no sign that he is becoming tired or losing his skill. He is still one of the best strikers playing in La Liga. His feeling is:

“Either team are capable of winning, of course, but the atmosphere and the fans will help us.

“We have to have faith in ourselves and how we play and we know that we have a chance to cause Barcelona problems.

“It is a game that is always special because of the rivalry, but it is obvious that we are playing for the title which will make it even more special.

On the other hand, Lionel Messi is the major weapon of Barcelona. Back in December, when Barcelona faced Real at home, that time the visiting Real players found it to be very difficult to contain Lionel Messi. They attacked on him physically a lot as they failed to keep up with him most of the time.

This is a match you should not miss at any cost. It does not matter where you live or what you will do that night. Try to be infront of your TV set. Or if you cannot then follow online live score. Here, I am giving you name of some of the websites that will provide live score of the match:
