On October 24, 2021 at 7:15 am PST, the 10th round of La Liga will see a key match, the “National Derby”, as Barcelona will host Real Madrid.
Barca’s lineup has changed a lot this season, with Messi joining Paris and Griezmann returning to Atletico Madrid. Although the team has brought in Aguero and Depay, the team’s performance is very unsatisfactory. after 8 rounds of league play, they have won 4, drawn 3 and lost 1, ranking 8th in the league with 15 points, which can be said to be the worst ranking in recent seasons.
It is worth noting that Barcelona has been very dominant at home this season, with an undefeated record of 4 wins and 1 draw in 5 league home games.Its home result currently ranks first in the league.
Barca’s recent form has picked up, with back-to-back wins in the league and Champions League group stage.
The team’s latest match was at home against Ukrainian Premier League giants Dynamo Kiev. The team dominated the field, with 62% possession, 3 out of 11 shots on goal, while the opponent only had a poor 1 shot on goal.
In the first half, Piqué received an assist from Alba and helped his team score a goal, finally winning the match 1:0. The team’s morale was boosted by the consecutive wins.
As for the lineup, Dembele, Araujo, Gorzales and Gorzales are all injured and will not be able to play in this match.
Real Madrid had a relatively perfect start to the new season, with eight consecutive unbeaten matches. However, the team’s performance fluctuated due to the double-legged battle between the league and the Champions League, even losing to the promoted Spaniards and the lower league team Sheriff.
In the current 8 rounds, the team has 5 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, ranking 3rd in the league with 17 points. From the data side, Real Madrid scored 22 goals in 8 rounds of league and conceded 10 goals, which is the team with the most goals in La Liga at present. It can be seen that the front line consisting of Benzema, Vinicius and Azar is still very sharp.
Real Madrid’s most recent match in the Champions League was away to Ukrainian Premier League side Donetsk Miners. The team still dominated the field, with 58% possession, 10 shots on target out of 23, and more than three times the number of shots on goal than the opponent.
The team gave the opponent a goal in the first half, and in the second half, with goals from Vinicius May, Rodrigo and Benzema, they finally swept the opponent with 5:0, and ended the slump of not having a win in the previous 3 games.
In the past meetings between the two teams, Barcelona has won 4, drawn 3 and lost 3 against Real Madrid in the last 10 times, which is not a big advantage.
With the departure of Messi and others, Barcelona’s performance this season is really not as good as in previous seasons; while Real Madrid performance is decent, not much difference compared to the same period in previous seasons, the overall performance is still relatively stable.
Combined with the current state of both sides, this battle Real Madrid still has a chance to bring home points.
