El Clasico behind closed doors is something to behold if not intriguing. Playing in an empty Camp Nou is like playing in a big pot but let’s hope it doesn’t put a damper on the quality of football. Barcelona start as slight underdogs having lost the last one last season as well as relinquishing the la liga title having led for much of last season. They are getting to grips with the Koeman style of tiki taka and grit. They need to find a place in their formation for Antoine Griezmann who is in my opinion being slightly misused on the wing. Real Madrid like Barca are playing on the back of a defeat and midweek were made to pay for underestimating the opponent. Vinicius Jnr should start he scored the winner last time around and sparked the failed comeback against Shakhtar midweek.
