Ronald Koeman stars for Los Blancos

Los Blancos outstripped the Catalans at Camp Nou in September with the 3-1 win that seemed to be the start of the final for Ronald Koeman.

However, since then the Dutchman has led a revolution under the control of Captain Lionel Messi. Next weekend, the domestic doubling of the Copa del Rey finale will continue to follow an unprecedented sequence of 19 games without defeat.

“A Clasico is a game other than the others. Barcelona is doing well, [and we] are running well; we’re fighting to win,” Koeman said at the press conference in his prematch.

But even if it ends on Saturday evening in the Spanish capital, the legend of the Dream Team will not get worked up.

“Tomorrow’s outcome is not decisive, many days remain for the match, and hard games are yet to come,” he added in a nod to a meeting with Atleti next month.

With the renaissance of Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Sergino Dest holding the fort as their pivot, they can continue as Frenkie de Jong – moving from the centre back – and Pedri also fed the attack.

Griezmann misses out Barcelona practice session

FC Barcelona - La Liga: Incredible: All three of Griezmann's children have  been born on April 8! | Marca

Given the fact that the third birthday of his child, who was remarkably born on 8 April, Antoine Griezmann has missed training, Ousmane Dembele and Messi have become a leader and are looking to expose a defence lacking both Raphael Varane and leader Sergio Ramos.

This factor was of little importance when Liverpool’s 13-time winner thrashed 3-1 at the Champions League in the middle of the week. But a decreasing PINC Premier League +0.6 percent is completely different from that of the best player in the world.

A global audience of a few hundred million people who are looking forward, sit back and prepare for entertainment.
