The 2020 El Clásico predictions are as close as they could ever be. Real Madrid and Barcelona have had a slow start at the beginning of this season. However, expect them to perform in their best forms in such an important game. This will be a very close match, so what do you think the final result will be?
Zidane is Unbeaten at The Camp Nou
Zinedine Zidane is the most successful manager in Real Madrid’s recent history. Not only did the French manager dominate Europe, but he managed to have the upper hand in his matches against Barcelona. As a manager, Zizo faced Barcelona a total of nine games. He won four of those, drew three, and lost only on two occasions. The last game in La Liga saw Madrid with a 2-0 cruising win at the Bernabeu. Also, Zidane never lost at the Camp Nou with the last game ending in a scoreless draw. The 2020 El Clásico predictions say that he is not likely to continue this unbeaten run though he is known to rise on special occasions. Will Zidane come up with another cunning tactical plan for Barca to keep his clean record?
Players to Watch Out For
Since both sides have the best players in their squads, expect all players to perform well in such an important game. However, there are several players that you might want to pay closer attention to. For instance, we have arguably the greatest player of all time Lionel Messi leading the Barca attacking lineup. The Argentine holds several records against the Meringues. For instance, Messi scored 26 goals in 41 games which is more than any other player in history. However, he has not scored a goal in the past six El Clásicos, so expect him to be motivated to break the curse.
On the other side, we see a combination of experience and young talent leading Madrid’s attacking lineup. Karim Benzema has played 32 games against Barcelona scoring 9 goals and assisting 8 more in the process. He certainly got used to the El Clásicos atmosphere. On the other hand, 20-year-old Vinícius Júnior is a young talent that is still developing. He is very energetic with an extremely high work ethic on the pitch. The 2020 El Clásico predictions indicate that he will shine again after scoring his first goal against Barcelona in their last meeting.
