Schalke Can Score Four, How Many Goals Will Messi Score In El Clasico?
With Real Madrid’s defence crumbling, there’s little doubt that the superb Lionel Messi will find his name on the score sheet in El Clasico.
The four-time Ballon D’Or winner scored a brace in Barcelona’s 2-0 win over Eibar on Saturday evening, continuing a great run of form for 2015. This could prove to be devastating for Real Madrid chances in next weekend’s El Clasico.
In contrast, Real Madrid’s form has been poor of late. It may even prove better for them that the match will be played in the Camp Nou, because the club’s fans have been booing them as much, lately, as any Barcelona supporter would.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men are winless in the games and conceded four times against their Champion’s League opponents, Schalke on Tuesday evening. With only today’s match against Levante coming between Real Madrid and a meeting with eternal rivals, Barcelona. The favourites for the contest are clear.
Lionel Messi has now scored five goals in his last two appearances and, depending on how he plays against Manchester City on Wednesday, it seems like he will, once again, be the man to tear Real Madrid’s defence apart.
The diminutive Argentine has scored 21 goals (the all-time record) against Real Madrid, after coming up against the Capital team on 29 ocassions.
