When Barcelona won El Clasico 3-2 this time around held at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, Real Madrid’s home ground, thereby garnering the same points on La Liga table. Zinedine Zidane’s men are currently second on the charts in La Liga tournament. Barcelona and Real Madrid are running head-to-head for the Title. Real Madrid has one more match to play which can give them three points to move above their Catalan rivals.
Real Madrid is in pivotal position to win both trophies this season – La Liga and Champions League. Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick as they thumped firce rivals Atletico Madrid 3-0 in the first leg of Champion League semi-final. While it remains steady on second position in La Liga. But, if Real does manage to grab both the titles, there is a trick up Barcelona’s sleeve to take the limelight away from Madrid.
Spanish outlet Don Balon claims that Barcelona plans to ruin Real Madrid’s celebrations if they win both leagues. They will be using Lionel Messi to kill the buzz surrounding Real Madrid double win. The Argentine international’s current deal expires next summer but he is widely expected to commit his future to F C Barcelona.
Rumour has it that Lionel Messi has supposedly agreed to extend his contract at Camp Nou till 2022. So, if Real does win both the trophies then Barcelona will make Messi’s contract extension public immediately after Real registers the win. But if Barcelona wins then the same announcement will be made an extra bonus for his fans worldwide.
It seems like all the strategies are in place, all that is left is to wait for the results of all matches played by both these Spanish teams. Real Madrid is to play Granada next while Barcelona will play Villareal at Camp Nou.
