Going into this match, Barca is two points behind Los Blancos, as Real Madrid remains on top of the league. A pair of losses have hurt Barcelona, but they have been bitten heavily by the injury bug, according to Bleacher Report.
Messi was out for a month, and Andres Iniesta, 32, is still riding the bench. Not to mention, center backs Umtiti, 23, and Jeremy Mathieu, 33, are sidelined (Umtiti has a hamstring while Jeremy is dealing with a calf injury.)
It doesn’t help that Luis Suarez, 29, is suspended due to accumulating too many penalties, but some suspect he intentionally fouled out of this game with Malaga so he can play in El Classico. He had picked up four yellow cards prior to the match with Sevilla on Nov. 6, per Soccer Laduma. With five minutes left to go, he seemed to overreact with the ref, earning him a fifth yellow card.
“I start with a clean slate ahead of games away against Real Sociedad and versus Real Madrid,” he said. “The yellow card was actually a good thing.” Hmmmm. Very suspicious. Considering Malaga, currently in 10th place, aren’t expected to pose a major threat, it seems very fortunate for Luis to sit this game out. Hmm indeed.
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Barcelona will win La Liga this season or will Real Madrid reign supreme?
