Well boyz and girls of the Madrid forumn it seems the moment has arrived to see how our team has progressed thus far, I know we possess the team to get the jobe done however those small details are what will make or break the match for us confidence and concentration are key in the first 30min and will most likely dictate how the match will go for us.

Hala Madrid!!!
http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11835/9531833/el-clasico-real-madrid-boss-carlo-ancelotti-plans-surprise-for-worlds-best-game

CR7 at striker maybe
Nope, Bale starting hahaha
Tomorrow whichever team wins footytube is going to erupt into hell. Brothers against brothers, friends against friends, it'll be a free for all. I expect a few bans.

On a serious note its gonna be a heck of a game. I still don't have a clear idea of our lineup, there could be a surprise in almost every area of the pitch.

Barca have the wild card in Suarez though, and to be honest I'm not 100% confident for the game. Ronaldo in hot form will score, and Benzema too. Something tells me Kroos is getting his big goal.

Hala Madrid!
As long as we're allowed to finish the game with 11 men on the field I'll be cool.
+2
As long as you play by the rules, you won't need to worry about that.

as long as neymar doesn't go swimming, we got nothing to worry about

Team News:
Real Madrid

-Karim Benzema showed he has returned to full fitness after a stunning midweek display against Liverpool.
-Gareth Bale is out with a thigh injury.

Barcelona
-Luis Suarez has finally served his suspension from all competitive football and is set to make his debut for Barcelona.
-New signing Thomas Vermaelen suffered a relapse of his hamstring injury earlier this month is still out.

Prediction:
Real Madrid 3-2 Barcelona
So why does Madrid have a day less to prepare for El Clasico? So we can have an extra day to prepare the Copa del rey match versus 3rd division Cornella next Wednesday.

That makes sense.
To be honest we are at less than 100% of our capacity as far as a team but we have done very well after the rough patch at the beginning of the season.

We arent perfectly prepared for tomorrow but I am confident none the less. Also we play at home.
It's been like this almost every year. Always one less day to prepare for a match against Barcelona. Just to save the trouble for some of the fart heads that'll come and comment thinking that I'm blaming their beloved Barca, I'm not.. I'm digging at the ones who decided to come up with a schedule like this.
barcelona had one less day to prepare to play madrid when they came back from playing CL semi.
+4
If both teams are still in CL during 2nd clasico time , Barcelona will get one day extra to play . If I'm not wrong same happened in last few seasons too
@Dhockey

The fact you have to go back 3 seasons to find the last time it happened the other way around pretty much says everything.
+1
@slim,gotta feel for you.but what do,as long as,UEFA and Spanish fa ruled by us,it won't change:( it should have to end as they are clearly biased towards Catalonia..
We seriously can't let Messi score tomorrow...
if he does score one he will equal the record not beeat it right?
As long as we win I couldn't care less if Messi scores or not :)
+1
he will beat it by scoring a hat-trick ;)
+1
Even if Messi can't score, he can assist too. I'm more concerned of Iniesta rather than Messi or Neymar. Last time, he exposed Carvajal big time. Here's hoping to avoid that tomorrow, at least.
+2
Like I always said... despite my hatred for Barcelona, iniesta is the best midfielder I have seen after zidane.. at least during d last 7 yrs. He has that thing about him and his presence in the midfield..

But notwithstanding, I am quite scared of the unknown, Suarez... he is too much to be a wild card.

But what worries me most is bale's absence.. idk how it will work, but I sure hope we woop barca's ass..
+2
Like always, people is under estimating Neymar. Forget Messi and Iniesta, Neymar is who we need to watch out for...
I hope the Madrid players are of a likewise mindset, Realfan. Forgetting about Messi and Iniesta isn't the smartest thing to do when you face them in their prime.

If Neymar can draw defenders away from Messi who then scores or vice versa, both will have done a great job. Tomorrow's result will all depend on one or two players not playing well. If Neymar won't do well, Messi won't be able to exploit the space. If Isco or Modric aren't alert, Ronaldo won't be able to latch on their passes. So the truth is you don't just need to watch out for any single player, but the lot of them. This clásico isn't just the battle of Ronaldo and Messi, Neymar or Iniesta. It's 22 of the absolute best players in the world relying on their teammates to be great to allow themselves to be great.

vine.co/v/hXd222HYl5e

what a beauty

Recent developments all indicate that Ramos and Pepe will start tomorrow. Ramos has supposedly recovered completely and Pepe is back to full speed.

Am I the only one who thinks Varane sould start in Clasico before Pepe and Ramos? Actually Ramos should be the third,last,option to start,judging from current form. I really don't want to watch Ramos play in midfield the whole game,while leaving Pepe alone to cover the whole defense. Never did i see a defender play better aginst Barca,and especially Messi, then Varane. I never tought i say this,and I really don't want anything bad for him,but im hopping that Ramos will not be fit to start.
+1
You have millions of fellow believers who also share the same thought. Varane should be automatic!!
+1
Against Barcelona what will surely be needed is calm and pace in defense and neither Ramos or Pepe has that over Varane. Against the likes of Messi,Neymar and Suarez we will get exposed if Carlo plays R & P at the back.
varane will play... but not start.

i actually will prefer a pepe and varane partnership, but ramos missing el classico while fit will; the newspapers and media will start with the whole politics and rumours..

either way, the biggest absentee will be Bale, his pace, strength and abilities will be missed greatly.. no one can cover that position properly like he does
When Carlo was asked about Pepe & Ramos:

"Which centre-backs will you field against Barça?

Pepe is recovering from a knock. One of them will be Ramos. If Pepe recovers in time, he’ll play."

"Pepe? “He’s in good shape, just like Ramos. He’s recovered from injury and think both may play”."

But look no further, Carlo is being mysterious again saying there will be a surprise in the lineup:

"I like surprises. There may be one in tomorrow’s starting line-up"

Who could it be? Varane? Isco? Bale? or maybe Sami?
+1
Ramos just has a huge name,especially after his heroics in the CL. Looks like no matter how good Varane really is,he'll have to battle Pepe or wait till age caches up with him. If you take away the names,the youngest of our 3 CB is the best.
I honestly dont know what the heck the lineup will be. Khedira or ramos in midfield?

Will we see varane and pepe and ramos in the starting 11? Statistically starting ramos is a bad idea. But he is such a wild card.

It is true we are going to really miss bale. Honestly i think we arent exactly ready for this game.

Injuries absences and a sorted and balanced midfield is what we must overcome to be ready. I have much faith in carlo and our players though and high hopes for tomorrow!

Vamos Madrid
Play Ramos as LB, Marcelo as LW and Ronaldo as ST.

:D
That might work with the way Marcelo has been playing haha. Back line of Ramos varane pepe carvajal James on the right with Modric kroos and Benz up top
great to see... Despite Cristiano being an ex united player for 6 years, he was applauded by the liverpool supporters when he was being subbed in Anfield

That was really nice of Liverpool fans at that game. The guy is an Ex United player, scored a goal against them and they applauded him. So much Respect!
+2
I have to say I was abit touched the way the Liverpool fans at Anfield behaved.

Giving ovations to the Real Madrid players as they're being subbed off. Staying til the end then giving they're own team an ovation even after a 0-3.

We have to admit at the Bernabeu we're abit behind them in them in that regard.
Anfield is always classy and terrific..
+1
Ronaldo is different..It's like when Old trafford cheered for Ronaldo de lima. Even the Emirates wouldn't dare boo whim when his being subbed off..in fact they would celebrate the relief of him not completing the full 90
our supporters were actually excellent in Anfield though... there were times we were the only ones making noise in the stadium
Is it true that only Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have scored more goals than Karim Benzema in 2014?
+7
It must not be true.you know he is the link man ;)
+5
if that is not sarcasm (i would except considering ur love for the dude)
...please post a link to prove it. that will be really funny

Hmm so are we counting both league and country? What about friendlies?
