The meeting between Real Madrid and Barcelona will be the main match of the year for Spain. This opinion on Friday, April 9, in an interview with REN TV, was expressed by the ex-player of the Russian national team Vladislav Radimov.
According to him, the upcoming match will attract special attention from the fans: both teams have the largest audience of fans in the world.
Speaking about Lionel Messi as a symbol of Barcelona, the expert noted that the athlete is still in good shape.
“The goals, Messi’s performance, the fact that he is Barcelona’s leader speak for themselves. He is on the list of the top scorers and passer of the championship. Messi is still fine. I think he will prove it in the next el-clasico, ”Radimov said.
At the same time, the game of Real Madrid without the famous leader of the “creamy” Cristiano Ronaldo, who is currently playing for the Italian “Juventus”, will not lose in entertainment, the footballer said.
“The confrontation between Real Madrid and Barcelona is over 100 years old. Messi and Ronaldo have not always competed, and these matches have always attracted increased interest. Without Messi and Ronaldo, el-clasico will remain at the same level for us, it will always attract attention, ”Radimov emphasized.
He is also convinced that the absence of defenders Sergio Ramos and Rafael Varane will not affect Real Madrid’s performance. The ex-footballer of the Russian national team recalled that the team won a victory over Liverpool on April 6, when the two indicated players were not included in the squad.
The match “Real” – “Barcelona” will be held on Saturday, April 10. It will be broadcast on the REN TV channel and on the ren.tv website. The broadcast will start at 21:50 Moscow time.
REN TV will be the only federal channel to broadcast another episode of the confrontation between the two cult clubs. Vladimir Stognienko and Alexander Kuzmak will comment on the meeting.
