A notable absentee for the Clasico!

This Sunday evening (9 p.m.), FC Barcelona receives Real Madrid at Camp Nou for a decisive shock in the race for the title of champion of Spain. Beyond the sporting aspect, this meeting will take place in a very particular context…

Camp Nou Stadium, Barca FC Barcelona

For the Merengues, this may be the last chance match. Any other result than a victory would in effect reduce Madrid’s title hopes to almost nothing. At the dawn of this clash, the Catalans are indeed leading the Kingdom of Spain with nine points ahead of their historic rival. If they pocket the three points, the Blaugranas will almost put an end to the suspense.

Despite this rather favorable context, FC Barcelona will nevertheless approach this prestigious opposition with a certain pressure. As we have regularly told you over the past few weeks on Top Mercato, the now famous Negreira affair continues to discredit Barça. Accused of attempting to bribe a former referee, the Spanish team is facing a lot of criticism and should even have to explain themselves to the courts of the country.

Florentino Perez stays in Madrid for El Clasico

While waiting for all the light to be shed on this affair, several La Liga clubs did not hesitate to seize this opportunity to attack the Catalan giant head-on. Real Madrid notably rushed into the breach to undermine their eternal national rival.

Sign of the great tension that reigns among our neighbors, Florentino Perez would have decided not to go to Camp Nou to attend the meeting of his proteges. According to information from brandof which Real France is also echoed, the president of the Casa Blanca would like in particular to avoid receiving a welcome announced as very hostile from the Catalan public. In recent days, the Spanish daily had already announced that the traditional pre-match lunch between representatives of the two clubs would not take place.
