Ex-Real Madrid midfielder, Mutiu Adepoju has come out to say that the Blancos and Barcelona have a chance to win the El Clasico today.
He recently revealed that form and past results will surely be thrown out the window ahead of the crunch clash.
According to him, even if Real Madrid have lost their last two games, El Clasico is always a different ball game altogether.
He added that Zidane’s job will be under pressure so Real Madrid must get a positive result from the game.
His words, “El Clasico is another game entirely and the form of both teams doesn’t matter,”
“It is unfortunate that Real Madrid lost their last two games but El Clasico is always a keenly contested match.
“Although Barcelona won their Champions League match during the week, they lost their last league game too so it does not matter. It does not matter who is in winning form.”
On Zidane, “He shouldn’t be [under pressure] but looking at the way things are at the moment with the kind of board at Real Madrid, even at Barcelona if you lose games consecutively, there would be questions and there might be pressure.”
“It could be that Zidane’s job will be under pressure with this game.
“Every game is a new opportunity, and this kind of game is one that can revive the team. If they win it, it will down the tension and make people believe in them. Definitely, if they win, the pressure will be reduced.”
