Real Madrid’s Title Hopes on the Line in El Clasico Clash with Barcelona



Real Madrid facing do-or-die situation

It could be do or die for reigning La Liga champions Real Madrid when they visit Camp Nou for the latest edition of El Clasico against Barcelona. Los Blancos (17-5-3) are nine points behind Barcelona (21-2-2) in the La Liga table entering the weekend. Anything short of a victory could dash their hopes of defending their 2021-22 title, the 35th in club history. Barcelona are in a strong position to claim a 27th title this year after finishing 13 points back last season. This is the fourth meeting between the teams since October, with the first leg of El Clasico in La Liga play ending in a 3-1 Real Madrid victory at the Bernabeu last fall. Barcelona have won two domestic cup meetings by a combined 4-1 score since then.
