La Liga: Barcelona to overturn Clasico woes; Real Madrid eye momentum


Barcelona: After an underwhelming 2-1 loss against Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid, Barcelona would look forward to recovering as they face Rayo Vallecano in an away match. Elsewhere, regaining the top spot in the league table with the Clasico win, Real Madrid will look to stay at the number one.

With most of their important players like Ousmane Dembelé, Pedri Gonzalez, and Ronald Araujo sidelined with injury, Barcelona had one of the most disappointing performances this season except for the 90+6′ goal from Sergio Aguero. They would want to leave behind the loss and look ahead to bounce back to winning ways as they take on Rayo Vallecano on October 27.

While soaring high from their fourth consecutive Clasico win Real Madrid would want to hold on to their top spot as they take on Osasuna at Santiago Bernabeu. Eden Hazard, whose absence from Clasico was raising questions would not be present here in as well after Ancelotti cleared out the reason for the Belgian’s absence is not injury rather the availability of better players.

The same matchday will see Sevilla taking on Mallorca and Real Betis taking on Valencia CF. Atlético Madrid will be playing Levante the next day after a very late secured draw Sunday, with a Luis Suarez brace and a 3-2 loss at the hands of Liverpool.
