WORDS BEFORE THE MATCH
Javi Hernandez, Barcelona head coach:
- Real Madrid's game pattern has changed compared to last year. Vinicius and Rodrigo are getting rid of custody very easily. This is something we need to pay attention to. We have Cancelo to stop Vinicius. But we have several alternatives in this position. We have to make a decision. This game means a lot to us. A victory would give us a boost in morale and confidence, and we would overtake a direct competitor.
Carlo Ancelotti, head coach of Real Madrid:
- Bellingham will play because he's fine, he's recovered. I don't have to explain to him what the El Clasico is, everyone knows that. This is a world-class match. I don't know what lineup Barcelona will have. For me, the most important thing is Bellingham's absolute readiness. We look only at ourselves.
