So, from this point of view you can think that Real Madrid have a psychological edge over their arch rival Barcelona.

Moreover, Barcelona could not show much consistence this season so far in Spanish La Liga. They have lost four matches so far in La Liga this season. On the other hand, Real Madrid has lost only two matches this season in La Liga. Their players have performed regularly. Actually, Barcelona’s key players like Ronaldinho are now in off form. Some injury problems also contributed their inconsistent performance this season. Thierry Henry and Samuel Eto’o were also out of form. Henry faced a back injury during the season.

The good news for Real Madrid is that Samuel Eto’o has got his form back and their new recruit Thierry Henry has got the clearance from the doctors to be available for this match. However, Ronaldinho is not yet confirmed to make it to the first line up of Barcelona against Real Madrid.

However, he has not yet been ruled out of the final line up of this match. Real Madrid fans can cheer on as they have some good news ahead of the Barcelona match. Two inform forwards- Raul and Ruud van Nistelrooy are in their prime form. Midfielder Julio Baptista has also got his form back and expected to be in the starting team of Bernard Schuster.

However, statistics and strength do not come in the way when it comes to a Barcelona vs Real Madrid match. Fans just forget everything and want to see their teams winning the match.
