Barcelona and Real Madrid meet this Sunday (9:00 p.m. Movistar LaLiga) in a new edition of the classic, the fourth of this season.

The azulgranas, who lead the whites by nine points in the championship, have before them the great opportunity to sentence the League against their eternal rival.

Xavi's team has defeated Ancelotti's in their last two clashes (Super Cup final and Copa del Rey semifinal first leg) but they have not beaten Madrid at the Camp Nou since 2018. The match is marked by extra-sports issues .


Negreira case

It has shaken relations between the two clubs and Florentino Pérez will not be in the Camp Nou box so as not to increase the tension.

Alaba is the most sensitive loss in the white team, which comes from qualifying for the Champions League quarterfinals.

Ancelotti is betting on the same eleven as on Wednesday against Liverpool, with Camavinga accompanying Modric and Kroos in midfield.

At Barcelona, ​​Sergi Roberto is the main novelty in the team to replace Pedri in midfield, where he maintains four players.

the classic

When no one expected him at Barcelona, ​​Alejandro Balde

Juan I. Irigoyen

When nobody expected it, in Barcelona, ​​Alejandro Balde (19 years old) appeared.

In the last summer, the idea of ​​the football management of the Barca club, in harmony with the coaching staff, was for the youth squad player to carry out the pre-season with the first team and then his representative, the powerful Jorge Mendes, would seek accommodation for him away from the Camp Nou.

By then, Barça already had Marcos Alonso ready to compete with Jordi Alba on the left side.

It happened, however, that Balde captivated Xavi and company on the tour of the United States.

"Don't touch this kid," the coach asked the sports management.

"Because of his characteristics, he is the side of the future," they underline from the coaching staff.

And Jorge Mendes took note.

The Portuguese agent, who with Joan Laporta in the presidency increased his power at Barça,

Vinicius, in the Camp Nou volcano

David Alvarez

When Vinicius talks to his people about his lack of control in some games, frustrated with the referees, with some defenses, with rival fans, he remembers what happened to him one recent afternoon away from home.

Before starting, the referee warned him: if he did something, he would turn the public against him.

The people who work closely with the Brazilian always insist that he needs to find a way to better control his despair and not leave games.

They know what the opponents are trying to do by all means, as several defenses have publicly acknowledged.

Tonight he visits the Camp Nou, the most hostile of scenarios in the most thorny circumstances, with both clubs one step away from the courts for the Negreira case.

El Clásico defines hierarchies

Alfredo Relano

Rodney Marsh, an England international in the early 1970s when he played for Manchester City, then an unsuccessful coach and finally a television and radio presenter, left several famous phrases for being funny.

Among them is: “All a coach has to do is keep 11 players happy.

The 11 reserves.

The 11 starters already are because they are starters.

A valid thought, of course, for those years in which there was a clear line between starters and substitutes.

Years of invariable alignments, that those of "when then", as Threshold would say, we still recite.

Every time two, three or four of us who haven't seen each other get together for a long time, it's easy for us to start exchanging memory alignments like philatelics who show other philatelics their collection of old stamps.

A vital classic between Barcelona and Real Madrid for the luck of the League and the course of the Barça club

The classic arrives inflamed at the Camp Nou (9:00 p.m., Movistar).

the classic

Xavi Hernández: "I never felt that we won because of the referees"

Juan I. Irigoyen

Barcelona takes refuge in silence.

And it does not do so because there is no one in the club to speak, but because there is still no explanation that justifies the 7.3 million euros that the Catalan entity paid to the former referee José María Enríquez Negreira between 2001 and 2018 and under the leadership of four presidents (Joan Gaspart, Joan Laporta, Sandro Rosell and Josep Maria Bartomeu).

While Laporta has gone from a more defensive attitude – “They are promoting a reputational campaign against Barça”, he complained, from the outset – to a more belligerent one – “I want to confront all the scoundrels who are staining our shield”, he exposed before of the classic–, the public burden at Barça always falls on the coach.

He happened to Ronald Koeman with the Barçagate scandal and now it happens to Xavi Hernández.

“What the president says goes to mass.

I don't want to talk about that topic.

I focus on football ”, the Barça coach defended himself, from the outset, in the preview of the classic.

He could not.

As much as he tried, Xavi, a former Barcelona player (1998-2015), ended up talking about the Negreira Case.

Following the trail of the money from Barça to Negreira: "He asked me to go collect checks from the bank"

Antoni ended up becoming a linesman late and by chance.

He took the whistle in a party between company colleagues when the referee who was supposed to do it did not show up.

"I liked the feeling of authority," he explains at the age of 78 as he recalls his rise through the lower categories of Catalan football and how an already established referee, José María Enríquez Negreira, invited him to debut in a First Division match.

“It was a Malaga-Valencia.

The field was under construction and they threw a piece of dry cement at me, ”he recalls with a smile.

Florentino Pérez and Joan Laporta, during a board lunch.


Florentino Pérez will not be in the Camp Nou box

The president of Real Madrid, Florentino Pérez, will not attend this Sunday (9:00 p.m.) the LaLiga Santander classic that Barcelona and the white team will play at the Spotify Camp Nou, sources from the Barça club told EFE.

Florentino Pérez's decision not to go to the box at the Camp Nou comes "so as not to increase the tension" a week after Real Madrid announced that it will appear in the "procedure" of the Negreira case, "as soon as the judge opens it to the injured parties.

The Police believe that Bartomeu lied when declaring that he only knew Negreira by sight

jesus garcia bueno

Of the four Barça presidents who paid former referee José María Enríquez Negreira, only Josep Maria Bartomeu has so far given explanations to justice.

On February 13, Bartomeu declared that he was under investigation before the Prosecutor's Office, which then kept the investigation open for the 7.3 million euros that the Barça club paid Negreira between 2001 and 2018. In the case that a Barcelona court is now investigating , Bartomeu - who presided over the club between 2014 and 2020 - has the status of investigated, the same as Sandro Rosell (2011-2014).

The presidents of Barça who preceded them, Joan Gaspart and Joan Laporta, will be summoned as witnesses because the crimes that could be attributed to them (corruption in sport, unfair administration and documentary falsification) have already prescribed.
