For the first time since 2007 club football's arguably the biggest game will not feature either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo yet Sunday's Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid will be as feisty as ever with plenty riding on it. The team went winless in five consecutive games, losing four of them. Since some of the best players of the world often end up signing for either Real Madrid or Barcelona, the neutrals get to see these stars battling it out against each on the pitch.

Baptista was the match victor on that occasion in a 1-0 win at Camp Nou and the Brazilian says there is life after Ronaldo for Real.

Back to when Ronaldinho, Deco and Yaya Toure were running the show for Barcelona, Robinho, Raul and Ruud Van Nistelrooy led the line for Real Madrid and Sergio Ramos was still a right-back.

Barcelona coach Ernestro Valverde refused to give away his plans to cover for the loss of the injured Lionel Messi when his side face Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday. And we want to bring some joy to our fans, and this is the ideal game for that.

The two put 79 runs for the second wicket and it seemed as if India may be cruising towards a second win in the series. The two wicket-keepers in the two T20 squads announced Friday are Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik .


The Argentinean has been in scintillating form this season, scoring seven and laying on another five goals in Spain's top flight, while also hitting five in the Champions League.

Perhaps most alarming for Madrid, however, is that Ronaldo accounted for 38 per cent of the goals they scored against Barcelona during his time at the club.

National Guard troops can perform those same functions, so it was not immediately clear why active-duty forces were sought. Those troops are under the control of state governors and are limited to support roles such as providing surveillance.


Luis Suarez could sit out the game against Inter.

"We don't focus too much on [stories that Madrid are in crisis]", Valverde said.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane's last El Clasico ended in a 2-2 draw with Gareth Bale grabbing the spotlight with a sublime finish.

"I'm looking at several options, several players who can play in that position or we could change the system". I am convinced about what we are doing and we are thinking about preparing for Sunday's game, which is very important and one for which we have great ambition.
