Champions League: Watch Real Madrid vs Barcelona Live Online (Free Live Stream)
Real Madrid vs Barcelona Live Stream: All roads lead to Spain as FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, arguably the two best football clubs in the world, lock horns at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (April 27) for the fourth of five El Clasico this season with a place in the UEFA Champions League final at stake.
In 211 previous meetings between the teams, Real grabbed 86 wins, the Blaugrana notched 82, and forty-three games has ended in draw. This term, the spoils are shared: a 5-0 victory to Barca, a 1-1 stalemate at the Bernabeu, and last week in Valencia, Jose Mourinho’s men beat the Catalans 1-0 to claim the Copa del Rey, thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo‘s breakthrough goal in extra time. It was the Special One’s first silverware as Los Blancos boss, and he hopes to get his side’s 10th European title, as well as become the first ever manager to win the Champions League with three different clubs.
Andres Iniesta will miss tonight’s game because of a leg injury. The 26-year-old Barca midfielder was injured Saturday in their 2-0 triumph over Osasuna, and was only able to train briefly yesterday. Captain Carlos Puyol, on the other hand, has recovered from a calf problem and Gabriel Milito is also fit again but Maxwell is out with a groin strain. Real will be without Ricardo Carvalho due to suspension, while the injured Sami Khedira is set to be replaced by Lassana Diarra.
The second leg is on May 3 at Camp Nou with the winners of the tie playing Premier League side Manchester United or German outfit Schalke in the final at Wembley on May 28.
UPDATE: Lionel Messi scored two late goals as the Blaugrana took a big step towards the Champions League final with a 2-0 first-leg victory over Real. Messi’s double at the Bernabeu moved him on to 11 in the competition this season.
