Day rich in emotions and sensations for fans of round ball. While Manchester United and Liverpool will cross swords at Old Trafford on behalf of the 9th day of the Premier League (5.30 p.m.), Olympique de Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain will offer us the first Classic of the season in the season. ‘Hexagon (8:45 p.m., 11th day of Ligue 1). But that’s not all. In Spain, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid will also do battle in the afternoon (4:15 p.m., 10th day of La Liga) at Camp Nou! A shock always eagerly awaited around the world, especially this year.
With a complicated financial situation and a Ronald Koeman threatened before the international break in October, Barça will have a golden opportunity to send a message in case of victory against the enemy from Madrid. Seventh two points behind their opponents of the day, the Blaugranas also have the opportunity to overtake them and to chain a third victory in a row in all competitions in one week. Victorious 5-0 this week in the Champions League, the Merengues remain on two unsuccessful matches in La Liga despite their third place. A reaction in the league is therefore expected on the Madrid side.
Ronald Koeman to winger Dest
To know the victory again this week, Ronald Koeman should start with a 4-3-3 with Ter Stegen necessarily in the cages. Retaining the defense, Mingueza will be preferred to Sergi Roberto on the right side, with Eric Garcia, Piqué and Jordi Alba who will be aligned at his side. Just ahead, Busquets will start at the sentry post with Frenkie de Jong and the nugget Gavi a cut above. Finally, on the offensive side, the Dutch technician will count on Dest, Depay and Ansu Fati, who could start at the forefront with the former Lyonnais on the left.
In the Madrid ranks, Carlo Ancelotti could opt for the same tactical scheme with the Belgian Courtois in the goal. For the position of right side, Nacho and Vazquez are in the balance but the first city will normally start this Clasico. Militao, Alaba and Ferland Mendy will be the other defenders of Casa Blanca. Modric, Casemiro and Kroos will normally compose the midfield. And in front, the French striker Benzema will obviously be there with Vinicius Jr on his left and Rodrygo on the right. Make way for the show!
