Two of the best Italian sides are found in what should be a closely fighting game, in which, I think, one goal will be solved, the corresponding final last season was a draw, so don’t expect many goals
Could you get anymore different with Everton? One minute they are ripping apart Arsenal and beating West Ham away, then all of a sudden, against a Fulham side that have not scored two goals in a game since day one, and they cannot keep a clean sheet against them. It is a bad attitude there - you cannot look at the manager, you have to look at the players.
Man United are a million miles off. They need to win the game or they are out of the Champions League, but I don't think they will get it - they are well short at the moment. Some of their results have been very fortunate. For me, the unbeaten run was covering over the cracks.
Barca has such an envious record against Real at this venue. For more than the last 20 years, they have maintained a perfect 100% winning record at the Camp Nou. That’s a run of 19 wins in a row. Moreover, 15 of these 19 matches saw Barca scoring two or more goals, while Real failed to score in 11 of their 19 trips here.
Going on, Barca will consider this game as easy three points, which will reduce their target for the season to just six more on the board. With the team in the hunt for the treble, it’d be good if they could be in a relaxed sense of mind, and an early league title would be perfect for it.
Moreover, Barca was unbeaten in 21 of their last 23 home ties, whereas Real was winless in 10 of their last 11. Expect a dominating win for the Blaugrana.
