El Clasico is one of the most famous fixtures in the football world. This is the first time from ten past years; neither Messi nor Ronaldo will play. Two large football icons will absent this year because of two different reasons. Cristiano Ronaldo has departed from his team Real Madrid after 9 years and now he joined Juventus. While Lionel Messi has broken his arm in the final victory against Sevilla last weekend.
The history of those two great players in El Clasico is that Messi is the fixture first scorer (26 goals) and assister (14) and Ronaldo carries the record of the most consecutive Clasico with a goal (six games in 2012). Actually, Real Madrid has a silly problem due to the absence of Ronaldo and this was obviously clear in the last games when they scored only one time in the latest four games at the weekend.
Barcelona has the same trouble as a result of Messi absence, Ernesto Valverde the boss said that a game without Messi is exactly like a mission impossible and he added that he really has no idea what can be a compensate for the loss of Messi. Those brilliant stars have left their teams in big troubles.
