Pique Claims That the Next El Clasico Will Have ‘No Favourites’

Pique Claims That the Next El Clasico Will Have ‘No Favourites’

There are no clear winners heading into Clásico, the football match between Real Madrid and Barcelona, according to Gerard Pique. For this weekend’s La Liga classic, Pique claims that the next El Clasico will have ‘no favourites’, Barca or Real.

In the first El Clásico of the season, Barcelona and Real Madrid renew their rivalry at Camp Nou on Sunday.

A lot, all bad (the football news), has happened at Barcelona during the summer and this season.

So, one could be forgiven for thinking Real Madrid are clear favourites going into the game.

The sensations around Camp Nou have indeed failed to be wonderful this season.

Whether it’s because of Lionel Messi’s departure, the financial situation, or the constant pressure on Ronald Koeman, they’re performing poorly.

The league standings, though, tell a different story, with the two teams currently having just two points separating them.

Besides the point difference, going into this game, Pique believes form doesn’t matter much in a Clásico, in any event.

“In a Clásico, you come in as equals, there are no favourites,” he said in his pre-match press conference according to the Daily Mail.

“The Clásico is totally separate from the dynamics. We have had some moments of crisis, but we are recovering.

“We both arrive with quite similar dynamics.”

Pique also discussed his feelings regarding his second stint at Camp Nou, which has lasted more than 13 years.

“It’s certain that with age when you have lived everything, you look a little for stability,” he added.

“I am very happy, with my family and with the team.

“I keep the ‘rebel’ Gerard, but I am enjoying. There is little left and I want to enjoy it.”
