Zidane defends decision not to form guard of honour for Barcelona

Zidane defends decision not to form guard of honour for Barcelona

"No, not at all", said the Real Madrid boss on Saturday, previewing the trip to Camp Nou. But, El Clasico is one game that will see both sides give their all to get a win, at any cost.

In 14 appearances for Real at the Nou Camp, Ronaldo has scored 11 times.

This Clasico tie is mainly about bragging rights, with the title already clinched and Zidane's men with their sights set firmly on their European quest once again. Goals have been hard to come by for the Frenchman, who hasn't been sharp at all. It hasn't been a good season in LaLiga; thats true. Suarez then netted a second before Iniesta was withdrawn to unexpected applause from the home fans.

Tennis star Rafael Nadal is a regular Bernabeu visitor and honourary Madrid club member, despite his uncle Miguel Angel Nadal winning five LaLiga titles playing for Barca in the 1990s. Elsewhere, Sevilla will play their first match under their caretaker coach Joaquin Caparros on Friday against Real Sociedad. At the time, Barcelona said it wouldn't do it because the club only gives guards of honour when it plays in the same competition as the opponent. "In the end, the best one wins", Valverde said. Bragging rights between these two fanbases are probably considered the most important outside of local derbies and neither team can afford defeat. Unfortunately they were on the losing side. This could also be the legendary Andres Iniesta's last El Clasico, as the 33-year old announced that he is to end his glittering stint with the Blaugrana.

"After the Club World Cup they didn't want to do it for us", Zidane told a news conference.

On Sergio Ramos: "Sergio is our leader, our captain". Might that add fuel to the fire? He's an example of commitment who motivates everyone around him.

One of the funniest moments in Premier League history. Barcelona have surely been the more clinical of the two teams over the league season.

"I am not going to think about [the Champions League final], as if I did we would not even play tomorrow. It would be more exciting if we were closer in the standings, but for me it's fine like this". Expect vast flags in English as protestors try to take advantage of the global television audience.

Raphael Varane had been an injury doubt heading into the weekend after being forced to sit out training during the week due to a calf injury.

"The coach has added so much to us tactically and defensively - we are much stronger and the results prove it", Digne said.
