Real Madrid’s midfielders struggled to keep up with the collective teamwork of Pep Guardiola’s Blaugranas. Barcelona dominated the game -except for the last 20 minutes, Barcelona had a 80% possession of the ball- and Real Madrid was saved only thanks to David Villa’s poor form.
Jose Mourinho’s Madrid Clasico scheme had relative success against La Liga leaders Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu last Saturday. Sami Khedira, Xabi Alonso and Pepe kept Lio Messi and company under control, though the speed of the Argentinean and Spanish international Pedro was a constant headache for Blanco’s defenders.
Perhaps los Blancos need a new approach to defeat Barcelona. Angel Di Maria and Cristiano Ronaldo were forced to assist with the defense often times during the last El Clasico, isolating either Karim Benzema or Emmanuel Adebayor, who were rendered harmless close to the Blaugrana area.
Gonzalo Higuain could also make it into the Copa Del Rey 2011 Final starting eleven, if Mourinho decides to sacrifice power to boost the speed and versatility on the attack.
German international Mesut Ozil was the most unbalancing player in the second half, harmonizing Real Madrid’s attack with great success. The first title of the year is at stake, who’ll be lifting the Copa Del Rey 2011 on Wednesday night?
Barcelona’s goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto has guarded Cule’s post throughout the whole 2010-2011 Copa Del Rey competition, but this might not be the only defensive modification on Pep Guardiola’s scheme.
