Real Madrid vs Barcelona 2011: Will A 1-0 Home Win Be Enough For Madrid Against Barca?

April 27, 2011 By Isaac Asante
Real Madrid vs Barcelona is the fixture of 2011’s third Clasico. Live Soccer TV asks if another 1-0 win for Real will be enough to silence Barca ahead of the Champions League clash’s return leg.

Madrid narrowly edged past La Liga leaders on April 20 in the Copa del Rey 2011 final through a 1-0 victory on extra time. Cristiano Ronaldo was the scorer of Los Blancos’ winner, and the winger’s efforts just seemed to be enough to punish the 2009 Spanish Cup champions—who had wasted decent opportunities earlier on in the encounter. The Castellans were eventually rewarded with the trophy at the Mestalla Stadium, and that night marked the return of the Galacticos to glory, as they clinched their very first major title since 2008.

Indubitably, Real Madrid deserve credit for their hard work against a side that rarely stumbles on big occasions, but doing better in the next Clasico could be compulsory. Such an idea is especially enforced in view of Barcelona’s unbreakable desires to prove themselves in a bigger competition, and although Jose Mourinho has had success in Europe before, there is still a need to target an even better fight.

Understandably, fiercer attempts against a fully energized Barcelona team might not clinch them an overwhelming result; however, scoring a single goal and keeping a clean sheet could be enough to secure them a vital advantage in the first leg of their 2011/2011 Champions League semifinals encounter. The question now rising is: Will a 1-0 triumph in the imminent Real Madrid vs Barcelona match be sufficient for Jose Mourinho to gain firm control over the Blaugrana?

Obviously, what truly matters is every big football game is not the scoreboard’s inscription, but rather, the feelings within the performers on the field. With the first leg of El Clasico set to be played at the Santiago Bernabeu, it is undeniable that Real have great chances of dictating the play and giving Pep Guardiola his second consecutive defeat in the famous Spanish derby’s history.

A pleasing 1-0 win would unavoidably have a remarkable negative impact on the psychology of Barcelona’s soldiers, at the delight of the new Copa del Rey champions. The main concern of the Madridistas in that case would consequently be the fear of suffering the highest level of Barcelona’s resentment at the Camp Nou afterward. It would hence be a case of constancy from Real’s prospect, while it would be a matter of life and death from the standpoint of Barcelona fans.

Real Madrid’s last match in La Liga ended on a positive note, as they netted six goals past Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium—though they conceded three. In spite of the high number of goals scored by Los Merengues on Saturday evening, there are fewer extractable positives than one could expect, considering that their defense was nothing less than vulnerable.

Keeping the efficiency they profited from in the first half and tightening their backline is what they are advised to do in Wednesday’s Clasico, in order to survive. As a matter of fact, surviving should not even be their aim… Imposing themselves is seemingly their sole alternative in a situation where delicacy is at the heart of their challenge.

Should the Real Madrid vs Barcelona game end with a 1-0 result in favour of the hosts, then followers of Los Blancos will need to be aware of the hugeness of their advantage. More precisely, it will mean two things. Not only will it stamp Madrid’s solid authority over their archrivals, but also will it confirm their capability to excel when they are needed to, at last.
