Barça-Real Madrid: el Clásico will close out 2019

NEWS | 29/12/2019 | Edu Bueno

The league leaders head to the Palau for the final game of the year (6.30pm CET)
After 84 games and 68 victories, el Clásico will see out a record year for Real Madrid both in terms of games (85 inclduding today) and wins (68). Top of the league with one more win than Barça, Laso and his team want to stay undefeated against the Catalan team this season, after they beat them in the Super Cup final and in the Euroleague. Carroll will be available; Llull and Reyes are both out.
Real Madrid are top of the league but in the Euroleague they take on an opponent in fine form. Both teams have December 8 of their 9 games played this December. After playing at OAKA, where they played a spectacular game, the madridistas now go to the Palau, one of the toughest courts in Europe where only Unicaja managed to win, two game days ago.

Real Madrid have won the two Clásicos this season: in the final of the Super Cup and in the Euroleague.

On the court, the best offense will face off against the best defense. Barça averages 91.7 points and Madrid, 87. But the Whites concede 74.4, almost 10 points fewer than Barça (83.7). Those stats will be key. The league leaders need to defend as they have in recent games (Betis, 64 points conceded; Andorra 60; Baskonia 55; Panathinaikos, 75) to stop a tough Barcelona side. In the last two Clásicos (89-79 and 86-76), Real Madrid won by the same difference (+10), and Laso's team were better on the rebound. They are one of the best in the league in that aspect.

Tavares factor
The Cape Verde born center is a vital player. He is in great form. He has two double doubles in a row (against Andorra and Panathinaikos). Tonight, he and the other madridista centers will face the likes of Mirotic, Davies and Tomic. In terms of the back court, the Whites are better on the three and two-point shots than Pesic's side. This is set to be a thrilling end to 2019.
