Apparently, Marc-André ter Stegen has improved massively under Xavi Hernández, having seen his performance against Mallorca. With that being said, the German goalkeeper will be on the goalpost against Carlo Ancelloti’s men, because he has the ability and capability to keep a clean sheet. 


Of course, Barcelona is unbeaten in their last two fixtures in 2022, as their defensive line is now composed and balanced. Having said that, Jordi Alba will play as a left-back, Eric Garcia and Ronald Araujo as center-backs, and Dani Alves as a right-back. Obviously, this defensive setup is equipped enough to accommodate Real Madrid’s pressure, especially with Dani Alves and Jordi Alba due to their experience. 


In all honesty, Barcelona has many options in the midfield, as they have a mix of young and experienced players playing in the midfield position. With that being said, Sergio Busquets will play as a defensive midfielder, while Pedri González and Pablo Gavi dazzle as box-to-box and deep-lying midfielders.

Without being sentimental, the Bluagranas captain is improving every day, as regards his performance on Wednesday. So, he will dazzle defensively to control the midfield, and the two Spanish youngsters will move forward to create chances.

As regards Ferran Torres’ versatility and potential, he will play as a central forward while Ansu Fati plays from the left-wing and Ousmane Dembélé from the right-wing. Of course, Memphis Depay may not start against Real Madrid next week, so this could be Xavi Hernández’s possible front-three at Fahd Stadium in Riyadh Saudi Arabia. With this frontline, the Catalans have enough reinforcements to unbalance Carlo Ancelloti’s men at the back.
