Barcelona will be hosting their arch-rivals Real Madrid on Sunday May 6 at the Camp Nou stadium, in a match that may appear to be insignificant despite the pride that has been at stake over the years between the two sides.
Madrid understands that pride is at stake, but they will be careful bearing in mind that they have noting to gain either if they win or lose but will want to be focused ahead of their champions league final on May 26 against Liverpool.
Barcelona already wrapped up the league last season after win over Deportivo and also beat Sevilla earlier to win the Copa del Rey cup leaving Madrid with no major silverware in Spain to compete for.
But Madrid who now see the Champions League as their major source of silverware this season will want to be focused ahead of their meeting with Liverpool and show less attention to the El classico.
Naturally, Barcelona is not a team that plays to injure their opponents, hence they may not be a threat to Los Blancos, and that could also propel Madrid to come out and play for winning.
