Real Madrid Vs Barcelona: Talking Tactics
Carlo Ancelotti will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and could ask his players to dominate the ball and engineer some decent chances to win this cup final.
Xavi will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could instruct his men to keep things solid at the back and try to cause a few problems for the opposition defenders.
Lucas Vazquez and Eder Militao will be sidelined for this game due to injuries. Eduardo Camavinga is also a major doubt for this game and is expected to be in Real Madrid’s squad this weekend.
