Just 48 hours prior to the El Clasico, Barca first-team captain Iniesta spoke to the press about the upcoming fixture. Not only does he know what it feels like to win there but also how hard it is to do so.
When asked what his game plan was, he replied, “We need to be ourselves. We need to try to be the protagonists. We need to dominate the possession and not just create goalscoring chances but take them too. I hope it’ll be a great game, and also that it ends with a great result for us!”
Of course, even though Barca already have a three-point lead over their eternal rivals, Iniesta was more concerned about the first team’s form during the course of this season.
He also expressed that they weren’t taking Real Madrid for granted since they had a solid defense while their players up front were more than capable of scoring a number of goals. In fact, he clearly stated that Madrid have world class players who are very dangerous when playing home games.
When asked what it felt like to win at the Bernabeu, he responded that it is a huge boost winning there and this is because since everyone is watching the game, it definitely has a big impact on the player too.
As for his favorite win over Madrid in recent times, he mentioned both the 6-2 and the 3-0 victory almost ten years ago and where Ronaldinho received a standing ovation.
Finally, and in regard to Messi, he said that from training, it looks positive. However, it also depended on how he is feeling as it will indicate whether he plays from the start or not.
