Will Camavinga start in the playing XI against Barca?

The 20-year-old French man Eduardo Camavinga was one of Real Madrid's best players in the duel against Braga, matchday 3 of Group C of the 2023/2024 Champions League. Los Blancos won with a score of 2-1 when they visited Estadio Municipal de Braga which was not an easy game for the European giants. They were superior, but Braga was not without resistance.

This time Madrid took a two-goal lead through the actions of Rodrygo (16') and Jude Bellingham (61'). Braga managed to reduce the deficit through Alvaro Djalo's goal (63'). After the match, Carlo Ancelotti expressed his view about Braga's tough resistance in this match. The hosts fought back well, especially after scoring a goal back, but Madrid's defense was still solid. "Our back four played fantastically, and Camavinga helped. We struggled a little in the second half, all three games seemed to be secured, and we conceded," said Ancelotti.

"They knocked our confidence and we struggled. For about an hour or so, our defense performed very well." Eduardo Camavinga's performance in this match deserves a thumbs-up. He filled Madrid's defensive midfielder position very well. Camavinga continued to make clean tackles to stop the opponent's passes. He also won the most duels.

"I enjoyed Camavinga's performance in midfield. He played brilliantly," continued Ancelotti. This victory will be valuable capital for Madrid in welcoming the fierce duel against Barcelona this weekend. The Madrid squad is confident, and players like Camavinga are playing extraordinary. "After this match, we will know exactly what we need to do [El Clasico]. We have time to prepare. What is clear is that we enter this match with high spirits," he said.

Real Madrid will visit Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium to face arch-rival Barcelona in the first El Clasico match of the season on Saturday, 28 October. Los Blancos sit currently on the top of the points table in La Liga 2023-24 on the other hand Barcelona holds third place in the league.
