Former Barcelona winger Emmanuel Amuneke believes Luis Suarez and Neymar will be the stars to decideSaturday’s El Clasico at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Speaking exclusively to Completesportsnigeria.com ahead of the game, the ex-Super Eagles star who recently guided Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets to a recod fifth FIFA U-17 World Cup title in Chile, however agrees that the game will be a very tough one.
“The El Clasico is arguably the biggest match in Europe and as a former player of Barcelona, I can imagine the preparation for this game,” Amuneke told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“It will be a very difficult game to call but I feel the goal scoring feats of Luis Suarez and Neymar will be vital. Real Madrid too have got their superstars in Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Isco and others but these two are in the form of their lives and I hope their goals will win this for Barcelona.”
On the likelihood of Lionel Messi playing in the game after making a return from injury, Amuneke responded:
“We all want Lionel Messi to play in such a big match but if he is not fit enough to play, there will be no need to rush him back. Barcelona have the players to match Real Madrid.”
