It’s Barca’s turn to win El Clasico -Suarez

Barcelona forward, Luis Suarez believes it is their ‘turn’ to win the El Clasico against La Liga rivals Real Madrid this Sunday.

Barca have failed to win their last three Clasicos at Camp Nou, drawing 2-2 towards the end of last season, but Madrid no longer have Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks and have not won in La Liga for over a month.

“Clasicos are always Clasicos,” Suarez, who has six goals in 10 previous meetings with Los Blancos, told Mundo Deportivo.

“In the last one of last season, we were already champions but still played with the intensity of a Clasico.”

He continued: “We want to win, for the fans, ourselves and to stay top. It’s our turn to win and we hope it is on Sunday.

“You try to play the same as you normally do in a Clasico, but you can’t. You think more and you’re more focused.

“The adrenaline is something else and the atmosphere is different. It’s different but we try to do the same as always.

“Just for how it’s played, Clasicos remind me of knockout matches with Uruguay and the way South Americans approach them.

“Playing in a Clasico gives you a special vibration. The fans spread the adrenaline and the players want to win no matter what.”

Both sides will meet at the Camp Nou by 3:15p.m Nigeria time.
