The boys weren't motivated enough last time after Johan Cruiff's death. Seeing how they've been playing lately, I can't see a win. There is no motivation and there are no tactics. It really reminds me of the 07-08 season(last Rijkaard season). We're lucky if we'll finish in the top 4. Derby's against Real, Atletico, Sevilla and many others will end with losses if either the motivation/attitude or the tactics won't change.
'member when we had shivers?

Despite playing and winning CL and the Copa finals, this is without doubt Lucho's biggest game as a Barca coach because of where we stand in the League right now.
And I hope he's able to make the proper tactical so the team functions better. Obviously the players got to be incredibly motivated and fired up too.
I don't see us winning. Draw would be excellent considering the form we are in.
Also, I am gonna place a bet on Real win. Odds are good.
I am predicting us losing 1:2 and Messi coming up empty-handed again.
We will win
The Internet is full of tribute videos with some version of the title "Messi doesn't dive" a trait rare in a sport where players roll around on the ground like gunshot victims when an opponent so much as breathes on them.
Theories abound about why Messi won't fall, about his character or his respect for the game, but I think it's much simpler. If he dives, he loses the ball.
Sport not to long ago says Lucho will most likely play Masche at RB over Roberto.
Wouldn't surprise me if Lucho went with a Back three of Umtiti-Pique-Masche and If Alba is fit he would be pushed up into the Midfield.
Recent form can go out the window in these games.
I can't tell how many times I've seen us slated to comfortably win a big match because of form only to lose.

2014-2015 TRIPL3T! Visca Barca!
Everyone predicts RM win, even an easy one...GOOD! Now get angry and do a second half vs Sevilla!
Never been less excited for a clasico in my life. You just know Lucho is going to pull the same shit. Everyone comes in with high expectations and excitement - 3 minutes in, referee talking about how the pressure is killing us...I can just picture it - MATS just standing there with the ball, with nobody to pass to... Jeez.
This is going to be Messi vs Madrid. If anybody can, it's the GOAT. Let's hope he pulls this team out of the doldrums once again so we can stick it to the white bastards!

Even if we do beat RM by some miracle we will be back to our shitty old ways against the mediocre clubs.
I just don't see us turning the corner this season. We've been woeful.
