Former Barcelona and Real Madrid midfielder Michael Laudrup believes the Nou Camp side could be vulnerable after their defeat in the Clasico at the weekend.
Los Blancos beat their fierce rivals 2-1 thanks to goals from Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo. Gerard Pique had given the hosts the lead in the second half but the defeat ended the 39-game unbeaten run.
Los Cules still lead La Liga by six points ahead of Atletico de Madrid – and seven points from Real – with seven games to go. They also face Atletico in the Champions League quarter final first leg this evening.
And speaking to Sky Sports, Laudrup, who played 167 league games for Barcelona and 62 for Real, said Luis Enrique’s side could be vulnerable after their defeat at the weekend.
“Knowing Barcelona and the Catalans there will be a little doubt. ust one loss can create doubts, we will see in the coming week. I still think the league is done, but I want to see the impact in the coming games. Real deserved the win. In the second half they were the better team, even going down 1-0, then down to 10 men. Real come out with a lot of confidence while Barcelona have to play Atletico next,” he commented.
