Even Without Messi – Stats Show Barca’s front line is better than Madrid
With El Clasico less than an hour away, the stats show that Luis Enrique’s men can feel confident they’ll outscore Real’s attack with or without their talismanic Lionel Messi.
The legendary Argentine player is currently a doubt for the most important match of the La Liga season so far.
In a statistical comparison between Barca’s ‘MSN’ (Messi-Suarez-Neymar) front line and Real’s ‘BBC’ (Bale-Benzema-Cristiano) attack, the former currently comes out on top by a significant margin. It’s important to note that Bale and Benzema have had their own injury niggles this season, yet the stats are still pretty striking.
