El Clasico: How Busquets and Modric compare ahead of Barca-Real Madrid clash
Image

Sergio Busquets and Luka Modric maxbet are viewed as two of the most influential midfielders in the game today. We take a look at their stats ahead of the first El Clasico of the season taking place on October 28th. For La Liga fans, one of the biggest games of the season is certainly El Clasico. But for casual observers who are more interested in other leagues, the Lionel Messi vs. Cristiano Ronaldo made the Barcelona vs. Real Madrid clash even more interesting to catch just because of the two superstar players on the pitch.

That being said, El Clasico is arguably one of the biggest and most well-known sporting rivalries in world football, and has been a hotly contested tie even before either Messi or Ronaldo came onto the scene. And it certainly will be a big fixture after both have hung up their boots. For the first time since 2007, though, neither player will be featuring.

One has said his good-byes to the club where he famously won four of his Ballon d'Or awards, and Italian football fans are certainly happy to have Cristiano Ronaldo plying his trade in Serie A as it has helped to further elevate the league on the world stage. maxbet Meanwhile, Messi unfortunately will miss out on Barcelona's clash against their famous rivals due to an elbow injury, meaning that he will have to wait until at least next year to feature in his first Clasico of the 2018/2019 season.

Despite the absence of Messi and Ronaldo, though, there is still plenty of star quality on the pitch, and two such notable players are not strikers. Nor are they defenders. Rather, they are the men who keep things ticking in the middle of the park. Luka Modric, who had a hugely successful World Cup as Croatia shocked the world and made it all the way to the final, is certainly a serious contender to finally end the duopoly in the Ballon d'Or race that Messi maxbet and Ronaldo have enjoyed since 2008. The 33-year-old Croatian, who also played a key role in Real Madrid's three consecutive Champions League triumphs, is hoping to become the first player since Kaka, who was then with AC Milan in 2007, to win the coveted prize.

Serie A round-up: Napoli lose more ground on Juventus following Chievo draw

Serie A round-up: Napoli lose more ground on Juventus following Chievo draw

188bet Napoli lost further ground on Serie A leaders Juventus after they could only manage a goalless draw at home to bottom club Chievo. Jose Callejon had the best chance of a quiet first half in the 43rd minute, forcing a fine save from Stefano Sorrentino at the end of a swift counter-attack. Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne were also denied by the veteran goalkeeper early in the second half, while the latter saw a shot on the turn come back off a post with 14 minutes remaining.

The draw took rock-bottom Chievo on to one point having started the campaign on minus three after being found guilty of accounting irregularities. Joaquin Correa scored deep into stoppage time to snatch Lazio a point from a 1-1 draw with AC Milan at Stadio Olimpico. Milan's Hakan Calhanoglu saw an effort deflect against a post in the first half, while Lazio had a goal ruled out for offside.

Wallace was denied by a superb save from visiting goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma in the 71st minute but shortly afterwards the Brazilian defender deflected Franck Kessie's shot past Thomas Strakosha to put Milan in front. 188bet That had looked to be enough until the fourth minute of time added on when Correa controlled the ball on his knee and fired into the bottom corner.

The derby clash between Genoa and Sampdoria ended all square. It took just eight minutes 188bet for Fabio Quagliarella to head in the opening goal for Sampdoria, but Genoa equalised from the penalty spot nine minutes later. Krzysztof Piatek was tripped by goalkeeper Emil Audero and the Polish striker stepped up to score. Genoa manager Ivan Juric was sent to the stand for showing dissent towards the fourth official with 15 minutes left but the game ended 1-1.
