Barcelona icon Johan Cruyff said reigning La Liga champions Real Madrid cannot afford to lose Sunday’s El Clasico at Camp Nou.

Jose Mourinho’s side trail Barca by eight points after just six games, and Cruyff said they will find themselves in a precarious situation if they are beaten in the Clasico.

“Normally you don’t know what is going to happen, but this time I think that Madrid are in more danger than ever because they are so far behind,” Cruyff told Sky Sports.

“If they lose this one it is like having the whole world falling over you. These are normally the games I fear the most. Madrid will do more than everything to change this situation around.

“Mourinho will be under a lot of pressure after Sunday if they lose. Then there is a big problem.

“It could be (a tipping point). If (they) play seven or eight games and – if he loses – they will be so far behind (Barca). There’s no excuse (for that).”
