LA Galaxy star Landon Donovan thinks Real Madrid will prevail in a close encounter over bitter rivals Barcelona in Sunday’s El Clasico.
The 30-year-old said the clash between football’s two superpowers will have the attention of every fan in the world and assured the public that the spectacle will be worth it.
“For all of us football fans it’s one of the games we most look forward to watching every year or many times a year. This will be no different and it’s going to be exciting,” Donovan told Marca.
When the former Everton player was pressed to predict the result he gave Real the advantage, despite their stuttering start to the season.
“It’s hard to decide who’s going to win a game like this. I just hope it’s exciting and I hope (there are) lots of goals,” he said.
“I’ll say Madrid because they need to win – they are struggling.”
