Rivaldo backs Barca to win El Clasico

Rivaldo believes Barcelona have what it takes to bag the three points in Sunday’s Liga match against Real Madrid at Camp Nou.

Barca beat their arch-rivals 3-2 at home in the Spanish Supercopa earlier this season after Real Madrid won the league title in 2011/12.

Rivaldo, who played for Barcelona for five years beginning in 1997, believes Real Madrid face a tough task in Catalunya.

“It’s a difficult match. Complicated. You never know what’s going to happen because Madrid have a great side and they’ve won at Camp Nou in the past,” he told the club’s website.

“But playing at home, I think Barca can win.”

The Brazilian then went on to praise Tito Vilanova and said the coach would be successful at the club.

“Vilanova is a brilliant coach. Now, being (Pep) Guardiola’s replacement, who did a great job, he has a good opportunity,” Rivaldo said.

“I’m sure he’ll succeed, because he has a team that plays really well – they make football easy. I think things will go well for him.”

Rivaldo also had words of praise for Lionel Messi and the other Barca players.

“I really like humble players like Messi. I think that all the Barcelona players are humble. That’s why they do what they do,” he said.
