Real Madrid Start 2022/23 Season With A Win, Barcelona Under Pressure After Failing To Win

Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid continue to pile unbearable pressure on arch rivals Barcelona after opening the 2022/23 season on a different note. Barcelona drew in their opening fixture while Real Madrid just won their opening game.

Barcelona hosted embattled Rayo Vallecano yesterday and they failed to record a goal despite starting the game with an attacking trident of Raphinha, Lewandowski and Dembele.

The three attackers had been praised for glory and we’re tipped to easily rise over opponents. Ahead of yesterday’s fixture at Camp Nou, there was the usual atmosphere of Barcelona easily running over their opponent. The barren scores appeared surprising to pundits as they anticipated a different outcome.

This obviously invited pressure on Barcelona as their sworn rivals were scheduled to play today.

Indeed, Real Madrid are looking unstoppable as they just beat Almeria 2:1. The away game for Carlo Ancelotti and his lads could not douse their flame as they aim to scoop any trophy that fall their way.

Having opened the season with an all important three points, they may not look back and that could be a daunting task for Barcelona to bear.

Real Madrid are not showing any sign of giving up and Barcelona may have to be consistent to compete this season.
