Barcelona players play FIFA 16 ahead of the Clasico

Published 1 Comments

El Clasico is unquestionably the biggest game in the La Liga calendar. But ahead of Barcelona's trip to Real Madrid on Saturday, the players seem to be in a relaxed mood.

In a video posted on EA Sports FIFA's official YouTube channel, six Blaugrana stars went head-to-head on the latest installment of the video game.

Neymar, Jordi Alba and Marc-Andre ter Stegen took on Dani Alves, Arda Turan and Claudio Bravo, and it was a landslide win for one side.

The trio of Neymar, Alba and Ter Stegen emphatically swept aside their teammates with a 4-0 win, but there were moments in the game that would lead to many smashed controllers in any other situation. 

The Brazilian's skills on FIFA match his on-pitch ability, but, unfortunately, he appears to be a fan of sweaty goals. Not once, but twice he squared the ball to Alba to score into an empty net. Evidently he plays a lot of Ultimate Team.

It was clear to see Alves, Turan and Bravo were not regular FIFA players, and that was made clear when the Brazilian defender said: "We are family men".

It seemed an unfair mismatch and the scoreline reflected that. But it gives the winners the bragging rights over their friends. 


The Catalan giants have a chance to go six points clear of their major rivals with a win at the Bernabeu. Lionel Messi could be in line to make his return from injury and he will only strengthen Barca's chances.

Rafa Benitez is already under pressure in Madrid and his first Clasico could prove to be his last if the right result is not achieved.
