Once maligned, Dembélé and Vinícius shine before 'clásico'

  • 0

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Barcelona and Real Madrid meet Saturday in a “clásico” match that will impact the Spanish league title race. Both teams will be looking for another big performance from a pair of players who until recently were unreliable in the clutch. Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembélé has provided decisive goals this season after improving his fitness and ending his long run of injuries. Madrid winger Vinícius Júnior has finally found his scoring touch after netting twice against Liverpool this week. Barcelona is only one point adrift of struggling leader Atlético Madrid. Madrid is two points behind Barcelona.
