Former FC Barcelona player Dani Alves has indicated that he has good expectations for this Sunday’s El Clásico at the Camp Nou and hopes that, despite the “transition” process in which he believes the team is, one can provide one ” great victory “against Real Madrid.

“There is always a huge expectation when the Classic arrives. You already smell the game all week, there are two historical ones facing each other and the feelings are always good. I have lived many things against this rival, I hope those feelings continue to be good and I hope they add joys for this club, “he said on Barça TV +.

Dani Alves, who attended the victory over Dinamo Kiev at the Camp Nou in the Champions League and hopes to repeat in the Clásico on Sunday, believes that Barça has the potential to win. “Barça is a lot of Barça and hopefully they will give the fans a great victory. We cannot lose hope because Barça is always Barça and we have to face challenges with confidence, despite being in transition and in a process of getting back to work. things as we did for a long time, “he explained.

“The 5-0 here and the 2-6 there were magical because of how they happened and because of how we played in the two games. We were a simple team that did the easiest and did it perfect, to make people enjoy themselves,” he recalled on the two most important Classics that he played in his time as a Blaugrana player.

On the other hand, he assured that Sergiño Dest, a right-handed winger whom some compare to Alves, is a “great player” who must “understand” how Barça works. “Here you live differently and things are done differently. Dest has to take those tricks, here the simplest is always the most effective. And they ask you for different things, Barça is special,” he acknowledged.
