As Barcelona prepare to take on Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu, a certain Joao Felix will seek a turnaround in fortune as the Portuguese international has not only won against the Madrid-based team but has also not scored against them.

In his career, Felix has faced Real Madrid ten times – the most he has played against any team – while featuring for Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, and Barcelona, but he has never managed to win a match or score a goal against them

Whether it is in La Liga, the Super Cup, or the Champions League, Felix has only struggled against Real Madrid, enduring seven losses and three draws. 

After having played more than 500 minutes against them, the 24-year-old forward must be optimistic about turning his luck around on Sunday. 

Furthermore, his recent goal against Cadiz must be making Barcelona hopeful to see a repeat of this performance to improve his record against Real Madrid. 

Joao Felix vs Real Madrid – Detailed record

While being an Atletico player, Felix faced Real Madrid six times. His first encounter was a goalless match during the 2019-2020 La Liga season’s seventh gameweek.

The two teams didn’t meet again until the final of the Spanish Super Cup, which Atletico lost on penalties.

Joao Felix played against Real Madrid four more times in La Liga before being loaned to Chelsea for the second half of the last season.

In England, he faced Madrid in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. He started in the first leg at the Bernabeu, but Chelsea lost 0-2. 

In the return match at Stamford Bridge, he played the last 30 minutes, but Chelsea were eliminated from the competition after another 0-2 loss.

After moving to Barcelona, Felix took part in two matches against Real Madrid during the current season. In La Liga, he started the game at Montjuic, which ended in a 1-2 defeat for Barcelona.

The most recent encounter was in the final of the Super Cup, where Barcelona suffered a significant 1-4 loss.

Felix only played for 29 minutes, marking the second time he faced Real Madrid in a Super Cup final, and once again he could not lead his team to victory.
