As FC Barcelona get set to take on Real Madrid in La Liga at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday, Los Blancos manager Carlo Ancelotti had words of praise for two Blaugrana talents.

It has been a dream breakthrough season for Lamine Yamal and Pau Cubarsi, both of whom have become permanent fixtures in the starting XI at Barcelona despite being 16 and 17 years old, respectively.

And, Ancelotti spoke about the two young talents ahead of tomorrow’s game, claiming that they had a bright future in the game.

“The connection between veterans and young people is very important. Cubarsi and Yamal are a surprise for everyone, they are very young and are going to have a very successful future,” said Ancelotti.

Yamal has already participated in a couple of El Clasico encounters, having featured as a substitute in La Liga and the Spanish Super Cup final meetings earlier this season.

For Cubarsi, it will be a debut in the senior El Clasico, something that admittedly excites the 17-year-old.

Both players will have key roles to play if Barcelona are to come out on top tomorrow and stand a chance of defending their La Liga title in the final phase of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Ancelotti also spoke about what he expects from Xavi Hernandez’s men tomorrow at the Santiago Bernabeu, as he said:

“It is going to be a very competitive opponent, who are doing very well. We are convinced that it will be a classic as always, it will be very hard fought. It is a great opportunity to get closer to La Liga.

“Barcelona are a very lively team,” he added.
