Madrid — Rafa Benitez promises Real Madrid will come out attacking in the first clasico of the season against Barcelona on Saturday.
With all of his top strikers available after injuries and off-the-field problems, the coach said on Friday that Madrid will not relinquish its offensive style just because it's facing Barcelona.
Benitez says Madrid has to play on attack "no matter who the opponent is," and nothing will change even if Lionel Messi is able to play following a long injury layoff.
The coach did not announce the starting lineup for the match at the Santiago Bernabeu, but said Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and Gareth Bale will all be available.
