Make or Buy?
Barcelona or Real Madrid? Barcelona makes them. Real Madrid buys them. It’s a matter of degree of course, but I think the distinction holds. Rob Hughes reports, in anticipation of Sunday’s World Cup Final, where Spain are favorited to beat The Netherlands. With a squad loaded with Barcelona players and just a couple of Madridistas, competing against a Dutch side that has two talented castoffs from Madrid. Perhaps team chemistry is better advanced by make then buy.
My prediction? 2-1 Barcelona. I mean Spain. After extra time.
