Barcelona vs Real Madrid clash in a highly-anticipated contest on Sunday afternoon.
It is one of the world’s great club games, known as El Clasico, and this weekend’s edition of the match should be no different.
That said, Barcelona have had a difficult start to their season, although recent signs have been more positive. They are seventh in the La Liga table, having won four, drawn three and lost one. They did beat Dynamo Kiev in mid-week to kickstart their Champions League campaign.
Real Madrid are in a slightly stronger position. They are third in the table under Carlo Ancelotti and have won five of eight games, drawing twice and losing once. Real thrashed Shakhtar Donetsk 5-0 in mid-week in Europe.
Barcelona will be without Martin Braithwaite, Ousmane Dembele, Pedri and Ronald Araujo.
There are also doubts over Jordi Alba’s fitness after his injury in the Champions League. Ansu Fati and Sergi Roberto could return to the starting line-up for the hosts.
Real Madrid will be missing Dani Ceballos and Gareth Bale, but Eden Hazard and Dani Carvajal could be fit enough to make the squad.
Isco and Luka Jovic are doubts, while Karim Benzema missed training on Friday. That said, there is no expectation that he will miss Sunday’s game.
