FC Barcelona v Real Madrid Preview
Real Madrid face El Clásico with optimism after winning 9 out the last 10 games, including a great victory in the derby against Atlético de Madrid. On Wednesday, they thrashed again Cultural Leonesa in Copa del Rey and they opened the gap with Barcelona in La Liga on Sunday, when culés drew at Anoeta.
Actually, Barcelona have dropped points in the last two games in La Liga, failing to beat Málaga and Real Sociedad. They couldn’t win in their Copa del Rey fixture against Hércules, a third division team.
Luis Enrique can recover Andrés Iniesta, who is expected to start, and Umtiti, who will fight for a place with Javier Mascherano. Zidane has now available Casemiro, who could start instead of Isco. Varane and Pepe also fight for a position in the defence line.
