Real Madrid host Barcelona in El Clasico on Saturday. Both clubs lost 1-0 in their previous La Liga matches with a cagy encounter expected at Camp Nou.

Barcelona Form


Barcelona won their opening two La Liga matches of the season in fine fashion. A 4-0 home win against Villarreal was followed by a 3-0 victory at Celta Vigo.

Ronald Koeman's side were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Sevilla with Philippe Coutinho scoring the equaliser. The Catalan club returned from the international break with a poor 1-0 defeat at Getafe where they struggled to create chances.

Barcelona’s last match was a 5-1 home win against Ferencvaros in the UEFA Champions League. 

Goals to Lionel Messi, Ansu Fati and Philippe Coutinho established a 3-0 lead before Gerard Piqué was sent off. Barca conceded from the resulting penalty but goals to substitutes Pedri and Ousmane Dembélé put the result beyond doubt.

Barcelona Team News


Barcelona are still without goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen with Neto to continue in the starting side. Defenders Samuel Umtiti and Jordi Alba remain on the sidelines. 

Ousmane Dembélé came off the bench against Ferencvaros and provided a goal and an assist. He could start here at the expense of Trincão.

Expect Sergio Busquets and Antoine Griezmann to start against Real Madrid with Koeman facing some selection dilemmas.

Real Madrid Form


Real Madrid drew 0-0 at Real Sociedad in their opening La Liga match of the season. Los Blancos won three straight matches at Real Betis (3-2), against Real Valladolid (1-0) and at Levante (2-0).

Zinedine Zidane’s side then suffered a dismal 1-0 home defeat to Cadiz. It was a deserved defeat against the newly promoted side after having 1.14-1.77 expected goals.

The UEFA Champions League offered some redemption but Real fell to a 3-2 home defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk. Down 3-0 at half time, goals to Luka Modric and Vinícius Júnior got them back in it but they couldn’t find an equaliser.

Real Madrid Team News


Real Madrid central defender and captain Sergio Ramos has a minor knee injury but should return for El Clasico. 

Right-backs Alvaro Odriozola and Dani Carvajal are both injured alongside attackers Martin Odegaard, Eden Hazard and Mariano Diaz.

Expect Toni Kroos, Vinícius Júnior and Karim Benzema to come back into the starting side.
