This is probably going to be the decider in the race for the title in top league of Spain and one of most famous leagues of the world.
Real Madrid are in the driving seat because they hold a three points advantage over Barcelona and have a game in hand, so if they win this game, this gap will be widen with six points and they will not let it go.
It is a must win game for Barcelona to keep the hope alive of staying in the league.
Real Madrid will be far confident than Barcelona in this match because of their current performance. In their last five matches, they have won four of them and one match was drawn. But on the other hand, Barcelona have won only two their last five matches with two lost and a draw.
Real Madrid’s players were used wisely to keep them fresh as last week players like Benzema, Ronaldo, Modric, Kroos and Casemiro were left behind.
On the other hand, Barcelona will not be a fresh team on the field as there were not enough convincing options for the team to rotate players in past.
Missing Neymar for this huge clash because of suspension, can create problems for Barcelona. Barcelona did win their last league visit to the Bernabeu and they will need their big guns scoring to repeat that.
Dani Carvajal is back from a ban to start at right-back. Gareth Bale could also be
fit to start wide on the right. Pepe and Raphael Varane will not be available to the team against Barcelona..
Neymar is banned which will create advanced role for Jordi Alba on the left. Arda Turan is an injury doubt.
