This is the biggest game in Spain and although it may not be as exciting as the past few seasons, it is still a very important fixture for both of these teams as they look to bag an early win over their rivals.

This will be the first El Clasico game without Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi in over 10 years.

This game is also coming at a time when Real Madrid are struggling for form and this could be Julen Lopetegui’s last game in charge of Los Blancos with a poor result.

Barcelona would go 7 points clear of Real Madrid at the top of La Liga if they can secure maximum points from this game.

Even without Lionel Messi, Barcelona still look more likely to take all three points after they impressively dispatched of Inter Milan in midweek.

Real Madrid also won in midweek, but there was nothing assuring about their laboured 2-1 win over Czech minors, Viktoria Plzen.

Real Madrid have an enviable record at Camp Nou, but with so many of their players under-performing and their defenders making errors, it is hard to see them getting a result in this game.

Barcelona have scored in all 21 of their last 21 matches against Real Madrid, and they are unbeaten in their last 41 league games at home.

No home team has won six El Clasico games in a row and Real Madrid haven’t lost any of their last 3 league visits to Barcelona.

Bookmakers make Barcelona slight odds-on favourites to come out on top at home (19/20) while Real Madrid are currently trading at (13/5) while the draw can be had at (14/5).

Goal markets strongly suggest we will see goals as over 2.5 goals is currently trading at (8/15) and first goalscorers point to Luis Suarez (10/3) or Gareth Bale (5/1).
