Real Madrid will welcome Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Sunday night as both sides look to collect all three points in the Clasico. Los Blancos managed to secure a 3-0 win over Mallorca last weekend which will give them a lot of confidence ahead of this game. Similarly, Barca picked up a narrow 2-1 victory over Galatasaray in midweek, so they will be eager to maintain their good form at the Spanish capital this weekend.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona: Talking Tactics

Carlo Ancelotti will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could name a strong first-team for this clash. The Italian tactician will ask his players to be patient if needed and focus on creating enough decent chances to win this league contest at home.

Xavi will also set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and might ask his players to defend their penalty box well and try to hurt the Madrid giants on the counter.

Key Men

Real Madrid

Both David Alaba and Eder Militao need to be at their best if they want to stop the opposition from scoring this weekend. Isco and Vinicius Junior will have to step up and make a difference in the injury absence of Karim Benzema.


Marc-André ter Stegen will be expected to make a few good saves if the Catalan outfit are to emerge victorious this weekend. The collective performance of Pedri, Sergio Busquets  and Frenkie de Jong could go a long way in determining the fate of this Clasico.
