El Clasico: FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid: Team News/Rumours

New, comments

With only a few minutes until the official teams are announced, I figured it was a good time to round up the rumours that have been doing the round in Spain before kick-off. Of course, these are not official, but do give some food for thought.

Basically, AS are suggesting that there will be starts for Esteban Granero, Kaka and Xabi Alonso against the Blaugrana, presumably with Kaka ahead of the double-pivot in Mourinho's 4-2-3-1. Julio Maldonado (and indeed the rest of the footballing world) thinks this would be suicide; let's hope he's right! :D

On the Barca side of things, it has been reported that Thiago and Cristian Tello will start, which would certainly be interesting to say the least.
