The biggest football match on Earth is rapidly approaching. Barcelona and Real Madrid promise to give us another El Clásico for the ages at Camp Nou, and this one actually means a lot to the title race, maybe more than any of the recent ones. Even though it's still early days in the La Liga season, Madrid could open a nine-point gap in first place, and that'd be hard to reach.

A win for Barça and Hay Liga, with the Blaugrana just three points behind and another Clásico to play at Santiago Bernabéu. A few big stars will be missing, but Barça and Madrid never disappoint regardless of the players on the pitch. This will be fun, this will be intense, this may be full of goals or an exciting goalless draw. You never know. What we do know is that it's El Clásico, and that's a game we just have to watch.

Below is the ultimate guide you need for the game: who's in, who's out, who starts, everything. Get ready for El Clásico and VISCA EL BARÇA!
