The captain of Real Madrid cannot wait for the biggest game of the season.

Skipper Sergio Ramos spoke to his club's website to preview this Saturday's El Clásico against Barcelona, and the Spaniard is looking at the match as a chance to avenge the historical 4-0 loss at Santiago Bernabéu earlier this season.

According to the defender, Los Blancos arrive at Camp Nou in good form and spirits, ready to end Barça's unbeaten streak and finish their La Liga campaign on a high. Here's a look at some of Ramos' quotes:

"The team is in very good shape. This is a week and a game that we don't need to a say a lot about because we all know the massive consequences and importance that comes with playing in a Clásico, particularly given what we've been through this season. In football anything can happen and the team is in fine spirits ahead of the run-in".

"After the bad result in the first Clásico, football gives you the chance for revenge and on Saturday we've got the opportunity to play away against a great team like Barcelona. We're keen to perform well. The team is on very good form and is in a positive frame of mind to go there and put in a great performance and pick up the three points, which would serve to reduce the gap with them in La Liga".

Key areas in the Clásico

"Football is difficult, but we're keen to put in a good performance and it's easier when you put your heart and soul into it and show character and application. Anything can happen because there'll be a referee out there and we'll be coming up against great team, who have dangerous players who can make all the difference".

"We must try to defend well because these games hinge on small details and the team that ends up winning is usually the one that makes the least mistakes. Let's hope that Real Madrid put in a great performance and claim the victory".
