Robert Lewandowski, Frenkie de Jong, and Raphinha could be back fit for El Clásico if all goes well.

According to Spanish radio, Xavi is expecting to have the trio back for the pivotal clash if all continues to goes well.

The match against Real Madrid kicks off this Saturday. Barcelona are a point behind both Madrid and Girona FC after Madrid’s draw with Sevilla.

Girona recovered from an early two goal deficit to beat Almeria 5-2. And Barcelona relied on a late goal from Marc Guiu, with his first touch ever as a senior level player, to beat Athletic Club de Bilbao 1-0.

There’s every chance that the victor of the Madrid-Barcelona match will end up topping La Liga, or at the very least, taking a big step in the long road towards winning the title.
