The clash between the two old rivals will be eagerly anticipated as always and is likely to have a bearing on this season’s title race.
Real Madrid have been perfect so far and haven’t dropped a single point, while Barca’s only dropped points in La Liga came on the opening day with a 0-0 draw at Rayo.
Los Blancos have had the upper hand in this fixture recently but Barca will fancy their chances of taking three points will need no reminding they beat Carlo Ancelotti’s side in pre-season.
