Real Madrid will host Barcelona tomorrow, Sunday at 16:15 at the Santiago Bernabeu in matchday 9 of La Liga.
These two teams are leve on points, 22, however Barcelona has more goals difference than Real Madrid.
Barcelona come to the Santiago Bernabeu following a 3-3 draw with Inter in the Champions League on Wednesday, which has already dampened their hopes of progressing to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
While Real Madrid managed to get one point from Ukraine in a 1-1 draw, which means they’re mathematically qualified for Champions League’s knockout stages.
Their previous encounter saw Barca secure a sensational 4-0 victory, so Blaugrana supporters will be hoping for consecutive Clasico triumphs for the first time since March 2019.
Both teams are yet to lose a game in La Liga this season.
