Zinadine Zidane without handful of players ahead of El Clasico

Real Madrid will be taking a visit to the Camp Nou as they face arch nemesis FC Barcelona in the most anticipated fixture of the season. The two Spanish juggernauts are on level terms with 35 points after 16 games and a win for either team will give them a much needed three-point cushion.

Problems for Zidane

However, Real Madrid manager, Zinadine Zidane will be without quite a few first-team players ahead of the mega tie. James Rodriguez, Marcelo, Marco Asensio, Lucas Vazquez and big summer signing Eden Hazard also misses out due to injury.

Madrid's veterans

With plenty of experienced players missing out for Los Blancos, players such as Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Sergio Ramo and Kaim Benzema will have the onus of leading their side as examples into the crunch game which can decide the fate of the title in the grand scheme of things.


In terms of the last six meetings between the two sides, FC Barcelona has won games. Two games have ended on level terms while Real Madrid hasn't won even once in that tenure.
