Match of the Weekend: Barcelona - Real Madrid

Barcelona and Real Madrid face each other for the eleventh game of the Primera Division in a match that can change the image that exists at the top. However, only the match between the two teams is important as it is the biggest derby in the world.


Xavi's side host Real Madrid and need a win to move up in the standings after the match. The difference between the two teams is only one point, with a win Barcelona will be ahead. The psychology is at excellent levels after the home win over Shakhtar for the Champions League in which Xavi also rotated and rested players. As for Lewandowski, who suffered from an injury in the previous period, there is optimism that he will catch the derby, but if he does manage to start, it is difficult to start as a starter.

As for Bellingham who left with discomfort in the adductor the medical team was reassuring as it was emphasized that the discomfort was due to overload and that he will be available for the fraction.
