Barcelona vs Real Madrid Team News and Lineups
As Zinedine Zidane warned in his pre-match press conference, Eden Hazard has not returned in time to be included in Real Madrid’s squad for Saturday night’s Clasico against Barcelona at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
Short week of preparation with several question marks. Will Sergio Ramos be able to play? With Raphael Varane out due to testing positive, how will the backline look? We saw Eder Militao and Nacho play at center back against Liverpool, and they looked solid. But, that was with Casemiro helping cover them. Expect something similar here, and with Casemiro dropping deep, it could give Barca the end in the middle to get forward.
Barcelona is a dangerous offensive team with Griezmann, Dembele, Messi, Dest and Alba all impacting the game but could be vulnerable defensively, so it will be important for Madrid’s backline to play with composure in the absence of both Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal.
Real Madrid possible starting lineup: Courtois; Vazquez, Militao, Nacho, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius
Barcelona possible starting lineup: Ter Stegen; Mingueza, De Jong, Lenglet; Dest, Pedri, Busquets, Alba; Griezmann, Messi, Dembele
Real Madrid and Barcelona Head-to-Head
This will be 181 La Liga match between the two sides. Real Madrid have a slender lead of 74 victories out of the previous 181 matches. Barcelona have won 72. As many as 35 matches have ended in draw.
The first recorded match between the two clubs and therefore the first-ever Clasico was played in May 1902, just a couple of months after Madrid Football Club, as it was then, came into being.
The first Clasico to be played at the Bernabeu, named for Real’s legendary striker and opened in 1947, was played in September 1948 and was won 2-1 by Barcelona. Camp Nou opened a decade later in 1957 and the first Clasico there in February 1958 was conversely won by Real.
The recent head-to-head record between the two sides is split down the middle, with both sides winning two of their last five league meetings. Real Madrid did, however, come away as 3-1 winners in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
