In a must win fixture for Real Madrid, should they want to remain in the title race, Los Blancos will travel to Barcelona this Saturday. Coming into this game with a 10 point gap from Barcelona, anything less than a win would rule out Real Madrid from this season’s La Liga title race.
Analyzing the recent form of both sides, it is evident that Barcelona should be considered favorites. Undefeated in their last 22 league games at home, odds are with Barcelona to come out of this fixture with flying colors.
However, no matter what the league table might suggest, it isn’t all doom and gloom for Real Madrid. They are coming into this game on a 4 match winning streak. Furthermore, with Gareth Bale coming back, the stalwarts of Zinedine Zidane have the ability to get the revenge of that early season demolition.
In addition to Gareth Bale, who has returned from his injury, Real Madrid will welcome back the likes of Pepe and Sergio Ramos from suspension. Thus, Zinedine Zidane won’t have any excuses if things go wrong for Los Blancos on Saturday.
Here is how Real Madrid will lineup for El Clasico …
