The last time these two giants met, it gave Barca fans no choice but to face the harsh reality of life after the departure of Lionel Messi.
Madrid’s 2-1 victory over the Catalonian’s last year sparked some ugly scenes as fans ambushed former manager Ronald Koeman’s vehicle as he sped away from Camp Nou.
This time, Barcelona seek retribution. The addition of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang hands the away side a huge advantage. The Gabonese international has netted 5 goals in 6 league games this season, with high hopes of showing his new club more of what he’s capable of this Sunday.
Will Madrid’s star man Karim Benzema be available? The France striker is a huge doubt after he suffered a leg injury in Monday’s 3-0 win against Mallorca. He hopped off the field after scoring twice, extending his league tally to 22 goals.
Most “Clasico” matches have an impact on the La Liga title race. Not this time around. Madrid sit comfortably in 1st place and are 10 points clear of second place Sevilla. Barcelona trail in third place and with Atletico fourth, both sharing 51 points.
