It is time for the biggest game in European football, the El Classico as Barcelona prepare to host Real Madrid in the first leg of the Copa Del Ray semi-final. Both teams have had a fine run in the league of late and will be full of confidence going into this massive game. Real Madrid knows the cup competition is their only hope for a domestic honour this season after a dismal start to the La Liga which also saw the sacking of Julen Lopetegui. There were thumped 5-1 when the last times met in Nou Camp and revenge is something that will be on the minds of the Real players.

Barcelona are sweating over the fitness of talisman Lionel Messi who took a knock following his game-saving brace against Valencia in the last game. The Argentine will be assessed closely and if there is any possibility he can make the matchday squad it will be massive for the Catalonians. Ousmane Dembele’s hamstring problems rule him out of the game which means Phillipe Coutinho who is not having much of impact in games is likely to continue up front. Gerard Pique will partner Clement Lenglet after recovering from a clash of heads against Valencia. Jordi Alba should start at the full back along with starts for midfield ace Sergio Busquets who is available for selection after a suspension.
Real Madrid will deploy Keylor Navas in goal after the former no 1 overcame a hip injury and should replace Thibaut Courtois in the playing eleven. Inform striker, Karim Benzema is expected to lead the Los Blancos attack with Gareth Bale Marco Asensio either side of the Frenchman. The experienced midfield duo of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are the calming influence in the middle of the pitch for the visitors but have their task cut out in stopping the Barcelona juggernaut. Isco will once again have to settle for a place on the bench but may be given a run in if things are not going well. Barcelona will win the first leg of the Copa Del Ray but it will be a close contest with Real Madrid in fine form. A 2-1 score in favour of the Catalonians looks the most likely outcome.
