Why you can not afford to miss Sunday’s El Clasico

Real Madrid's Thibaut Courtois threatens to sue Spanish paper for Mourinho, Conte claims

Spanish giants Real Madrid are preparing for Sunday's El Clasico against Barcelona at the Camp Nou with a freaky video and photo shot-out at the Santiago Bernabeu on Friday.

Sunday's Clásico will be Courtois' 13 game against Barça, the team that has tormented him most during his career. Since some of the best players of the world often end up signing for either Real Madrid or Barcelona, the neutrals get to see these stars battling it out against each on the pitch.

Lopetegui said Messi's absence was not a big factor in his preparations for the game.

Tonight, the two sides are set to go head-to-head in a pivotal meeting at the Nou Camp.

As of Matchday 10, Barcelona holds the top spot in the Spanish league standings with 18 points, ahead of Espanyol on goal difference, while Real Madrid is in seventh place with 14 points.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said the Spanish League was lucky to have Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

A win will ease the pressure off the manager's back and the fans will have the first bragging rights at their oppositions.

Real Madrid have struggled for goals, with Marcelo's drive in Saturday's 2-1 defeat by Levante the first they had scored in a club record eight hours of football without finding the net. Madrid are just four points clear of a woeful Valencia that have managed one win all season long.

Messi watched from the stands as his Barca team-mates earned a 2-0 Group B victory over Italian visitors Inter at Camp Nou on Wednesday. Madrid created very little, and the likes of Ronaldo and Bale were kept quiet by the Catalonian defence.

Before kickoff, Barcelona fans chanted "Messi!" On Saturday, Athletic Bilbao host fellow surprise strugglers Valencia, while Real Sociedad visit Atletico Madrid in the day's late kick-off. A draw in the match is estimated to 4.60.

"This result is a great confidence boost for all of us and when Sunday brings the Clasico we'll be so up for it". "We have to be recognisable in the way we play, keeping the ball".
