Lionel Messi’s Barcelona and Real Madrid will play out what will be a crucial match in the title race this season. Watch La Liga live!
Real Madrid welcome arch-rivals FC Barcelona to the Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium in Madrid this Sunday for the much-anticipated El Clasico, which headlines La Liga 2020-21's matchweek 30.
The result of the upcoming El Clasico may have serious implications in this year's La Liga title race. Watch Real Madrid vs Barcelona live in India.
While Atletico Madrid were running away with the title in the early part of the season, Diego Simeone's men seem to have lost the plot since the turn of the year.
Though Atletico still lead the La Liga points table with 66 points, Barcelona with 65 and Real Madrid with 63 are hot on their heels.
Both the Spanish giants have improved considerably after a slow start and are making a late play for the title. Engaged in a tight title race, Sunday's El Clasico will be a virtual six-pointer and whoever wins it will gain significant ground in their quest for the La Liga title.
Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid will go into the crunch tie with some serious defensive concerns. Los Blancos captain Sergio Ramos is still out injured while the other first-choice centre back Raphael Varane has been ruled out after testing positive for COVID earlier this week.
Zidane, hence, will have to turn to the inexperienced duo of Eder Militao and Nacho to guard the Madrid fort against an in-form Barcelona attack featuring Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele.
Barcelona captain Gerard Pique is also nearing a return after a long injury layoff but it's unlikely that coach Ronald Koeman will risk putting the Spaniard in straight away in a big match.
The back three consisting of Frenkie de Jong, Clément Lenglet and Óscar Mingueza have worked well for the Catalans in recent games and Koeman is likely to rely on the unlikely trio to snuff out the threat from Madrid's Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio.
