Barcelona will be on the lookout for a win in order to set the course to retain their title, since they rest 6 points behind the table toppers Real Madrid, who have remained unbeaten so far in the season and will be eager to continue in the same fashion.

The match will also pit the two stars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo against each other, and it remains to be seen which player will emerge on the top of their game.

As for injury concerns, Barcelona go into the fixture with a relatively fit team with Andres Iniesta also returning to the playing fold. However, the attack will be led the lethal trio of Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.

Real Madrid, on the other hand will miss the presence of Gareth Bale who has been ruled out due to a gruesome injury. The mantle of shouldering the responsibility will be on Ronaldo who will be backed by Karim Benzema. Midfielder Casemiro also is set to return from injury, but whether Zidane field him in the starting 11 or not is still a matter of question.Two best players on the planet - Messi and Ronaldo
