Real Madrid Team News
Although Cristiano Ronaldo missed training earlier in the week, the Portuguese attacker is expected to make the lineup. Casemiro and Sergio Ramos are both back from injury and Zinedine Zidane has a big call to make now that Gareth Bale is back from injury. He’s tipped to stick with Isco in the hole, perhaps using Bale as an impact player off the bench.
Barcelona Team News
There’s a weakness in Barcelona’s back-line, with regular centre-back Samuel Umtiti out injured. Thomas Vermaelen has looked capable at filling the gap so far but this will be the ultimate test. Sergi Roberto is tipped to get the nod at right-back ahead of Nelson Semedo while Paulinho will hope to continue his fine form supporting Suarez and Messi in attack.

Real Madrid v Barcelona Predictions
There’s no denying that Real Madrid have been underwhelming so far this season. However, they come into this match fresh from winning the Club World Cup and looking for a fifth consecutive victory in all competitions. Crucially, it seems that Cristiano Ronaldo has now found his shooting boots again.
Barcelona had gone off the boil a little a few games back when they drew a few matches. Back-to-back La Liga wins over Villarreal and Deportivo la Coruna have them back on track and it’s interesting that they kept clean sheets in each of those matches. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are in the scoring groove, giving them an obvious threat.
Real Madrid’s main problem this season has been the taking of chances. They’ve dominated numerous games but been unable to find the net. That seems to have been remedied and they may take heart from beating Barca over two legs in the Spanish Super Cup earlier in the season. This will be a close game but Real are tipped to pull out all of the stops and keep their La Liga dream alive.
