Real Madrid and Barcelona clash tonight in El Clasico and neither side can afford to lose the contest which is bound to have huge implications in the title race. Ronald Koeman’s side head to the Spanish capital having won their last six La Liga matches, hot form that has seen them close the gap on Atletico Madrid at the summit.

A win tonight could crank up the pressure on Atletico, who have now lost Luis Suarez to a muscle injury, even more as we head into the run-in.

Barcelona are currently second, just one point adrift of the leaders who went down 1-0 at Sevilla last weekend.

Koeman’s men appear to have turned the corner just at the right time but Real Madrid are also well in contention.

They are just two points behind Barcelona but are fresh off the back of Tuesday’s 3-1 win over Real Madrid.

Zinedine Zidane’s side have also won their past three La Liga matches and were 3-1 victors at the Camp Nou back in October.

They will be without captain Sergio Ramos though, who scored in that game, due to a muscle injury.

World Cup winner Raphael Varane is also set to miss the game after testing positive for COVID-19 in midweek.
