How have they been playing coming in?: Well, Real Madrid has been fantastic. The club hasn’t lost a game this season and has won its last five games by a score of 16-3. Barca on the other hand has won just two of its last six matches, including draws in their last two games. Only one loss in the last six (3-1 against Man. City on Nov. 1), but just eight goals in the last seven games. In comparison, the first seven games of the season saw Barca score 20 goals. Now, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez both missed the Malaga match a couple weeks ago, but the overall lack of scoring is a concern.
Who is the pressure on?: That’s easy — it’s Barcelona. The game is at the Nou Camp, a place where Real Madrid won last year. Barca has to feel the pressure because it is in second place in La Liga, six points behind Real Madrid. If Real wins, that opens up a nine-point gap that, even though we are just a third of the way into the season, could snowball into something insurmountable.
What to watch: Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, of course. They are two of the top three best goal scorers in El Clasico’s history. Messi had 21 goals against Real Madrid, the most of any player ever in the rivalry. Real Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano is second with 18, while Ronaldo is third with 16. Chances are one of them, if not both, score here.
