The Whites will need a win at the Bernabéu if they want to get back to the top of the table (9:00pm CET).
The first Clásico of 2020 is here. Real Madrid and Barcelona are going head-to-head at the Santiago Bernabéu with a two-point difference between them and 13 match days left till the end of the campaign. The Whites will need a win at the Bernabéu if they want to get back to the top of the table (9:00pm CET).

The importance of this game, what is on the line and what it means for these players is indescribable. Club captain Sergio Ramos said: “El Clásico is like no other game. There are just a couple of points between us so it will be hard fought”. The fans at the Bernabéu know that and will try to be decisive in helping their team get the win.

“We need our fans behind us from the first minute till the 90th. In el Clásico we need head, heart and unity”, claimed Zidane in the press conference. The coach has called up 19 players for a game on which they need to show why they have conceded the fewest goals in LaLiga and are unbeaten at home this term.

Eternal rivals
Barcelona come to the Bernabéu after winning their last three games in LaLiga and they hope to stay top of the league. Away from the Camp Nou, Setién's team have five wins, three draws and four defeats. Messi, with 18 goals, is the azulgrana's ​top scorer this term.
