Starting XI: Real v Barca

Spanish La Liga

Teams: Real Madrid v FC Barcelona

Date: 23 April 2017

Venue: Santiago Bernabeu

La Liga leaders Real Madrid will look to pull clear of FC Barcelona when the two rivals clash at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h45.

Los Blancos come into this encounter on the back of a 4-2 win over Bayern Munich in extra time to secure their spot in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

Barcelona, meanwhile, were dumped out of the Champions League after they failed to overturn a 3-0 deficit, after drawing 0-0 with Juventus on Wednesday.
 
Zinedine Zidane's charges currently sit two points ahead of the Catalan giants with a game in hand heading into the encounter.
 
Barca will be without Neymar, who is serving the second of his three match ban in La Liga, while Real are without Pepe and Raphael Varane.
 
When these two sides met at the Camp Nou earlier in the season, Sergio Ramos cancelled out Luis Suarez's strike as the drew 1-1.
 
 
Here's how they line up:

Real: 
Navas, Carvajal, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo, Kroos, Casemiro, Modric, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.
 
Barca: Ter Stegen; Roberto, Pique, Umtiti, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Messi, Suarez, Alcacer.
