The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h45.

With Ernesto Valverde's men having secured the league title at Deportivo La Coruna last weekend, Barca will be looking to extend their unbeaten run while Los Blancos can move to within a point of second-place of Atletico Madrid, who lost 2-0 to Espanyol earlier today.

Madrid, meanwhile, come into the clash on the back of a 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich that saw them progress to the UEFA Champions League final on aggregate.

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi will be looking to extend his impressive scoring record against his bitter rivals, having bagged 25 goals in 37 appearances against the Galacticos.

Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, meanwhile, has only found the back of the net 17 times against the Catalan giants.

When these sides faced off earlier in the campaign, Barca came from behind to register a 3-1 win at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Here's how they line up:

Real Madrid: Navas, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Nacho, Kroos, Casemiro, Modric, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; S. Roberto, Piqué, Umtiti, J. Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Coutinho, Iniesta; Messi, Luis Suárez.

@Pirates_999 Well some people prioritize a tournament they win without facing their fiercest rivals. The reason is they are not good enough to win against their best rivals. The last three CL Real won the did not have to face Barca and back in 2011 when they faced Barca in CL all they could do is swim in the green grass to get a hold of a certain Messi, their Nemesis. Barca won the la liga 7 out of the last ten and faced Rm 14 times. The liga is a tournament, CL is just a show where you depend on favorable draws and can win it without even facing a tough opponent if you are lucky enough.

Everything about the El Clasico is personal nowadays, there's no more such thing as sportsmanship, there's just so much hate and it doesn't look like it's gonna change anytime soon

@Zly30 We don't care about beating Barcows if they already won the La Liga we wanna beat Liverpool, our priorities differ in football maybe your teams priority was to finish unbeaten in La Liga while Madrid's priority is to win 3rd UCL in a row. It will always be like that, some teams wants the best whilst others settle for less
