LaLiga

Teams: Real Madrid v FC Barcelona

Date: 10 April 2021

Venue: Estadio Alfredo di Stefano

With LaLiga leaders Atletico Madrid dropping points in recent weeks, both El Clasico sides have got the title in their sights, with second-place Barcelona sitting one point behind the leaders while Los Blancos sit three points adrift in third.

Madrid come into the encounter unbeaten in their last 12 matches across all competitions, which includes a 3-1 win over Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League this week.

Likewise, the Catalan giants are yet to test defeat in 2021 and extended their unbeaten run to 19 matches with a 1-0 win over Real Valladolid on Monday night.

The clash will also see some of the league's top scorers go head-to-head as Lionel Messi leads the scoring charts with 23 goals, five goals ahead of Los Blancos' Karim Benzema.

Messi will also look to extend his record as top scorer in El Clasico history as he currently sits on 26 goals while Benzema will be aiming to add his nine goals against the Catalan giants.

Here's how they line up:

Real Madrid: Courtois , Lucas Vázquez, Nacho, Militao, Mendy, Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Vinicius, Benzema.

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Araujo, Lenglet; Dest, Busquets, Pedri, De Jong, Jordi Alba; Messi, Dembélé
