The teams have already met once this season, with the Catalan club defeating their bitter rivals 5-1 in a LaLiga fixture at the Camp Nou in October.
Lionel Messi was unavailable for that fixture due to injury, and was unable to add to his tally of 26 goals against Los Blancos as a result. The 31-year-old is the leading goalscorer in Clasico history, leading the way by eight strikes.
Real legend Alfredo Di Stefano scored 18 times against the Blaugrana during what was a stellar career, while Cristiano Ronaldo struck on 17 occasions in the fixture.
The fourth leading scorer in the clash is legendary Real striker and captain Raul Gonzalez, who found the back of the net 15 times, while next is on the list is Cesar Rodriguez Alvarez with 14 goals.
