Los Merengues currently sit third in La Liga, a whopping 10 points behind their rivals, ahead of Saturday’s showdown at the Camp Nou.
While the match may represent an opportunity for Los Blancos to close the gap on the league leaders and revive their feint hopes of winning a record 33rd Spanish title, Real will also be keen to make amends for their humiliation at the hands of their old enemy earlier in the season.
The capital club were outclassed 4-0 at the hands of Barca at the Bernabeu earlier in the campaign, with Luis Suarez (twice), Neymar and Andres Iniesta scoring the goals to put Real to the sword.
Rafael Benitez paid with his job soon afterwards, and the dye was cast for another disappointing campaign for Florentino Perez’s juggernauts.

Speaking to Real Madrid TV [as per the club’s official YouTube channel], defender Ramos has insisted that he and his teammates are desperate for revenge on Saturday.
“After the bad result of the first Clasico, football can give us revenge, and on Saturday we have the opportunity of playing away from home against a great team like Barcelona,” the international began, speaking to Real’s official TV channel.
“We want to do things right,” he continued.
