Here is Balague’s combined El Clasico XI:
GK) Keylor Navas
An unusual choice considering he is not even the first choice for Real Madrid at the moment.
RB) Dani Carvajal
The right back position is arguably one of the weakest positions for both sides, but Carvajal is the first choice of many.
CB) Sergio Ramos
One of the best centre-backs around at the moment, understandably the first choice at the back.
Another controversial choice by the Spanish journalist, with most fans and pundits favourite Raphael Varane or Jeremy Mathieu.
LB) Jordi Alba
The pacy left-back is both solid defensively and devastating going forward. First choice over Marcelo.
