It will be the fourth ‘el classico’ between the two clubs in a possible eight encounters this season.

The Special one, who has only won once against Barca in eight encounters since his arrival at the club two years ago said: “How many titles must I have on my CV in order not to put my life and my career at stake for one match?

‘‘There’s nothing at stake. I play every game exactly the same, only my personal satisfaction is at stake”.

Real welcome Barca to the Santiago Bernabeu in a rich vein of form having won 22 of their last 23 matches in all competitions. Their only hiccup was a 3-1 la liga defeat to their Catalan rivals six weeks ago.
