The last time when these two sides met in La Liga on 24th October 2021, Barca was a struggling team looking to find their strides under Ronald Koeman, and fans were disappointed with their team’s performance and 2-1 defeat from the hands of their arch-rivals. Some angry fans tried to attack Koeman’s car, while he was leaving the stadium, after the defeat.

Barca was in a transition period after the departure of their talisman and Transitions are never easy. Fast forward to the upcoming Clasico, everything has changed. Xavi has surprised us all and he has turned things around quicker than anyone expected. Barca’s winter signings have also played a major role. In actuality, Xavi has made a couple of years’ progress in a four-month spell and now they are becoming a force again.

Real Madrid is on their second-longest El Clasico streak without losing ever, having won 5 and drawn one game in the last 6 Clasicos. The best run came between 1962 and 1965 when the club won 7 straight Clasicos.

Real Madrid is going through a good patch and is full of confidence after eliminating PSG in the Champions League although they are facing some injury problems ahead of this game. Karim Benzema’s participation in this match is still a doubt and Ferland Mendy is out of this game because he suffered an abductor injury. Despite their comfortable lead in the La Liga points table, Carlo Ancelotti considers El Clasico as a final, and he has communicated that to his team.
