Unlike unbeaten Real Madrid, Barca have recorded two defeats so far but they also won almost every other game this term quite convincingly and that gives them reason for confidence before the match with Real. Pep Guardiola will have almost full squad to choose from, with Gaby Millito the only player on the sidelines. It’s been a while since Barca entered El Clasico from the second place in the standings, so the Catalans are bound to feel some pressure, but after five straight victories in which the team scored no less than 22 goals, the players can be forgiven for being extremely high on confidence.

Barca haven’t played a lot of big matches this season, so this is going to be a big test for them, but if anyone can beat Real Madrid this season, it is Barcelona. All eyes will be on Camp Nou Monday evening, where Barcelona will play host to bitter rivals Real Madrid in one of the most highly anticipated El Clasicos ever. The attacking trio of Messi, Villa and Pedro works like a charm at the moment and they are going to seriously test Real’s unbeaten run, obviously with help from midfield maestros Xavi and Iniesta, with Sergio Busquets doing the dirty work in front of the back four. This will be much more than just a football match for both sides and their fans, but first and foremost we should see an enthralling encounter between two high-flying teams.

Los Merengues had no problems winning those small games this term but all that hard work will go to waste unless they take at least one point from Camp Nou.

Jose Mourinho doesn’t have too many selection problems since Sami Khedira and Gonzalo Higuain should return to the side, but Kaka and Gago remain sidelined. The Cristiano Ronaldo effect shouldn’t be taken lightly as his magnificent showings definitely helped Real dislodge Barca from the top of La Liga.

The Portuguese coach was, however, given an excellent squad to work with after Florentino Perez had bought Ozil, Khedira, Di Maria and Carvalho among others, but he, nonetheless, have to be given credit for turning traditional underachievers into one of the best sides on the continent. Jose Mourinho showed just what a little bit of discipline and hard work can do after taking charge of Real, who clearly look like a different team this season.
