Real Madrid team news: Attacking duo will miss El Clasico vs Barcelona

La Liga title candidates Real Madrid will play against Barcelona in the Spanish top-flight at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Sunday. 

Both of the teams have been underwhelming by their standards this season even though they are in first and second place on the league standings respectively.

The result of the game will be crucial in terms of determining who wins the La Liga this season.

Madrid enter the clash two points adrift of Barcelona in second place on the standings. A victory for Zinedine Zidane’s side will take them to the top of the log.

Barcelona enter the clash after having won their last four consecutive league games. Madrid have failed to pick up wins from their previous two La Liga games and enter the game on the back of a shock 1-0 defeat against Levante.

Madrid’s Eden Hazard will miss the game due to injury, according to BBC Sport.

The report added that Rodrygo will also miss the game due to a suspension after he was sent off whilst playing for the club’s B team last weekend.

As with all El Clasico’s, the game promises to be a great one. The last time that the sides met was in December when they played out to a 0-0 stalemate in what was the first goalless draw between the teams since 2002.

Both teams will be going all out to win the game.

A win will not only give the victor three points but it will also give them a psychological advantage in the race to be crowned La Liga champions.
