Both teams come into this game on the back of disappointing midweek Champions League results, having drawn when a win was most needed.
Real Madrid needed a late equalizer to draw 1-1 at Shakhtar Donetsk, as did Barcelona, whose late goal could only earn a 3-3 draw at home to Inter Milan.
However, their form in the league has been excellent as both teams sit together at the top of La Liga after an unbeaten start to the 2022/23 season.
Both Real Madrid and Barcelona have added 22 of a possible total of 24 points each in LaLiga, having won seven and drawn one each.
However, Barcelona are currently ahead on goal difference, with 20 goals making them the best attack in the league and they have also conceded just once in eight games, making them the best defense in the league as well. .
Although Barca’s stellar form has only been in the league, Real Madrid have been imperious in all competitions with 11 wins and two draws in each match this season so far.
This encounter has tilted Real Madrid’s path in recent years, as they have beaten Barcelona in five of the last six competitive Clásicos.
Real Madrid’s biggest casualty ahead of the Clasico is Thibaut Courtois, the Belgian starting goalkeeper who is unavailable for the squad due to a muscle injury, meaning substitute Andriy Lunin will most likely be in goal.
Dani Ceballos is also unavailable for Los Blancos with a thigh injury, but he is a secondary player who probably wouldn’t have featured even when fit.
Barcelona would be relieved to welcome back Jules Kounde after his injury at the best possible time, but other important defenders, Ronald Araujo and Andreas Christensen, remain injured.
Dutch striker Memphis Depay and Spanish right-back Héctor Bellerín are also unavailable due to injury and most likely will not feature at the Santiago Bernabéu on Sunday.
