“Barcelona’s recovery owes far more to Real’s decline than their own merits. Real’s slip ups have strengthened Barca, who put in an abysmal performance against Napoli.”

Both sides head into Sunday’s game with selection issues, with Real light on forwards due to the absence of Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard and Rodrygo.

Barca, meanwhile, need to fill holes all over the pitch, with Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto, Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez all injured and Gerard Pique facing a battle to be fit.
