The most crunching and interesting battle of the Spanish top flight will take place on Saturday when Barcelona hosts Real Madrid at the Camp Nou.

Madrid have not had the best of days in last two matchdays losing to Cadiz in the La Liga and the Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League respectively.

Zinedine Zidane and his side are in desperate need of results at the moment after their unconvincing displays in their last two games.

Barcelona occupy the ninth position in the league table after four games played, earning seven points in the process while Madrid have 10 points from five games so far.
