Barcelona potential lineup vs. Real Madrid

Barcelona haven't beaten Real Madrid in their last 4 meetings and have lost to their arch-rival in 3 of those games. Facing Carlo Ancelloti men has come at a tough time when Barcelona are still struggling for form and haven't beaten a top club since Ronald Koeman took over.

The Catalans will want to come up with their best lineup to get at least a point against Los Blancos. And though they don't have some of their best players fit for the game, Koeman still has a squad that can provide a good result.

Ansu Fati didn't start Barcelona's last game against Dynamo Kyiv as the intention was to keep him fit for Sunday's game. He is very likely to start alongside Memphis Depay and Segino Dest who will continue on the right wing.

Koeman will probably continue with the midfielders he used in the last game but Eric Garcia may return in defence to take the place of Clement Lenglet. Oscar Mingueza is expected to play as the right back and Jordi Alba could be fit enough to start on the left.

Barcelona have lost some important games this season but they will a chance to redeem themselves when they welcome Real Madrid to the Camp Nou on Sunday. A win against Carlo Ancelloti men will definitely bolster the team's confidence.
