Barcelona and Real Madrid lock horns today in an El Clásico match by 3.15 Nigerian time. Given how this particular fixture has been over the years, we expect lot of exciting moments in the game today. Given the underwhelming record of Barcelona under Ronald Koeman this season, it won't be surprising if a good number of fans tip Real Madrid to win today. This is because, despite losing two game, the Madrid team has been excellent this season.

Since the reappointment of Carlo Ancelotti as the first team manager, Real Madrid have been in a decent run of form. In the 11 matches played so far in all competitions this season, the Italian coach has guided the team to 7 wins, 2 draws and 2 loses. Presently sitting in 4th place, with 17 points in the La Liga table, they have been able to score a total of 22 goals, the highest in the league. Out of these 22 goals, two players (Benzema and Vinicius) scored 14 of them.

These two players have been high prolific in front of goal, and they are considered as Real Madrid's main men. Any day these two players are having a bad day, Madrid tends to struggle to win matches. This notion is evident in the matches against the Sheriff Tiraspol and Espanyol game. So therefore, for Barcelona to attempt stopping the Los Blancos from scoring in today's match, they should man mark Vinicius and Benzema.

Dest should placed on a duty of keeping close contact with Vinicius, while Pique should not let Benzema out of his sight.
