The Blaugrana will be playing their first El Clasico without their talismanic captain Lionel Messi, who left this summer to join French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain and are still on a transition period - although, they have struggled to match previous standards. Madrid on the other hand, have been on some kind of a transition period but have managed to steady the ship but are still a long way from their imperious best.

PREVIEW: Barcelona Vs Real Madrid- Prediction, Team News And More

Barça began the week with two crucial wins over Valencia in the league last time out and Dynamo Kyiv in the UEFA Champions League. But the performance against Dynamo Kiev raised concerns and doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence, considering how well Los Blancos are playing at the moment. They have won only one of their last three games, but their 5-0 destruction of Shakhtar Donetsk in Europe on Tuesday will provide the much needed confidence boost.

Real Madrid are in great shape and just can’t stop scoring - with Karim Benzema and Vinicius Júnior dominating every defense they face. It is no secret that Barcelona's defense has been poor and utterly terrible this season, and the prospect of those two facing the Blaugrana backline is scary.

Madrid’s midfield continues to be as crucial as ever to their success, and new summer recruit David Alaba has ably fit in. Coach Carlo Ancelotti can call upon the legendary midfield trio of Luka Modric, Casemiro and Toni Kroos, which could prove the difference, although he has to find solutions about his shaky defence.

Barcelona vs Real Madrid: El Clasico team news and prediction

Ronald Koeman has endured a tough start to the season and has been on the verge of losing his job on several occasions this campaign. There's also dissatisfaction on the coach amongst the supporters, about the Dutchman not helping the upcoming crop of players settle into life at one of the world’s biggest clubs.

Ansu Fati marked his first start back after 10 months out with an injury with a fine goal against Valencia last Sunday, and his combination with Memphis Depay will surely be vital, if Barcelona are to get anything from the game. Also, Philippe Coutinho’s goal against Valencia and Sergio Aguero’s debut for the Catalan giants could bode well for the future, although Barca’s new found confidence will be shattered if they are defeated in Sunday’s showdown.

Madrid are big favorites coming into this one and have a lot going well for them, but Barça are at home and will relish the chance to play the underdog role which might spur them to come up with a big victory. The difference between both teams is on the sidelines: Carlo Ancelotti has revitalized Madrid after an inconsistent campaign last season under Zinedine Zidane, and has made an impact not only on the team as a whole but in individual players such as Vinicius Jr, who is all of a sudden one of Europe’s best finishers.
