Saturday offers a chance for football fans all over the world to enjoy one of the most recognised rivalry in history.

Many may argue that Barcelona have been the clear favourites for the past few years, but this Real Madrid team has a new look and style to them. 

The acquisition of Welshman Gareth Bale, has given Carlo Ancelotti's side a fierce, potent look. However, the winger had been battling with injuries since he arrived at the Spanish Capital, due to the fact that he spent most of the summer trying to force a move to the Los Merengues.

But, with Bale publicly admitting that he's fit enough to start at the Camp Nou, Barcelona might also have to worry about him as well as Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese star has been in dazzling form, and looks likely to be on the score sheet at the end of the 90 minutes. After defeating Juventus 2-1 on Wednesday, Madrid will arrive to the match filled with confidence.

Barcelona, on the other hand, will be looking to make up for poor results. After a 0-0 draw against Osasuna on Saturday, and a 1-1 draw against AC Milan on Tuesday, the fans will be expecting plenty from Gerardo Martino's players. 

A plus for the Barca team, is the fact that Lionel Messi is back from injury after playing against Milan in the Champions League. With Leo and Neymar, Barcelona fans can fear a strong Madrid team much less now. 

Final Prediction:

Real Madrid to go back home with a 2-0 win. 


Real Madrid arrive with more confidence and better form than the home team. Nevertheless, fans can still expect a cracking game of football.
