Real Madrid can close the gap on Barcelona to a mere one point with a win, and they are favourites to do so with Betfair placing them at 11/8 to come out on top.

However, this El Clasico will have an added edge to it, with the possibility of a Barcelona debut for £75million man Luis Suarez on the cards.

Suarez is currently serving a ban for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini in this summer's World Cup, but his ban is set to end on October 24th - the day before El Clasico. Although, according to Delporte de Ley, Suarez' ban should still apply on October 25th, ruling him out of the encounter.

Betfair hold Suarez as third favourite to open the scoring - behind Ronaldo and Messi - at 11/2 on Saturday, and the Uruguayan is a long 40/1 to net a hat-trick on his debut for the Catalan giants.

Suarez specials

Other Suarez specials include him to become an instant hero and bag the winner at 17/2, and the bookmakers have him at a huge 500/1 to reveal a Chiellini themed shirt as a goal celebration.

Real Madrid host Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu at 17:00 on Saturday, where the world's best players will go head to head for the first time this season.

Can Barcelona extend their lead over Madrid to seven points, or will an inform Los Blancos side prove too much for the Catalans?
