Team news

Real Madrid currently have no new injury concerns but will still be without captain Sergio Ramos, who is missing with a calf problem.

Dani Carvajal also remains on the sidelines but Zinedine Zidane is hoping to welcome back Eden Hazard, though the winger may only be fit enough for a place on the bench.

Meanwhile Barcelona have long-term absentees Ansu Fati and Philippe Coutinho unavailable with Ronald Koeman sweating on the fitness of three other stars.

Gerard Pique is the biggest concern but the Spaniard is expected to be fit in time, while Sergi Roberto and Neto could also be named among the substitutes.
