Los Blancos secured a necessary win over Eibar last weekend by two goals to nil. Marcos Asencio and Karim Benzema scored their winning goal at their home turf. Unfortunately, they are still sitting on the third of the table.

Blaugrana also sealed an important win while hosting Real Valladolid. They had to wait till the last minute to break the deadlock through Ousmane Dembele’s close range shot. Such victory has brought Lionel Messi and Co closer to La Liga leaders by one point margin only.

Possible tactic

Zinedine Zidane might be opting for 3-4-2-1 again with Karim Benzema upfront supported by Vinicius Junior and Marco Asencio behind the Frenchman. The only concern from Madrid is the absence of Sergio Ramos, along with Daniel Carvajal plus Eden Hazard who are still injured.

Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman would still be deploying 3-4-2-1 with Messi-Griezmann and behind Ousmane Dembele upfront. In the midfield, Pedri and Sergio Busquets will still be operating in the middle while Jordi Alba and Sergino Dest are occupying the flanks. Frankie de Jong would be dropping off as the centre back as well as defensive midfielder. On their injury table, there are Gerard Pique, Sergi Roberto, Ansu Fati and Phillipe Coutinho and Moussa Wague who are still ruled out for this fixture.
