COUNTDOWN TO THE SPANISH EL CLASICO – Clasico injury report: who’s out, who’s in for eternal rivals

It is billed as the biggest game in the world. Two eternal rivals pitted against each in the race for La Liga. Ask an opposing fan and they will tell you their rival is always in crisis but when injury hits, like it has with both sides recently, it can really mean a crisis.

Playing against either at full strength is difficult enough on its own, but to play without some of the many stars on either side can be a disaster. From a spectacle-standpoint, the viewers want to be as entertained a possible too. That’s why we have put together a list of players injured on either side in order to keep you informed as to who will play in the Clasico. We will update it right up until kick-off at the Camp Nou at 16:15 on Saturday.
