FC Barcelona XI vs Real Madrid: Confirmed squad news, predicted roster, latest injury for El Clasico game today

Robert Lewandowski and Jordi Alba returned from national suspension for the dramatic penalty shootout win over Real Betis in Saudi Arabia.

Given the importance of this game, Barca boss Xavi is expected to name a strong starting line-up as he bids to win the first trophy of the season and his first in charge of the Blaugrana.

Frenkie de Jong joined forces with Gavi and Pedri in midfield just days ago and it looks like the strongest trio available to Xavi, although Sergio Busquets’ big-game experience provides some competition.

Sergi Roberto was forced to leave injured which means there could be a defensive reshuffle tonight. Elsewhere, Raphinha and Ansu Fati are battling for the final spot alongside Lewandowski and Ousmane Dembele in the top three.

Predicts Barcelona XI (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Araujo, Christensen, Garcia, Alba; DeJong, Pedri, Gavi; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Dembele.
