The duel between Real Madrid and Barcelona on Saturday is not only about the eternal rivalry between the two giants, but possibly also about a preliminary decision in the fight for the championship.

Karim Benzema didn't even bother to downplay the importance of the game. "For me and everyone, it's the biggest game in the world," said the Real Madrid striker. For the French and his team, the highlight of the season is on Saturday evening (live on blue TV from 8:45 p.m.): The Clasico, the clash between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, ​​which also casts a spell on football fans outside of Spain .

The 246th clash is about three important points in the fight for the championship title. With nine laps to go, the recently ailing leader Atlético is one point ahead of Barcelona and two more ahead of their city rivals. The duel between the two top clubs is not just about football, but also about the cultural and political rivalry between the two largest cities in Spain and between Catalonia, which is striving for independence, and the country's capital.

Both teams have to do without important players. Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman will have to do without Philippe Coutinho and youngster Ansu Fati, who are still sidelined with meniscus injuries. Zinédine Zidane is likely to have a team similar to the one last seen in the 3-1 win in the Champions League against Liverpool. However, three important players are still missing in defense: the injured Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal and Raphael Varane, who tested positive for the corona virus.

Despite many personal problems in recent weeks, Los Blancos have risen from the sporting point of view. After a resinous start to the season and almost failure in the preliminary round of the Champions League, Zidane has brought Real back on track. In the meantime, the Frenchman, who led Real to three Champions League titles from 2016 to 2018, is undisputed again - especially if he should also win the Clasico.
