It is a decisive party in which the Barcelona have the opportunity to surpass to the Madrilenian in the classification. Both teams arrive after victories in the Champions League (Madrid 0-5 in front of the Shakhtar and Barça 1-0 in front of the Dynamo of Kiev), but... Who arrives better reinforced to the most expected appointment of the European football?

In the side of the venues, Ronald Koeman arrives with important drops, but with also good news. The first, is the more than possible drop of Jordi Alba, the one who seems to have again physical problems, after alone two parties from his return of his injury. The left side suffered annoyances during the crash, but could finalise. However, everything seems to indicate to that the international by Spain will not be able to be available to receive to the eternal rival this Sunday. To this, it is necessary to add him the drops of Pedri González and Ousmane Dembélé.

In the case of the midfield player, has almost impossible to play against the Madrid, since it is training to the margin and not even is doing exercises with balloon, by what is very complicated that it can be available for the Sunday. It is one very bad news for Koeman, because Pedri is a headline 'fixed' for the Barça. The option is that Gavi play in his position, and has fulfilled well, as it already accustoms since it debuted in the first team. In the case of 'Dombouz', is still in his process of recovery of the desincersión of the sinew of the biceps in the right knee that suffered in the Eurocopa and still has not received the high medical.

In spite of the ráfaga of bad news, there is space for the optimism, because Koeman has a few 'cracks' in the changing room, beginning by Ansu Fati, the one who is back and can be headline against the Madrid. In his last Classical, annotated to equalise the marker after the so much initial of Fede Valverde, in a party in which the Barcelona fell 1-3. The canterano is to 100% and paints to be key in the clash. It will be his first big party with the number '10' to his backs.

To this, it is necessary to add him the big level of Sergiño Dest playing like right extreme, that has been a big tarpaulin of Ronald Koeman. The international by United States is more effective in the offensive that defending, by what all aims that it will play beside Memphis and Ansu in the forward. Likewise, it will be Gavi, the one who has turned into one of the new stars of the team in front of the absence of Pedri González.

The 'signings' of Ancelotti

The Real Madrid arrives with better news that the Barça to the Camp Nou. The ones of Carlo Ancelotti golearon to the Shakhtar by five goals and with a party that left good news to the Italian technician: they suffered little in defence, the centre of the historical field of Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric went back to be effective and in the offensive, Benzema, Rodrygo and Vinícius Jr shined in the last metres and carried out a clash that in the previous sounded as complicated, considering how suffered the past year.

Nevertheless, that is not the only good news for the Madrid. Ancelotti Has recovered to Ferland Mendy, the one who carried five months without playing, but that returned to 101% and has been very firm against the Shakhtar, so much in the defence as in the attack. This caused that it Praises had less work and could focus more in his function like head office, beside Eder Militao. Besides, Ancelotti will recover, possibly, to Dani Carvajal and Eden Hazard.
