Real Madrid arrived to the city of Barcelona without Nuri Sahin, Ricardo Carvalho, Lass Diarrá and Hamit Altintop. These four players are out of the list and will not be on the bench against FC Barcelona.

Some people speculated about Madrid playing with a Lass-Khedira-Alonso midfield, but the only possibility of a 4-3-3 now relies with Khedira and Alonso playing beside Fábio Coentrao, with Marcelo playing in his natural left back position.

Lineups are still unknown, and the fans will have to wait until about 19:00 CET to get official confirmation.
