Real Madrid Starting XI:

Real Madrid lacked intensity last time Barcelona dropped points and ended up losing 1-0 to Villarreal. They will need to improve that aspect of their game as Valencia have not lost a home match for more than a year. Gary Neville's side is not playing very well lately but their intensity and firepower off set pieces could be dangerous for Madrid. Either way, this is a crucial match for Real Madrid and one that could seal Benítez's fate if Los Blancos can't get all three points available.
