Real Madrid host Barcelona in a decisive El Clasico this Saturday —13:00— and neither Samuel Umtiti, Ousmane Dembele or Paco Alcacer will be available to face Los Blancos at the Bernabeu. Jordi Alba finally was able to make the list.

Here’s Barcelona’s squad list, published on their official website.

Ter Stegen, Semedo, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio, Denis, A. Iniesta, Suárez, Messi, Cillessen, Mascherano, Paulinho, Jordi Alba, Digne, S. Roberto, A. Gomes, Aleix Vidal and Vermaelen.

Real Madrid have a healthier roster than Barcelona at the moment and it will be interesting to see if Los Blancos can take advantage of Thomas Vermaelen almost surely getting a place in Ernesto Valverde’s starting XI.

Zidane’s men need to get the win if they want to compete for this La Liga title. Dropping points here would be devastating for their title hopes as Barcelona would be 14 points ahead —with one game for Madrid still to be played though—.
