This is Barcelona v Real Madrid. This is El Clasico... but not like you've known it before.


This is only the second derby clash between the fierce Spanish rivals that hasn't featured Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo since 2007.

Sergio Ramos, gone. Luis Suarez, gone. Andres Iniesta, gone. Icons from both sides departed, a void left to be filled by the next big thing.

In Barcelona's corner, Pedri and Ansu Fati represent glimmers of hope in an ultimately gloomy state of affairs for the club overall. They sit seventh in La Liga with just four wins from nine outings.

Real Madrid boast Vinicius Junior and Eduardo Camavinga among their ranks but seasoned superstar, the ever-reliable Karim Benzema is the man keeping the Spanish giants among the elite pack in La Liga.

Former Everton bosses Ronald Koeman and Carlo Ancelotti will be desperate for a victory here to further their causes. They need heroes to stand up and be counted on Sunday. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Barcelona v Real Madrid on TV and online.

Our prediction: Barcelona v Real Madrid

The last encounter between these sides without either Messi or Ronaldo saw Barca fall back on Luis Suarez, who slammed home a hat-trick in a 5-1 victory.

Now, the Catalan giants are without such a luxury. Sergio Aguero made his debut in a victory over Valencia last weekend but he is unlikely to be fit or sharp enough to make an enormous impact this weekend, though what a time it would be to do so.

In the cold light of day, Barcelona are increasingly 'just another team' in La Liga without Messi. They will acutely feel the lack of his presence this weekend and the old master Benzema could be the man to seize the day at the Nou Camp.

Our prediction: Barcelona 0-2 Real Madrid (9/1 at bet365)
