Before overcoming Valencia at home, Barcelona had lost two games in a row in La Liga and the Champions League, to Atletico Madrid and SL Benfica, respectively. They had gotten off to a fantastic start with a three-game winning streak. They are, however, beginning to fade away as a result of losses and draws. They are currently in seventh place in La Liga with 15 points from eight games, after four victories, one loss, and three draws. They hold the best home record in the league, with four wins and a draw. They’ve scored an average of 1.75 goals per game while allowing only one goal per game. Memphis Depay, who has three goals to his name, is the team’s highest goal scorer. With two goals each, Martin Brathwaite, Ansu Fati, and Sergi Roberto have all contributed. Ronald Araujo, Pedri, Martin Brathwaite, and Moussa Wague are the four injured players for Barcelona.
Real Madrid has dropped as many as five points in the last two matches including a draw against Villarreal and a shocking loss to Espanyol in La Liga. But they are coming into this fixture with a thrashing 5-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. They are currently in the second position of La Liga with 17 points from eight matches, including five wins, two draws, and one loss. They have a pretty good away record as they have accumulated ten points from five matches that they have played on the road. With 22 goals scored and only ten goals conceded this season, they are the team with the most goals. Karim Benzema has nine goals and seven assists in the league, making him the league’s top scorer. They have as many as five players on the injury list including Daniel Carvajal, Isco, Gareth Bale, Luka Jovic, and Daniel Ceballos.
