Xavi teases the starting lineup for Barcelona vs Real Madrid.

Next up for Barcelona is a visit from Real Madrid to the Montjuic Stadium. This El Clasico, which is slated for October 28th, might be very important for La Liga. Real Madrid and Barcelona will both want to take home the trophy because there is just one point separating the top four teams.

A few unanswered questions remain, though. Barcelona must continue to be concerned about the injured players and modify their game plan accordingly.

However, they won’t be able to start the game even if they manage to arrive in time to be added to the squad list.

Compiling the roster

An indication of the starting lineup for El Clasico may be inferred from the most recent game versus Shakhtar Donetsk.

Marc Andre Ter Stegen will undoubtedly be involved. The German custodian will be relied upon for the match against Los Blancos, just as he has been all season. Conversely, the defence is a topic that is intriguing and amenable to many viewpoints.

Turnovers and exhaustion

Since Alejandro Balde and Andreas Christensen are rested against Shakhtar, their participation appears to be all but assured.

The two remaining places will probably be filled by Joao Cancelo and Ronald Araujo.

But if Araujo is used as the starting right-back, Xavi may decide to employ Cancelo in a more advanced capacity and perhaps start Inigo Martinez again.

missing slots
It appears that two players are already assured spots in the midfield. Along with Ilkay Gundogan, who will likely return from his earlier suspension, the club will benefit from his quality and experience. Fermin Lopez and Oriol Romeu will compete for the last midfield position.

Finally, Ferran Torres and Joao Felix will have at least two slots on the front line. Both the Spanish attacker and the Portuguese star took blows against Shakhtar, but they will be totally fit for Real Madrid.

However, the last spot on the frontline will have to be chosen closer to kickoff. Since Lamine Yamal played the entire game against Shakhtar, it appears like Fermin Lopez has a better chance of getting off to a start.
