BAR vs RM Dream11 Prediction: All the momentum is with Barcelona coming into this edition of El Clasico as their form under Ronald Koeman has surprised many after the tumultuous off-season while Real have lost their last two. The losses at home to Cadiz last weekend and then to an injury-hit Shakhtar side in the Champions League have piled the pressure on Zinedine Zidane after a solid start to the season. They go to the Camp Nou needing to avoid defeat and the pressure is all on them here. Barcelona had a hiccup of their own against Getafe last weekend but they responded in style in midweek and the mood in the camp is reasonably good. Much will depend on how Real approach this game and the signs are that they will go somewhat defensive and potentially even add another midfielder for a forward and congest the middle of the park. They desperately need Sergio Ramos back for his leadership and if he does miss out, it is hard to make a case for them here. Their motivation will be high as it always is for this game and they will focus on keeping things tight first and foremost. Let’s take a look at BAR vs RM Dream11 Team prediction now.
Date: 24 October, Saturday
Time: 7:30 pm IST
Match: Barcelona vs Real Madrid
Place: Camp Nou, Barcelona
Head to Head:
Barcelona wins: 2
Real Madrid wins: 1
Barcelona Team News
Barcelona is at the mid-table spot after taking 7 points from 2 wins and a draw in 4 appearances so far this season in the campaign. Having conceded just 2 goals so far, they are still looking sharp in their defense after all the distress in the camp during the break. The 5-1 win at home against Ferencvaros in the Champions League group stage will not be compelling support for the host ahead of the El Clasico in their league schedule.
Injury update, unavailability
Andre ter Stegen unavailable for the Catalans. Samuel Umtiti is also injured and will not feature in the squad this week.
BAR Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Neto; Sergi Roberto, Pique, Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Busquets, De Jong; Griezmann, Coutinho, Ansu Fati; Messi
Subs (probable): Collado, Puig, Dembele
Real Madrid Team News
Real Madrid has dropped two spots to third place in the table with their last defeat in the league. They have picked up 10 points from their 5 league clashes until now. Zidane’s 14-game unbeaten run in the campaign ended with the 0-1 loss at home to Cadiz in the previous encounter. Ramos’s penalty conversion is a great asset to the team. Benzema is a dependable striker but doesn’t stand out like Cristiano Ronaldo.
Injury update, unavailability
Dani Carvajal and Alvaro Odriozola sidelined for this game. Eden Hazard and Martin Odegaard have been unable to recover in time and will not feature against Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
RM Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Courtois; Nacho, Varane, Sergio Ramos, Mendy; Valverde, Casemiro; Marco Modric, Kroos; Benzema, Vinicius
Subs (probable): Isco, Goes, Reinier

A case can be made for either to pick up all three points, and Barca were impressive in the Champions League during the week. Koeman’s side are still working their way into the new campaign, though, and we are expecting a tight and cagey affair. We predict a 2-2 draw in BAR vs RM today match prediction.
