Barcelona vs Real Madrid team news

Pedri will miss out for Barcelona after withdrawing from Spain duty with a hamstring injury and then being omitted from Xavi’s matchday group.

Ousmane Dembele will also miss out having suffered a setback in his own comeback bid, but Ronald Araujo is back from suspension and top scorer Robert Lewandowski fit.

For Madrid, Karim Benzema was once again an injury doubt having picked up a leg knock against Liverpool in midweek, but he’s fit to play tonight.

Ferland Mendy could start after making the bench in that game, leaving David Alaba and Alvaro Rodriguez as the only other concerns for Carlo Ancelotti.
