El Clasico: 5 reasons why Barcelona will beat Real Madrid

However, failure to beat Inter just four days before they entertain Real Madrid in "El Clasico" would sow the seeds of doubt ahead of one of their biggest games of the season.

"We did what we had to do during our last two matches in the Champions League against Tottenham and PSV, therefore, the group situation is still positive despite the defeat". But with the forwards that are there, I think they can get back among the goals.

"We were always in the game and had some chances, but they were better".

Also, Madrid's new number 7 and Ronaldo's "successor", Mariano Diaz, will have to prove himself as a potential go-to guy for the team.

Luis Suarez has claimed that it is Barcelona's "turn to win" El Clasico as the Spanish champions prepare to welcome Real Madrid to Camp Nou on Sunday afternoon.

And Baptista does not expect Real to delay Lopetegui's sacking any further if results continue to go against them, and believes ex-midfielder Guti - now coaching at Besiktas - could return to Santiago Bernabeu.

That will make this Clasico the first to be played without either star since 2007.

And we want to bring some joy to our fans, and this is the flawless game for that. For the first time in almost 11 years, the two sides will take to the field with neither Lionel Messi nor Cristiano Ronaldo in their respective squad sheets.

"We need to gain a little tranquillity bit by bit: we have to keep going".

"Messi often gets us out of jail in hard games against low blocks and obviously we want him to get better as soon as possible".

"Of course we miss him, but we want to miss him while winning". Neither of the teams are really enjoying a very good spell of form, but it's fair to say that Barcelona is the better team at this moment among the two. The emotional and mental side are also important, we must have the right attitude, and show maximum respect.
