Tonight, the highly-anticipated football game, El Clásico, between Barcelona and Real Madrid. Tonight's game is part of Copa del Rey's semi-final.

The previous round of the game took place at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium last month and ended with a victory for the Catalonian team 1-0.

So, Carlo Ancelotti needs to pick a victory tonight to overturn their Copa del Rey deficit.

On his choices for the Royal club's midfield, Ancelotti said: “Kroos and Modric are untouchable but that doesn't mean they're going to play tomorrow. There are many untouchables but then you have to choose an eleven. I have to think about the resources I have on the bench. Starting isn't the most important thing.”

Antonio Rudiger is expected to return from injury, on the other hand, Lucas Vazquez should continue ahead of Dani Carvajal on the right. 

Barcelona will have the game without Pedri, Andreas Christensen, Frenkie de Jong, and Ousmane Dembele.

Raphinha will be back from a ban, so, Ferran Torres and Ansu Fati will be in strife with him to have an appearance in the El Clásico.

Predicted Lineups for both teams are as follows:

Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen; Araujo, Kounde, Alonso, Balde; Roberto, Busquets, Kessie; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Gavi.

Real Madrid XI: Courtois; Vazquez, Militao, Rudiger, Mendy; Kroos, Modric; Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius; Benzema.
