Barcelona and Real Madrid are both set to battle once again this Sunday on the pitch at Camp Nou. Barça have an eight-point La Liga lead over Madrid, and could make it 11 if they win at home this weekend.
But one thing's for sure: It won't come easy for the Catalans. Carles Puyol is out with an injury suffered this Wednesday against Benfica, whilst Andrés Iniesta has just recovered from a setback of his own.
Barcelona has seven players who are almost guaranteed to start: Victor Valdés, Dani Alves, Javier Mascherano, Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Pedro and Messi. For the other four starting players, Tito Vilanova will have to make some key decisions to impact the game.
