Barcelona and Real Madrid are set to square off yet again.

Another day, another edition of El Clasico. This will be the second of three matchups between the two rivals over a five-week span, with Tuesday's clash the second leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals. Saturday evening sees the two face off in a match in La Liga.

The first leg of this cup tie was intriguing, as hosts Real required a Raphael Varane header within the last 10 minutes to salvage a 1-1 draw. Barcelona would have been hoping for more, but they at least have a vital away goal.

In the end, there's still everything to play for at the Camp Nou. Draws could send the tie either way depending on how high-scoring it is, while both teams will surely want to defeat their enemies. In order to do so, they'll have to make some big decisions when setting up their squads.

Here's a look at some of the key choices Jordi Roura and Jose Mourinho will have to think about.
