Lopetegui hopes to save Madrid's season_ and job_ at Barca

Lionel Messi Real Madrid's Thibaut Courtois threatens to sue Spanish paper for Mourinho, Conte claims

Spanish La Liga biggest match will not feature Barcelona's Lionel Messi or Former Real Madrid star Cristiano Roanldo on Sunday's El Clasico clash at Camp Nou, which has been a personal playground for two larger-than-life global icons.

Radja Nainggolan has missed out on a place in Inter's squad for the Champions League fixture against Barcelona due to injury. I expect the best Madrid.

"I think the difference was in the first half, where we didn't play up to Inter standards".

'They believe in me and I believe in them, ' Lopetegui said.

With Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen injured, Clement Lenglet and Gerard Pique will again play in central defence for Barca and will have to be wary of Inter striker Mauro Icardi, who has four goals in Serie A this season and is being touted as a possible future signing for Real Madrid. On Saturday, Athletic Bilbao host fellow surprise strugglers Valencia, while Real Sociedad visit Atletico Madrid in the day's late kick-off.

The influential forward is no stranger to the Clasico atmosphere, having played Real regularly since his first appearance against Los Blancos over a decade ago. We are excited and ready for this game. And we want to bring some joy to our fans, and this is the ideal game for that.

Real Madrid's defender Sergio Ramos (C) heads a ball to score the equalizer past Real Madrid's French defender Raphael Varane (3rdL) and Barcelona's Argentinian defender Javier Mascherano (R) during the Spanish league football match FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid CF at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on December 3, 2016.

A win will ease the pressure off the manager's back and the fans will have the first bragging rights at their oppositions.

"We need to gain a little tranquillity bit by bit: we have to keep going". We have a certain style, then Messi gives us a touch of brilliance that is extraordinary. "It's such a big game, and the whole world wants to watch it".

Messi cheered and lifted his good left arm in victory after his teammates showed more than enough class to convincingly beat Inter Milan 2-0 even without its best player.

"The Champions League is special for us, although the other competitions are also very important".
