The game is crucial for both teams because they struggled in the UEFA Champions League midweek, only picking up draws, and they will be looking to get back on track.
The La Liga table is incredibly tight right now, and after eight games, Barcelona is leading and Real Madrid is second, but only on goals differential because they both have 22 points.
They have a long history together, and their match has created some of the most fascinating spectacles. We hope that the forthcoming El Classico will be similar.
