Barcelona Futbol Club, will definitely go in to tomorrow night's Clasico clash with Real Madrid with a definitive advantage. With a point lead at the top of the La Liga table, Barcelona doesn't have to chase this game where as Real Madrid would definitely love to go on top of the table following this match. With only ten matches left after this one in the League both team may have not much leverage left after this. Looking at the remaining fixture both teams have their share of tough matches after it. So any one emerging as a winner in this match will definitely be on the front foot to regain the La Liga title. The first Clasico was a big disappointment for Barca fans and team with the team being taken apart by the Los Blancos. But after the Winter break, the form of both the teams have changed drastically. Barca inspired by Messi is in a roll where as Real Madrid like his talisman Ronaldo is struggling a bit.

FC Barcelona following a majestic performance against Manchester City in the mid week is pretty much in top form going into this clash. The kind of form Lionel Messi is in, may be we could see a repeat of midweek's performance. As far as the line-up is considered there won't be much change in personal compared to midweek encounter with English Champions. The front trio is certain to be Messi, Neymar and Saurez. And Messi definitely will start on right. With Busquets out with injury Mascherano will have to play the defensive midfielder role. Iniesta has been magical at the Camp Nou in the midweek and his spot in midfield is pretty much ensured. The other midfield role will be a choice between Rakitic and Xavi Hernandez. Considering Rakitic's recent form, Xavi Hernandez may have to start the match from bench. The defense definitely will have Mathieu, Pique, Alves and Alba. In the goal it will be once again Bravo, it is surprising that many media outlets think Ter Stegan will start. It just simply show how little they follow La liga.

Real Madrid despite their recent form will be a complete outfit when it come to tomorrow's encounter. The return of Modric from injury will definitely bolster Real madrid system. Ancelotti may go with a 4-4-2 formation which he employed against Barca last time we visited Bernebeu. The defense will be simply Pepe, ramos, carvajal and Marcelo. The midfield should be Modric, Kroos,Bale and Isco. The front two should be Benzema and Ronaldo.

Without a classic defensive midfielder Real madrid could be exposed in midfield if we press them well. With a 4-4-2 lineup they may have a man advantage in midfield. this makes it very much important form Messi to make those marauding dropping runs in and from the midfield. That may become crucial in us dominating the game. Once again the Clasico will d=be defined by who impose themselves in the midfield. if we let Madrid do that, with their pace on the flanks we will be welcoming danger. Instead if Messi inspired midfield over run their midfield we may see a repeat of midweek performance.
