The first Clasico of 2014-15 is almost upon us and the stage is set for an enthralling battle at the Santiago Bernabeu this weekend. Barcelona have started the better of La Liga's giants, winning seven of their eight league games and not conceding a single goal, with summer signing Claudio Bravo proving an unpassable object between Camp Nou's sticks. However, the Blancos have responded to an early wobble by winning eight clashes in a row heading into the Clasico, scoring 13 times in their last three matches alone. As ever, the tussle between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is a key talking point ahead of the showdown. Messi is just one goal shy of Telmo Zarra's all-time Liga goalscoring record - and who would bet against him creating more history in Madrid? Ronaldo has been even more prolific in 2014-15 - he has bagged 20 goals in just 13 matches - although Luis Enrique also has Neymar to fall back on for Barca ammunition, with the Brazilian having struck 10 times already this season. And don't forget about a certain Luis Suarez, who could feature for the first time in an official Barcelona game as his four-month biting ban comes to an end. Carlo Ancelotti's men lost this identical clash last season in a thrilling 4-3 result in Barca's favour and neutrals will be hoping for a similar number of goals this time around. So who do you think will come out on top on Saturday? Can Barca continue their unbeaten streak with a win? Will Real Madrid reduce La Liga's deficit at the top to one point? Or will the spoils be shared at the Bernabeu? Vote in our poll and let us know in the comment section below!
