Barcelona welcome bitter rivals Real Madrid to Catalonia for the fourth Clasico of the season.

Xavi's men have won two of their encounters with Los Blacos this term - the Supercopa de Espana final and their recent Copa del Rey semi-final first leg - with Carlo Ancelotti's charges taking the three points in their La Liga meeting back in the capital.

With Barcelona's lead at the top of the table at a whopping nine points, this is likely Real Madrid's last stand to defend their title.

Here's all you need to know ahead of a mouth-watering clash.

Barcelona vs Real Madrid score prediction

After a humbling defeat in the first Clasico of the season, Xavi and Barcelona seem to have found Real Madrid's number.

La Blaugrana have one of Europe's meanest defences and have been going about their business with narrow wins for much of the season.

Real Madrid's title defence has fallen by the wayside and only a win at Camp Nou will keep it alive, but don't count on them returning home with three points.

Prediction: Barcelona 1-0 Real Madrid
