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

Barcelona cruise past Inter without Messi

For the first time in nearly 10 years neither Ronaldo nor Mess will play the biggest game of the season in Spain: "Madrid had a good start to the season, now they are going a bit down but they will remain on top for the whole season", Guardiola said.

Ronaldo joined Juventus for an initial €100 million (£88m/$117m) in the summer after nine glittering seasons in the Spanish capital.

And he recognises that Ronaldo, who smashed countless scoring records during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, will not be an easy man to replace.

The unbeaten Bundesliga leaders, in imperious form all season, gave their fans another treat with goals from Axel Witsel, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Guerreiro (two). Although the majority of his goals have come towards the start of the season, with braces against Leganes & Girona in August & September.

Real Madrid's last league game was a terrible one as the Galacticos lost 2-1 at home to Levante.

Frustrated Osaka looking for answers after opening defeat
Osaka saved two set points at 5-6, but hit an unforced error off her forehand on the third. Stephens, who won the 2017 U.S.

"We did what we had to do during our last two matches in the Champions League against Tottenham and PSV, therefore, the group situation is still positive despite the defeat".

On the other hand, Barcelona defeated Sevilla 4-2 at the Camp Nou and Lionel Messi left the game injured just after 26 minutes.

Dembele joined Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund for 105 million euros past year but his first campaign was blighted by injury while doubts remain about the Frenchman's habit for losing possession. A surprise success would make sacking Lopetegui harder to justify but five games without a win and over eight hours without a goal are not quickly forgotten. Madrid will be such as risky opponent.

A win will ease the pressure off the manager's back and the fans will have the first bragging rights at their oppositions. The Spanish worldwide is no stranger to scoring in El Clasico with his curling strike from outside the box sealing a 2-0 win the in the Super Cup in 2017.

It's been nearly 11 years since an El Clasico took place with neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Lionel Messi on the pitch.
