It looks like Angel di Maria will continue for Real Madrid despite that knock he picked up a little while ago, which is fantastic news for Jose Mourinho and Real Madrid and less good news for Pep Guardiola and Barcelona. Madrid are still doing their thing, using their pace to pose the visitors' defence some interesting questions, but early Karim Benzema goal aside they've just about managed so far.
Of course, this Barcelona side isn't really known for its defending, and they're doing some work on the attack as well. Cesc Fabregas wins a free kick when he's catapulted into the air by Lassana Diarra, and Xavi's free kick is wicked and swerving, forcing Iker Casillas to punch clear in unconvincing fashion.
