Barcelona have made a couple of surprising decisions for El Clasico, sitting down both of Cesc Fabregas and Pedro Rodriguez. Instead, Christian Tello and Thiago Alcantara will start against Real Madrid. Girard Pique is apparently still not fit to start, and Adriano starts at left back with Carles Puyol and Javier Mascherano in the middle. Jose Mourinho has opted for Mesut Özil ahead of Kaka and Fabio Coentrao ahead of Marcelo.
Bench: Antonio Adan, Kaka, Esteban Granero, Marcelo, Raul Albiol, Gonzalo Higuain, Jose Maria Callejon
Kickoff is at 2:00 p.m. ET, 8:00 p.m. local time from Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. You can catch the game on any of GolTV, ESPN3 and ESPN Deportes in the USA. It's also on GolTV in Canada and Sky Sports 1 in the UK.
