Real Madrid vs Barcelona: El Clasico prediction, how to watch on TV and online live streaming

While the Catalans offer threats throughout, it is the Spain midfielder who makes them tick, the ex-Blancos defender has warned ahead of El Clasico

Barcelona are tough to stop when Andres Iniesta is in the groove, former Real Madrid defender Ivan Campo has argued.

Saturday will see the Catalan outfit tackle Real Madrid in La Liga, having opened up an 11-point gap to their great rivals at the summit of the standings. Barca have yet to lose in the Primera Division this season and travel to the Bernabeu with their spirits high.

Real Madrid's title chances are all but over if they fail to beat rivals Barcelona in the final Clasico of 2017.

The reigning champions sit 11 points behind table-toppers Barca, though have a game in hand, and a third defeat of the campaign would create a near-impossible gap to bridge.

The last time a Clasico was held on Christmas Eve Eve, Real ran out 1-0 winners at Camp Nou thanks to a Julio Baptista goal exactly a decade ago.

Cristiano Ronaldo appears to have found his scoring touch this season, netting in each of his previous four games, so can he inspire Real to a much-needed Clasico win?
