Real Madrid stars dazzle in photo shot-out ahead of El Clasico

Lopetegui said on Saturday he still hopes to turn around Madrid's season a day before his team visits Barcelona's Camp Nou. The win also ended Barcelona's 39-game unbeaten streak. The Barcelona star will miss the game due to his fractured arm suffered last weekend, while Ronaldo no longer plays for Real Madrid.

Lopetegui said Messi's absence was not a big factor in his preparations for the game. The Whites get into this clash at the back of two successive La Liga defeats and will be going all out to put an end to the streak and grab all three points at Camp Nou.

This will be the first Clasico without Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo since December 2007.

A loss could mean the end for manager Julen Lopetegui, who was sacked over the summer as coach of the Spanish national team for talking about the Real Madrid job.

As the football world prepares for the latest installment of El Clasico, we want to see how well you really know this monumental feature.

Within a five-year period of treatment, only 22 percent survive, according to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The study, in the British Journal of Cancer , examined statin use and the development of contralateral breast cancer.

However, the victory has been soured somewhat by rumours coming out of Spain that have suggested Barcelona's talisman, Messi, is keen for the Catalan giants to make Salah their No. 1 target. Luis Suarez, Arthur and Philippe Coutinho were all excellent in Messi's absence on Wednesday.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with ESPN FC, the Atletico Madrid striker said he's looking forward to watching the match and that Barcelona are still talented enough to win without their injured superstar.

Karim Benzema was long seen as the ideal strike partner for Cristiano Ronaldo, with the French striker often setting up goals for CR7.

Madrid's coach, Julen Lopetegui released the list of a provisional squad of 22 players that included three goalkeepers, six defenders, eight midfielders and five attackers. Lionel Messi then scored to give the home side the lead, but Gareth Bale had other ideas.

However, failure to beat Inter just four days before they entertain Real Madrid in "El Clasico" would sow the seeds of doubt ahead of one of their biggest games of the season. "We have to be recognisable in the way we play, keeping the ball".
