El Clasico is set for Saturday with so much at stake as both Real Madrid and Barcelona aim to jump first-place Atletico Madrid to put themselves in position to win La Liga. As with any season, especially with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, both teams are expected to be shorthanded for this match -- Real more so than Barca.
