It looks set that the Clasico of Real Madrid and Barcelona next Saturday will see the presence of many stars, contrary to what was expected in light of the injuries that have hit both teams in the last two weeks.
As announced by Jude Bellingham, he will be ready to lead Carlo Ancelotti's battalion in the Clásico after recovering from a minor injury sustained in the Champions League match against Sporting Braga on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Sport revealed that the trio of Rafinha, Robert Lewandowski and Frenkie de Jong took part in Barcelona training on Thursday, boosting the likelihood of their presence against Real Madrid.
Rafinha could be the favourite to feature after fully recovering from injury, while Lewandowski and De Jong's position remains at stake, while Pedri, Kounde and Sergi Roberto have been confirmed to be absent from El Clasico.
As for Joao Felix and his injury against Shakhtar on Wednesday, the Portugal international is sure to be present with Xavi Hernandez's battalion at the Luis Combanes Olympic Stadium, having confirmed that it is just a contusion and there is nothing serious.
