Luis Suarez to Start in El-Clasico

Saturday, October 25, 2014 4:23 pm

Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez has been named in the Barcelona starting line-up in the Primera Liga clash against arch-rivals Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu this evening.

Suarez starts alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar in a three-man attack for Barcelona, after completing a four-month ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during a group stage match at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Barcelona go into the El-Clasico four points clear at the top of the La Liga standings ahead of second placed Real Madrid, with the Catalan giants yet to concede after eight matches.

Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo however will come up against Ballon d’Or holder Cristiano Ronaldo who has so far scored 20 goals in 13 appearances for Real this season.

Meanwhile Lionel Messi could use the eagerly anticipated match to equal and even become the all-time leading goalscorer in La Liga history, having currently scored 250 goals which is one less than the long-standing record of Telmo Zarra.
