Barcelona and Real Madrid are tied on points at the top of La Liga 2022-23. The Catalan club are ahead on goal difference. Barcelona have conceded only one goal while scoring 20 through eight rounds.
Madrid’s balance is 19 goals scored to seven allowed. Lewandowski leads the league with eight goals in as many games and 12 goals in 14 matches overall including the UEFA Champions League. Real Madrid are unbeaten in the season so far while Barcelona lost two games, both in Champions League.
Barcelona’s injury-hit defense has recovered Jules Kounde for the game, giving manager Xavi Hernandez more options as he tries to stop Madrid speedster Vinícius Júnior and his team-high five league goals.
Carlo Ancelotti will have all his first-choice players available except for injured goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. That means Ukrainian Andriy Lunin will be in Madrid’s net. Barcelona won 4-0 at the Santaigo Bernabéu last season, ending a streak of five losses to its fierce rival.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice in that rout but he has since been sold to Chelsea following the arrival of Lewandowski.
Across 249 El Clasicos in all competitions, Real Madrid have won 100 to Barcelona’s 97. In la Liga, Real Madrid enjoy 76-73 head-to-head record over Barcelona in 184 games.
