Barcelona and Real Madrid look set to compete over the La Liga title once again this season, as they occupy the top two positions in the table. That has been the norm in Spanish football for almost two decades now, except for the two times that Atletico Madrid have been able to script underdog stories and become champions of Spain.

At the moment, just a point separates the two teams. Despite all the criticism that Real Madrid received following their loss to Atletico Madrid, they are still the top team in the La Liga table. Barcelona are second.

As a result, it goes without saying that the two El Clasicos in La Liga could prove to be vital when it comes to determining the fate of the league title. The first one is set to be played later this month.

Barcelona were handed a major blow earlier when Robert Lewandowski suffered an injury that could see him miss the first El Clasico of the season. There is some good news for the Catalan giants as well though.

It looks like Pedri could be fit in time to take on Real Madrid. As reported by SPORT, when asked about his return on the digital application ‘The Residency‘:

"“If everything goes well, I will be at my best in the Clasico.”"

Pedri has been out injured since August and is believed to be in the final stretch of his recovery now. It looks like the Spaniard is optimistic about not only his chances of making the first El Clasico of the season but also aiming to be at his best for the game.

Of course, Real Madrid are without a number of key players through injury as well. They have continued to get wins though, which is the most important thing.

That being said, they did struggle against a top team in Atletico. And their recent record against Barcelona is bad.
