El Clasico: Real Madrid vs. Barcelona 50-50 Challenge – ESPN FC

Rob Train: It’s not just chins being stroked in Catalonia over how exactly Suarez will operate alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar in potentially one of the finest forward lines of all time. Still, I’d be very surprised if he starts at the Bernabeu. Three friendly games in four months — for Barca B and Uruguay — is hardly ideal preparation for a game of this magnitude, and there seems little to be gained by throwing the striker in at the deep end on Saturday. Barca have yet to concede in the league and are not short of attacking threat; Pedro played a wonderful first half against Ajax and should get the nod. Munir El Haddadi is another option after his spectacular season to date. Suarez can expect 20-30 minutes if the game is finely balanced and Luis Enrique needs someone to knock Real’s defence off theirs. via – ESPN FC
