Pepe has been left out of the Real Madrid side to face Barcelona at the Camp Nou. Raphael Varane will partner Sergio Ramos at centre-back, while Álvaro Arbeloa will play at right-back.

Alexis Sánchez has been left out of the Barcelona squad, while David Villa has been left on the bench.

Barcelona XI: Pinto, Alves, Piqué, Puyol, Alba, Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Cesc, Pedro, Messi, Iniesta.
