Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui focused on El Clasico, not his future

Real Madrid's Thibaut Courtois threatens to sue Spanish paper for Mourinho, Conte claims

On Sunday, Barcelona and Real Madrid will meet for the first time this season as the reigning Spanish champions welcome their European counterparts to the Camp Nou. While Real Madrid did bounce back in the Champions League against Viktoria Plzen with a win after five matches, it was just a functional display.

Ahead of the big match at the Nou Camp, we have profiled three players who could step up and replace the void left my CR7 in the Real Madrid attack.

"I don't think you should take things out of context and say that's why Dembele is not playing". The Catalan giants enter the tie top of the Primera Liga table and with a four-point lead over seventh-placed Madrid. "We are working well, working hard".

Inter had tried sending long balls to striker Mauro Icardi, who threatened to put in a low cross from Ivan Peresic, before Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet drew a reflex save from Handanovic with a header in the 18th.

Spanish "Barcelona" has lost its leader Lionel Messi before important matches.

Before kickoff, Barcelona fans chanted "Messi!"

In a statement of her own, Hall said "the last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I'm grateful". At the same time, her former association with Fox caused some NBC colleagues and viewers to regard her with suspicion.

That will make this clasico the first to be played without either star since 2007.

Madrid will be such as risky opponent.

'We aren't focusing too much on that, there's a lot of noise when teams run into situations like this but we are focusing on what our opponents are truly like, and they have a fantastic team, they aren't lacking in any areas, ' he added. Although the majority of his goals have come towards the start of the season, with braces against Leganes & Girona in August & September.

The defeat ended Inter's flawless start to Group B, with Luciano Spalletti's side now three points behind Barca heading into the reverse fixture at San Siro on November 6.

The only question is whether Valverde will give a second straight start to Rafinha after he scored against Inter, or opt to play forward Ousmane Dembele in Messi's spot.

Messi cheered and lifted his good left arm in victory after his teammates showed more than enough class to convincingly beat Inter Milan 2-0 even without its best player. Marco Asensio on the other hand has been struggling to replicate the pivotal role he played in the team's previous success under Zidane.
