La Liga is on a knife edge with just two points separating both these two teams. The timing therefore couldn't be better for this latest installment of EL Classico. Don't miss a kick by following or Barcelona vs Real Madrid live stream guide below.

With Real currently sitting in second and having suffered a 2-1 midweek loss at home to Man City in the Champions League, there's added intrigue as to how Zinedine Zidane's side respond to that damaging defeat.

Barcelona head coach Quique Setien is just two months into his new job and will be desperate to endear himself to the Nou Camp faithful by claiming victory in his first Clasico.

The Blaugrana certainly seem to have improved since the 61-year-old took charge, and look to be reverting back to their familiar style of playing the ball out from defence.

The away side are however experiencing something of a defensive crisis with first pick full-backs Jordi Alba are Sergi Roberto both injured, while Gerard Pique also looks unlikely to be available.

The question is, can Real take advantage of their great rivals apparent vulnerability. Los Blancos have struggled at times to hit the target this season,having failed to score on no less than eight occasions in La Liga during this campaign.

Which team will move a step closer to winning La Liga? Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of Real Madrid vs Barcelona no matter where you are in the world with our guide below.
