Real Madrid's defense should be a little more secure for Saturday's El Clasico after Sergio Ramos was confirmed as part of the team's traveling squad.

Los Blancos' captain sat out Wednesday's shock 3-2 home defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk after suffering a knee injury in the club's previous outing, a 1-0 league loss to newly promoted Cadiz.

Barcelona are in similarly underwhelming form heading into the weekend scuffle at the Camp Nou. Ronald Koeman's side had registered only seven points from its opening four matches of the 2020-21 La Liga campaign before Tuesday's morale-boosting 5-1 Champions League win over Hungarian champions Ferencvaros.

Real Madrid are also missing Dani Carvajal, Eden Hazard, Martin Odegaard, Mariano Diaz, and Alvaro Odriozola for El Clasico.
