    The reigning champions sit 11 points behind table-toppers Barca, though have a game in hand, and a third defeat of the campaign would create a near-impossible gap to bridge.

    The last time a Clasico was held on Christmas Eve Eve, Real ran out 1-0 winners at Camp Nou thanks to a Julio Baptista goal exactly a decade ago.

    Cristiano Ronaldo appears to have found his scoring touch this season, netting in each of his previous four games, so can he inspire Real to a much-needed Clasico win?
