Second placed Barcelona come into the match on a run of five straight league victories, a winning streak that has brought life back to their previously floundering title challenge, while also helping to cast aside the bad memories of their recent ignominious exit from the Champions League at the hands of PSG. 

Madrid are also looking resurgent, with Zinedine Zidane’s side themselves on a five-match unbeaten La Liga run. They'll also likely e boosted by their impressive 3-1 win against Liverpool in the home leg of their Champions League quarter-final in midweek.

Having won 3-1 in the reverse fixture earlier this season, Madrid will be looking to complete a league double over Barca for the first time since the 2007/08 season. Excited? Read on for how to watch a Real Madrid vs Barcelona live stream on Saturday.
