Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale all start for Real Madrid in Sunday's El Clasico with Barcelona at Camp Nou.

Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale have all been selected to start for Real Madrid in Sunday's El Clasico with Barcelona at Camp Nou this evening.

Zinedine Zidane was reportedly considering resting a number of his first-team stars for the La Liga clash, but the BBC all start, while Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro are all present in midfield.

Dani Carvajal and Isco are still absent through injury, with Nacho coming into the right-back position.

As for the hosts Barcelona, head coach Ernesto Valverde has preferred Philippe Coutinho to Ousmane Dembele, while Andres Iniesta is fit for his last Clasico despite suggestions that the midfielder could miss out through injury.

Sergi Roberto, meanwhile, starts ahead of Nelson Semedo at right-back.

Barcelona have already been crowned champions and sit 15 points clear of third-placed Real Madrid, who would move to within one point of second-placed Atletico Madrid with a win.
