Real Madrid v Barcelona: Luis Enrique plays down El Clasico

La Liga: Real Madrid v Barcelona
Venue: Bernabeu Stadium Date: Saturday, 25 October Kick-off: 17:00 BST Coverage: Live text commentary on the BBC Sport website

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has played down the first El Clasico of the season, saying Saturday’s game with Real Madrid will not be “decisive”.

Leaders Barca travel to the Spanish capital with a four-point La Liga advantage on their arch-rivals.

Barcelona are yet to concede a La Liga goal in 2013-14, while Real have scored 25 in their past five league games.

“There are still a lot of games to play and I don’t think the game will be decisive,” said Enrique.

Both sides are in Champions League action before next weekend’s eagerly-awaited game at the Bernabeu.

Real visit Liverpool on Wednesday, 24 hours after Barcelona host Dutch champions Ajax.
