It appears that El Clasico will feature two heavyweights of comparable strength for the first time in many years.
While Barcelona recently had one of the strongest transfer windows for any European team in the last few years, Real Madrid is coming off of a Champions League-winning season.
The Los Blancos’ season last year was really dramatic.
They appeared to be in trouble numerous times, but each time they were saved by some outstanding efforts from their players.
They very well may have had the greatest Champions League season of all time for any team in the competition’s history.
They will be eager to continue this trend, and what better way to do so than by facing off against their fiercest adversary.
Lionel Messi’s departure from Barcelona has prevented Barcelona from experiencing any memorable moments. But it appears that now is finally the time for them to celebrate.
The moment Robert Lewandowski ties his boots for the Blaugrana will be the one that supporters will be anticipating out of all the excellent signings they have made.
The current FIFA Best trophy winner is determined to have an as successful time in Spain as he did in Germany.
Expect fireworks to fly as these two ferocious adversaries square off with the goal of scoring a decisive victory. On Sunday, plenty of goals are anticipated from both ends of the field.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona Team News :
Lewandowski might make his Barcelona debut now that his transfer to Bayern Munich is finalized, but it’s unlikely that he will make the starting lineup. Instead, the striker might come off the bench.
After sitting out the match against Inter Miami due to fitness concerns, Gerard Pique and Ferran Torres will both be aiming to play for the Catalan team.
Additionally, Sergio Busquets, Ronald Araujo, Jordi Alba, and Gavi might all make an appearance after the Inter Miami match.
Due to the rumors surrounding his future, Frenkie de Jong is unlikely to start.
Instead, Pedri, Gavi, and Busquets may line up behind Aubameyang, Ferran Torres, and Raphinha, with Memphis and Dembele likely coming off the bench for the Catalan team.
Summer acquisitions Rudiger and Tchouameni of Real Madrid could both start the El Clasico, with the former possibly playing in the middle of the defense with Eder Militao.
In a midfield three with Tchouameni, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro as the other two players, David Alaba might start at left back.
The likes of Eden Hazard, Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior, and Karim Benzema make up a strong group, and all four players are anticipated to appear at some point during the match.
It is unclear how active Marco Asensio will be over the summer given the rumors surrounding his future despite the fact that he is a member of the squad despite being extensively connected with a summer departure.

Ter Stegen; Dest, Araujo, Christensen, Alba; Gavi, Busquets, Pedri; Raphinha, Aubameyang, F Torres
