Real Madrid have the chance to cut down Barcelona’s lead on top of La Liga to six points they travel to the Catalan capital for the second league El Clasico of the season. Los Blancos are coming off an exhausting, yet motivating win against Liverpool, which should push them to compete with an inform Barça.

The good news is that several key players are back for Carlo Ancelotti as part of the traveling squad. Ferland Mendy, for example, has been included in the list, but his place in the starting lineup is still unsure.

Meanwhile, Karim Benzema, who picked up a knock against Liverpool, has also made the cut for the team along with all other forwards available in the team.

Ancelotti will also have his pick of the bunch in midfield, with all six players fit and running for the game. Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni will continue to compete for a spot in defensive midfield.

David Alaba is the only player unfit for the clash while Alvaro Rodriguez has been ruled out due to suspension. The Uruguayan picked up his fifth yellow card of the season while playing for Madrid Castilla and Madrid’s appeal was denied by the RFEF.

Turkish giants to go all-out to sign Real Madrid outcast – report



There is no way back for Eden Hazard at Real Madrid. The Belgian international has not given the management any reason to have faith in his abilities over his past four seasons at the club and is unsurprisingly the most important departure for the Merengues in the summer.

Hazard has one more year on his contract in Madrid. However, it is clear that Carlo Ancelotti does not trust him and that any potential replacement manager in the summer will echo his stance.

According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, Fenerbahce are willing to go all out to sign Hazard this summer. The Turkish side have made the former Chelsea their prime target, yet face a steep task ahead of them.

The 32-year-old is hellbent on seeing out his contract with Los Blancos despite seeing his career sink right before his eyes. It thus becomes complicated for the party to lure away the forward, especially in a competition outside Europe’s top five leagues.

Fenerbahce attempted to sign the winger in the recently concluded winter transfer market. They reached an agreement with Real Madrid but failed to get over the line as they could not convince the player of the move.

The biggest obstacle for the Turkish side will be convincing Hazard to make the move by letting go of his lucrative contract in Madrid. The chances are slim, but not impossible.

Hazard has made just three league appearances and one start for Ancelotti’s side this season in La Liga, a steep fall from last season’s 18 and seven respectively.

His last appearance for the team came back in January when Real Madrid faced Cacereno in the Copa del Rey. In La Liga however, he last played in September 2022 in a 4-1 win over Mallorca.
