No match prevents the world from rotating on its axis like El Clásico. This battle between the two preeminent powers in the world of football has the added benefit of an intense Spanish title race in 2014. A mere four points separates Real Madrid from Barcelona. A victory from Los Blancos would close the casket on the Catalan giants. Fortunately for Madrid, manager Carlo Ancelotti believes Gareth Bale is in the form of his life ahead of today's clash (h/t to Sky Sports). "In the first game he was switching positions with Angel Di Maria at times, but now he is used to playing on the wing and the team is balanced so we won't change that," Ancelotti said.

"He is in good shape. His physical condition is very important for him and I am sure he will play a great game," he added.

"We haven't done any special work with him to improve his fitness or speed. He just has great genes and has done the same work as everyone else. He is in really good condition and we are very happy with him. He had some problems at the start of the season but now he is looking good and we hope that will continue until the end of the season."
