Can Real Madrid respond to Barcelona's win and reclaim three-point lead?

The LaLiga race is turnign out to be as close as it can get this term, with the usual suspects Real Madrid and Barcelona going neck-to-neck. 

The Catalan side moved level on points with Zinedine Zidane's men after their hard-fought 2-1 win over Getafe on Saturday and will pray Celta Vigo gets a result at Santiago Bernabeau on Sunday night. 

Two first-half goals from Antoinne Griezman and Sergi Roberto were enough to give them three valuable points, even though Angel Rodriguez's goal in the second half set a tense finale to the match. 

The win saw them move to 52 points, same as Madrid, who have a superior goal difference. 

Can Zidane's side finde a perfect response?

The whites are unbeaten at home in the competition this season and are on a five-match winning streak.

They are also on a good run in the league, having gone unbeaten in the last 14 games, picking eight wins and drawing thrice at their own turf. 

They also boast the best defense in Europe's top five leagues having kept twelve clean sheets and conceding only 14 goals so far.

They will be pleased with the news that one of their summer acquisitions in Eden Hazard is back to the squad having fully recovered from a niggling injury he sustained against PSG in the Champions League in 2019. 

Their opponents will be hoping for a second win on the bounce after they beat Sevilla last weekend.

They have so far managed four wins, eight draws and eleven defeats, but will be without a key player in Hugo Mallo, who is suspended.

They, however, have a lethal weapon in their leading scorer Iago Aspas, who has netted 8 goals so far.
