Quique Setien provides Jordi Alba & Gerard Pique updates ahead of El Clasico

Barcelona boss Quique Setien has this afternoon provided updates on the fitness of key defensive duo Jordi Alba and Gerard Pique, ahead of El Clasico.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona

European football’s most highly-anticipated matchup is set for its latest chapter on Sunday evening.

Real Madrid will welcome Barcelona to the Bernabeu, for a crunch La Liga clash.

The showdown is set to come as an absolutely crucial one in the Spanish top-flight title race, with the Clasico rivals separated by just 2 points in 1st and 2nd as things stand.

It is Barca who hold the advantage as things stand, having capitalised on a pair of Real slip-ups over the last couple of weeks.

After stuttering to a 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo a fortnight ago, Zinedine Zidane’s men subsequently fell to a shock 1-0 defeat at Levante last time out.
