Barcelona will face Real Madrid in El Clasico, first of this season, on Saturday.

Barcelona will likely be missing six players for the match, including five likely starters including Pedri.

Xavi highlights the importance of not losing possession and being well positioned against Real Madrid, as they can "destroy you" on the break.

“We will seek to dominate the game with the ball, and on Saturday it is essential not to lose balls and be well positioned, because Madrid can destroy you.”
