Real Madrid will have their back against the wall as they have lost five games out of the last seven that they have played at home.
Barcelona are two points clear of Real Madrid but a win for Zinedine Zidane's side will take them on top of the points table.
Real Madrid, on Thursday, lost 1-2 to Manchester City by conceding two goals in the second-half, including a penalty in the Champions League last 16 first leg match.
Real will be without skipper Sergio Ramos, who received a red card for tackling Gabriel Jesus, in the second leg when they travel to the Etihad Stadium in Manchester.
On the other hand, Barcelona played out a 1-1 draw against Napoli where Arturo Vidal got a red card in the 89th minute at the Stadio San Paolo in Italy on Wednesday and he will not feature in the second leg at Camp Nou.
