Madrid:

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's record goalscoring form looms as the decisive factor when Spanish league leader Real Madrid plays at Barcelona on Saturday in a crucial "clasico" that will effectively determine the destiny of the title.

Madrid has seen a 10 point lead over three-time defending champion Barcelona whittled down to just four points over the past month, and a loss at the Camp Nou would see the advantage sliced to just one point with four more games remaining.

Madrid may be the hunted, but of the two teams, it is Barcelona that can least afford to lose. Coach Pep Guardiola, who has only lost once in 10 games against Madrid, said "if they win (the league) is over."
