Luka Modric is hoping he gets to console his international team mate, Ivan Rakitic after the clasico.
Barcelona visit Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu, with Los Blancos three points clear with a game in hand.
Modric is yet to win the Spanish La Liga with Madrid since joining in 2012, but hopes to end that this season.
“I have not spoken to Rakitic, we are all preparing for the game in peace,” Modric told Sportske novosti.
“We will hug and talk after the match – hopefully I will have to console him.
“We never get enough tickets for El Clasico, everyone wants to come and watch this match.”
