With just three points seperating two two clubs at this stage, the March 1 clash at the Bernabéu is shaping up to be one of the most important Clásicos of recent years, after December's meeting at Camp Nou finished in a 0-0 stalemate for the first time in since November, 2002.  

On the same Sunday, Atlético Madrid will take on the other Barcelona-based club, Espanyol, in the Catalan capital, with that match kicking off at 4pm.
