Clasico

Up to 11 players could play in their first Clasico on Sunday when Barcelona host Real Madrid at Camp Nou — eight for the home team and three for the visitors.

For Barça, there are two groups. The first is made up of four academy players — Eric Garcia, Gavi, Nico and Balde — and the second of four new signings — Memphis Depay, Sergio Agüero, Luuk de Jong and Yusuf Demir. Aguero has played 14 times against Madrid for Atletico (11) and Manchester City (3), drawing five times and losing nine, while scoring four and creating four goals.

De Jong faced Madrid as a Sevilla player four times, drawing one and losing three of those fixtures. For Memphis and Demir, it represents a possible debut vs. Madrid.

As for Madrid, the Clasico debutants could be David Alaba, Eduardo Camavinga and Miguel Gutiérrez. The latter has come through the academy, La Fabrica, while the other two signed this summer.

Alaba has played three games against Barça for Bayern, resulting in big wins (4-0, 0-3 and 2-8), but it would be Camavinga’s first game against the Blaugrana.
