Real Madrid welcome Barcelona to the Spanish capital this afternoon with the two sides locked at the top of LaLiga.
Both clubs have taken 22 points from their eight league games and we asked LiveScore followers to vote for their best combined XI.
Read on to see who they picked — and it is heavily biased towards one of the clubs.
Both Thibaut Courtois and Marc-Andre ter Stegen are long established as their respective clubs’ first-choice goalkeepers.
Although Ter Stegen has seven clean sheets and has only conceded once in eight LaLiga games this term, Real’s Belgian gets the nod.
After two injury-hit seasons, Dani Carvajal, 30, is establishing himself as Real’s first choice right-back again this term.
He has made nearly 350 appearances for Los Blancos, with five Champions League titles to his name.
Eder Militao has suffered from a couple of injury problems to kick off the campaign but that has not stopped him looking impressive when he has played.
No Real players have made more clearances per 90 mins, nor have they won the ball back more in the defensive third of the pitch than the 24-year-old.
One of the most versatile players in world football, David Alaba is voted in to partner his Madrid team-mate.
A serial winner, the Austrian helped Los Blancos regain their LaLiga title in his first season at the club.
Despite Barca’s backline shipping just one goal so far in the league, Ferland Mendy completes a backline dominated by Real.
The left-back is a worthy inclusion with Barca switching between Jordi Alba and Marcos Alonso depending on which competition they are playing in.
Madrid’s midfield metronome Toni Kroos was never going to miss out on a combined XI after many seasons of top-class displays.
Averaging 92.98 passes per game at 94.29% accuracy, Kroos has already created 11 chances and three big ones this term.
If you include Kroos, you have to have his long-time midfield partner Luka Modric in the middle of the park too.
The 37-year-old has created as many chances as Kroos, but five of them have been big and he has netted two goals in all competitions.
After seven Real players, the first Barcelona man voted into the side by LiveScore followers is teenager Pedri.
With 86 appearances under his belt at the age of 19, the Spanish international is on his way to becoming a Barca great.
A year ago, Ousmane Dembele would likely not have been anywhere near this XI, but times have changed.
The 25-year-old turned down the chance to leave the Camp Nou and with two goals and two assists in LaLiga this year, has become a key player.
There are probably two strikers in world football who would keep Robert Lewandowski out of a combined XI — one is record-breaking Manchester City star Erling Haaland and the other is Real skipper Karim Benzema.
The favourite for the Ballon d’Or on Monday evening, Benzema has three goals in five LaLiga starts this term.
Still only 22, Vinicius Jr has spent the past 14 months showing everyone why Real signed him four years ago as a 18-year-old.
The Brazilian has been tremendous for Los Blancos and already has seven goals and four assists in all competitions this term.
