Real Madrid’s assistant manager Aitor Karanka has said that the Whites will stick to their 4-3-3 formation for this weekend’s El Clasico against Barcelona. Karanka, standing in current Real boss Jose Mourinho at a press conference, has said that Angel Di Maria and Cristiano Ronaldo will definitely play, with one of Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain partnering them.
Madrid are three points ahead of Barca in the league standings and are on a fifteen game winning streak in all competitions. They also have a game in hand over Barca.
Karanka has insisted however that Real Madrid will not play for a draw despite their cushy lead at the top of La Liga.
