This Saturday sees Real Madrid travel to Barcelona for the first Clásico of the season (4pm CET). Nine members of the current squad head into the Camp Nou clash having previously found the net against the Azulgranas, with Karim Benzema leading the way with nine goals to his name. The Frenchman's strikes have come in the following three competitions: LaLiga (six), the Spanish Super Cup (two) and the Copa del Rey (one).   

The frontman is followed in these standings by Sergio Ramos, who has netted four times. All of the defender's goals have been headers and have come in league meetings. The next players in this list are Raphaël VaraneMarcelo and Marco Asensio, who have each scored twice against the Azulgranas. Other players to have registered against Barça are Casemiro, who got his name on the scoresheet in the 2016/17 Clásico contest at the Bernabéu, and Lucas Vázquez, who bagged his first goal in this fixture in the 2018/19 Copa del Rey encounter in Barcelona.

Vinicius claims record
In the sides' previous meeting, Vinicius Jr. became the youngest foreign player to score in a league Clásico as he landed a record previously held by Lionel Messi. In that same game, Mariano made it 2-0 to round off the scoring and seal a valuable win en route to the club's 34th LaLiga crown.
