The heated rivalry between the two sides should make for a very entertaining match, with football fans sure to want to snap up some cheap Barcelona hostels to see the action live.
Eight games into the current season, the clubs find themselves in the top three with only a point separating them, though it is Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid who currently have the advantage.
As well as not losing a single league game so far, the team have only dropped four points with draws when playing away against Mallorca on the opening weekend of the season, and against Levante.
However, convincing results against strong competition like Real Sociedad, Espanyol and Deportivo La Coruna are just some of the wins which have helped the team to set the benchmark for the campaign.
Barcelona started the season strongly with a 3-0 away win over Racing Santander but fans of the club were left stunned when a shocking 2-0 defeat at home to Primera BBVA newcomers Hercules was put in the record books.
Since then though, Barcelona have picked up wins over established clubs in the league, with Atletico Madrid, Athletic Bilbao and Valencia some of the names which the defending champions have so far pushed aside. In fact, since that shock defeat, Barcelona have only dropped points in a draw against Mallorca.
Those who booked up some cheap hostels in Barcelona last season and went along to this same fixture may remember that it was the home team which walked away with all three points, thanks to a 1-0 win over their main title competitors.
