Madrid will try spoil our party - Suarez

Considering Barcelona didn't give Los Blancos a guard of honor after their Club World Cup triumph past year, this should have been expected. Barcelona have won the La Liga title while Real Madrid only cares about the Champions League final at this stage of the season.

"It was they who did not give it to us and we, with all respect, will not give it in return", he explained.

Barcelona will host Real Madrid in the 36th matchday of La Liga 2017/18 at the Camp Nou on Sunday, May 6. At home, Barcelona are always hard to beat and with Real Madrid focussing on the Champions League, I see the home side leaving with all three point.

"He is a player we admire, he's not just any player", Zidane said.

"The most important thing is that we respect what Barcelona have done, winning the league, which for me is the most lovely and the most complicated thing".

The kick off time for the match is 7:45pm.

Barca thought they had extended their lead through Suarez, only for the goal to be disallowed for a marginal offside in the build-up, and Iniesta, seemingly set for a switch to the Chinese Super League, was then withdrawn to a standing ovation. Real Madrid's Marcelo and Casemiro have been global teammates since the summer of 2012, even before the latter joined the Bernabeu outfit.

"With respect, we won't do it because they didn't do it".

Real Madrid lost their first La Liga meeting against arch-rival Barcelona in the 2017-2018 season, so another loss would make them the first Los Blancos side since 2014 to fall twice to Barcelona in a single La Liga season.

"I don't understand the guard of honour and it won't take place, although we are far from the end of the season".

Bale was again a substitute against Bayern Munich on Tuesday, meaning he has now started only one of Real's six Champions League knock-out games.

Zidane is still likely to rest Raphael Varane and Isco, who are struggling with calf and shoulder injuries respectively. On the other hand, Barca manager Ernesto Valverde told reporters it doesn't really matter.

The encounter assumes greater significance for Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta, who will be bringing the curtain down on a phenomenally successful career at the club. The amusing thing is, in 2008, Barca gave Real the guard of honor when they entered the Camp Nou. He grimaced when putting weight on the sore ankle and received treatment from the Real Madrid medical staff.
