Barcelona full-back Aleix Vidal is fully focused on securing victory when his side take on Real Madrid in Saturday’s El Clasico at Camp Nou.

The Blaugrana are currently 10 points clear of their rivals in the La Liga standings and they have won the last two meetings with Los Blancos, including a 4-0 success at the Bernabeu earlier in the campaign.

Spain international Vidal says league positions and past results will go out of the window when his side take on their great rivals and revealed his focus is on securing three points for Luis Enrique’s team.

He said: “We focus on winning and it is true that we have a significant margin of points. We know what we have to do and from there the two best teams in the world face and anything can happen.”

The second El Clasico of the season comes off the back of an international break where many players from both sides have spent a lot of time travelling to represent their respective countries.

With both teams also involved in Champions League action next week it promises to be a hectic schedule for all concerned, but Vidal insists fatigue will not be a factor for any player during Saturday’s match.

He added: “There is so much motivation to play in these types of games that fatigue remains in the background.”

Barcelona are available at 1.57 to secure all three points in Catalonia, while Zinedine Zidane’s side are on offer at 5.25 and the draw is priced 4.33.
