The Spanish press have highlighted the threat of lucky charm Luis Suarez when Barcelona host arch rivals Real Madrid in Saturday’s El Clasico.

The La Liga pair go head-to-head in the crunch clash this weekend where Luis Enrique’s Barca side will be hoping to extend their 10-point lead over their arch rivals.

And the media in Spain have ramped up the pressure by previewing the highly-anticipated league clash in Friday’s papers.

Mundo Deportivo have singled out striker Suarez as the main threat, with the former Liverpool star proving a real asset for Barca since arriving in 2014.

He’s proven to be a lucky charm this season with the Spanish side yet to lose when the Uruguay international scores.

According to Mundo Deportivo, whose front page headline read ‘Talisman Suarez’, Barca have won 42 matches and drawn two in the 44 games he has netted in.

AS, meanwhile, have predicted the line-ups for the Nou Camp clash and reported Real manager ‘Zinedine Zidane and Enrique will contest the Clasico with the best players’.

Barca are strong favourites for the match having thrashed Real 4-0 in the reverse La Liga fixture at the Santiago Bernabeu in November.

But Spanish daily Marca have predicted Saturday evening’s kick off to be an even contest with the best strikers in the world going head-to-head.

The Barca trident of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Suarez will hope to get the better of Real trio BBC – Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.

‘This can’t be missed’ was Marca’s front page headline on Friday and the sports daily reported that ‘the MSN have scored more goals, but the BBC have the best average’.
