Real Madrid received a big boost as Wales forward Gareth Bale returned to training on Thursday ahead of Sunday's EL Clasico tie with Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Second-placed Barca take on league leaders Real on Sunday knowing a win could take them top of the table, and Twitter has released a set of temporary Clasico-themed emojis for fans to use online to mark the occasion.

Coming off their defeat to Juventus in Champions League, Barcelona aren't completely out of options, and they will take the case to the RFEF's Court of Arbitration for Sport on Friday as their last recourse.

Ahead of the big game, a couple of Squawka's most trusted employees, Nic English and Muhammad Butt, took to Federation Internationale de Football Association 17 to see who could come out on top between Real Madrid and Barcelona, with interesting results...

The Portuguese scored the goal that essentially sealed Madrid's last La Liga crown in 2012's 2-1 victory over the Catalans and will be looking to repeat the feat for Zinedine Zidane's men this weekend.

"We are human, of course something is going to affect us", Barcelona's Gerard Pique said after Wednesday's Juventus game. Given Pique's history of keyboard warrior-ing, we don't need linguist Louise Banks to travel to Montana and board an extraterrestrial spacecraft to decipher its meaning (Arrival's a good film). And the total opposite happened as we went there and drew 3-3 and I think we deserved to win.

Killed on Spot In Chittoor Road Accident
Most of the deaths were said to be on account of electric shock as the lorry hit an electric pole before ramming into the shop. Following the accident, traffic movement on the Yerpedu, Srikalahasti, Renigunta and Tirupati routes was affected.

Nintendo Switch Sales Surpass 906000 Units in March
For comparison, the Wii U sold 890,000 units in the United States during its first six weeks on the market. Given the portable nature of the Nintendo Switch , you'll be able to play it pretty much anywhere you go.

Russian Federation challenges USA to prove chemical attack in Syria
Syria's government has denied responsibility for the attack. "We're going to see how that all works out". According to Putin, the fighters from these states pose a real threat to Russia's security.

But on Sunday, all eyes will be on El Clasico.

"Knowing the situation we are in, we go to Madrid wanting to win that game", Rakitic added.

A Madrid win will see Zidane's side move six points clear with six games left to play, including a trip to play Tony Adams' relegation-threatened Granada.

"I've been more than 10 years in Real Madrid and when you are eliminated, when you are knocked out of the Champions League, it is always the same". The red card was his first in his four seasons with the club. In contrast, Barcelona have won just two of their previous five in all competitions and were dumped out of Europe in midweek. Since then, Barcelona has won three titles and Atletico Madrid one.

The other players warmed up before taking part in rondo style drills, before playing a game on a reduced size pitch.
