Without further ado, let us quickly take a look at five players who can take the center stage and change the tie within a blink of an eye.
#5 Arthur Melo
Arthur Melo was one of the standout players in Barcelona's 5-1 victory against Real Madrid this season. To perform like that and dominate the likes of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos in his first Clasico is quite astonishing and Real Madrid will be wary of the threat the Brazilian posses in the midfield.
Since his arrival at the Nou Camp, Arthur seemed to be a huge solution and relief for Barcelona. He has settled in quickly and has managed to pull strings with his effective passing and world-class shielding of the ball.
The Catalan giants have been desperately trying to cope up with the absence of midfield maestros like Xavi and Iniesta, and Arthur is one of the names who popped up in the list. It will again be a huge test for the young midfielder, who will like to have his say in the biggest battle of club football.
