Clasico doubt over Rakitic

Barcelona have a doubt over Ivan Rakitic’s fitness ahead of the Clasico with Real Madrid as the Croatia midfielder’s training has been sporadic.

AS reports Rakitic trained normally on Monday but didn’t take part in a session on Tuesday, having picked up a calf injury against BATE Borisov.

Rakitic did train throughout last week after missing his country’s international matches, working in the gym and with the other places not away from Barca, but his non-appearance on Tuesday means Luis Enrique can’t yet count on him for Saturday.
