La Liga line ups: Real Madrid v Barcelona

Gareth Bale returns to the Real Madrid starting line up to face Barcelona, after being left on the bench for their defeat to the Catalan side in midweek.

The Welsh international came on as a second half substitute as Santiago Solari's side lost 3-0 in the Copa del Rey semi final second leg, and he replaces Lucas Vazquez for tonight's game.

The hosts only other change from Wednesday night is goal keeper Thibaut Courtois in for Keylor Navas. 

Barcelona make one change from their winning team, with Brazilian Arthur in for Nelson Semedo, with Sergi Roberto moving to right back.
