Zinedine Zidane has no doubt who is the best team heading into El Clasico in Camp Nou as he hailed Barcelona as virtually unbeatable and added that they are the best team in Europe.
The Real Madrid legend is hopeful that his former club, with whom he now works as an ambassador, can take something from the game on Sunday, but recognised how good the Catalan outfit currently are.
Talk of Pep Guardiola's side faltering disappeared in midweek with a commanding first-half display against Italian champions Inter and that drew praise from Zidane.
Hopeful that Barca can be weakened in some way, the Frenchman believes that even without key players, the team unit means that they are no one is ever really missed.
"Playing like they do, Real Madrid nor anyone else can stop them. It is almost impossible," he told Canal Plus France.
"When their team play like that have been, regardless if [Lionel] Messi or [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic plays, Barca are the best team in Europe.
"I hope and pray that players like [Andres] Iniesta cannot play against Madrid."
