The most star-studded game in world football will be missing one of its brightest lights Saturday as Real Madrid host Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu without the injured Gareth Bale.However, with four gifted ball players in James Rodriguez, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Isco in midfield, Madrid may be able to turn the tables and use possession to minimize the threat of Barca's star South American trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.Just like last season it has taken Madrid some time to find the right blend after another busy summer in the transfer market before hitting their stride.Following their defeat to Barca last October, the European champions embarked upon a 31-game unbeaten run before Barca visited the Bernabeu in March.That run has included 35 goals, but crucially Madrid's previously leaky defense has also shored up, conceding just once in their last five games.
