Barcelona midfielder Song primed for Real Madrid clash

Barcelona midfielder Alex Song is ready for the El Clasico against Real Madrid.

In little over a week, and if selected, Song will face Cristiano Ronaldo when Barca meet Real Madrid on October 7.

Tito Vilanova's side will be without Carles Puyol, out with a knee injury, while Gerard Pique has a sprained ankle.

Such a prospect does not in any way concern Song.

"Clearly, with Puyol and Pique we are stronger but I am ready and I've played against Cristiano in the Premier League.

"I have not just started playing today. I've played over 200 games at Arsenal and I have nothing to be worried about.

"I am not just thinking about stopping Cristiano. What is important is to play and do the job. That is why I have come."
