Los Blancos dispatched the Reds 3-0 in a Champions League tie on Wednesday, with Cristiano Ronaldo opening the scoring before Karim Benzema added a brace at Anfield.

The victory sees Real topping Group B with nine points from three games - six points ahead of chasing trio Ludogorets, Liverpool and Basel.

"In the last month, or month and a half, we have looked in great shape," Modric told reporters afterwards. "And we showed our top form in this iconic stadium.

"The first goal is broke them. They lost enthusiasm. Then in the second half we were saving a little bit of energy for Saturday."

The Croatian midfielder added: "The atmosphere in the team is great and it's one of the reasons why we're playing so well.

"I am ready for the Clasico, whatever the outcome is. Hopefully, we will win because it would mean a lot for our confidence."

Real have won eight games on the trot, while rivals Barca have plundered 22 goals without conceding one in La Liga this season.
