There’s a few things guaranteed to happen when Real Madrid face up to Barcelona in the match dubbed “El Clasico” – and that’s excitement, goals, drama, passion and stupendous quality football.
Some might say it’s like a bad Billy Elliot audition with the feeble play acting that we all loathe, but each year this fixture never fails to grip the whole of the footballing world with the wealth of talent that these two teams hold in their lockers.
Barcelona are just a point above Real at the top of La Liga, so whoever can take three points will land a huge punch in the title race come the end of the season, even if we’re only in November.
It’s Ronaldo v Messi, Benzema v Suarez, Bale v Neymar…it’s finger lickin’ good, it’s El Clasico!!!
