No football fan will need any introduction to this biggest clash in world football between Real Madrid and Barcelona as El Clasico returns with this two big guns fighting for the crown this weekend.
Real Madrid will host Barcelona in La Liga’s first Clasico clash of this season on December 23, Saturday where the two old rivals will battle it out at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium for the Spanish crown. The two Spanish clubs will be face-to-face in La Liga for the first time since April on Super Saturday. It is a must win Clasico for Zinedine Zidane’s side to keep the title race alive. Though Madrid will look to strike back on their home turf, Barca will want to make a strong start under the new boss Ernesto Valverde in this vital match which can decide the destination of the title.
The current era of football has been defined by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as much as it has by Barcelona and Real Madrid as football clubs. Ever since Ronaldo decided to leave Manchester United for La Liga the pair of superstars have fought it out close for the Ballon d’Or. The champions are tied on five apiece, after Ronaldo’s most recent win.
Though it is very hard to say which club is better, there is no better measuring stick for Real Madrid and Barcelona than this face-off.
Though the competition is always tight between these two football giants when it comes down to numbers Real Madrid have the edge to the head-to-head records. Madrid is four wins ahead of Barca overall and just three better off in league matches. Out of 174 La Liga matches between Real and Barca, Real Madrid have won 72 with Barca just close with 69 wins while 33 matches were drawn.
It’s just a matter of few hours for the big game and football fans around the world can’t wait for this cracker. We bring you some of the Twitter reactions of the fans on this EL Clasico starter:
Man gotta wake up at 7 and watch #ElClásico then drive to DC.
