Real Madrid vs Barcelona: The “Clasico” is here!
It’s that time of the season where all football fans turn their attention to one and only one stage. Real Madrid and Barcelona will collide at the Santiago Bernabéu this Saturday afternoon at the local 6PM, in what will be the first meeting between the two Spanish giants this season.
Real Madrid are currently sitting in 3rd place in La Liga, after having going through a few bumps in the beginning of the campaign, where they’ve lost two straight fixtures against the likes of Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid. The Merengues have bounced back since then though and they get to this “Clasico” on a 8-game winning streak, combining Spanish League and UEFA Champions League fixtures. The team’s main star, Cristiano Ronaldo, has scored 17 goals in his last 8 games…
Barcelona are leading La Liga ahead of this Saturday’s “Clasico” and if there’s one thing we can be sure about, is that they’ll remain on top of Real Madrid regardless of the outcome we’ll get from this game. The Blaugrana have a 4-point advantage over their “enemy” and European champions from Madrid, but there is nothing that would please them more than striking a painful blow to their rivals right in their own backyard. They’ll be counting on Neymar and Lionel Messi to accomplish that feat, but also with Luis Suárez, who comes off a 4-month ban to finally have the chance to make his debut for his new club.
This Real Madrid vs Barcelona match will get wide coverage across the whole world, but we’ll list a few TV networks below, who are set to start showing this live event shortly before the kickoff takes place, so that their viewers can watch all the action from the comfort of their own home.
