Real Madrid vs. FC Barcelona, 8pm UK time.
It's Clasico time! The eyes of football fans all over the world will be set at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium today where home team Real Madrid will host long time rival, perhaps even nemesis, FC Barcelona. In terms of the La Liga's championship, everything is still quite open.
Real Madrid is leading the table with 70 points composed of 22 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses, while Barcelona is positioned third with 21 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. They only have Atletico Madrid in their way, standing on the second position with one more point to their name. If Barcelona beats Real Madrid today things are going to get very intense.
But that won't be easy for the Catalans. Real Madrid is coming in strong after beating Schalke 3-1 at home in the Champions League round of 16, securing their spot in the last eight, while Barcelona's weak 2-1 defeat to Manchester City was viewed by some as "the end of the empire". But, and that's a big but - Barcelona will climb the pitch after their sensational, almost comical 7-0 thrashing of Osasuna in Camp Nou last Sunday where star Leo Messi scored a hat-trick.
