Ryan Rosenblatt from SB Nation Soccer talks us through the build-up to yet another hotly-anticipated El Clasico match-up between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid
In what is set to be yet another unmissable El Clasico match-up between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, Ryan Rosenblatt from SB Nation Soccer talks us through all the major talking-points in the build-up to the kick-off. Barcelona head into the match in pole position in La Liga, and after defeating Los Blancos over two legs in last year's Copa del Rey, the Blaugrana will be quietly confident of a victory - especially with Iker Casillas (and others) set to miss out through injury.
Lionel Messi, fresh off his four-goal showing against Osasuna, will be looking to break yet another record and become the leading scorer in El Clasico history; although he will need to score a brace at the Santiago Bernabeu if he is to eclipse the 18-goal milestone set by fellow Argentine striker, Alfredo Di Stefano. Cristiano Ronaldo on the other hand has scored in six successive Clasicos; will he be able to extend that run in front of his home crowd?
