It’s the topic on everyone’s minds, the heavyweight match between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. And now former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola has weighed in on the upcoming Clásico. He says he won’t be able to watch it, because his current team, Manchester City, will be playing later. “We’ll be focused on the game against Bournemouth,” he said.

But he did offer up his opinion on La Liga’s biggest clash:

In terms of points right now, it’s a big distance. Both teams remain top, top teams. No doubt about that... So far Barcelona is better than Real Madrid. But tomorrow is a Clásico, we’ll see what happens.
