The Countdown To El Clasico Begins

Barcelona and Real Madrid have faced one another in every La Liga campaign since 1929, as they are two of three teams who have never been relegated from Spain’s top flight.

On the 22nd of March we will see Barcelona host Real Madrid at the Camp Nou in arguably one of Europe’s most anticipated clashes. There is a lot to play for as both teams are fighting for the La Liga title. Today, the Fan Park crew discusses their previous meetings, and what we can expect from the tie.

Last Five League Meetings Between Barca & Real

Real Madrid and Barcelona have won two a piece in their last five encounters, while the last El Clasico league game ended in a draw, where Lionel Messi and Cristiao Ronaldo both scored braces for their respective sides. The last meeting was in October, and Real come back to beat the Catalan club 3-1 after Neymar took the lead at the Santiago Bernabéu.

A Battle Within The Battle – Lionel Messi Vs Cristiano Ronaldo

After every El Clasico, football fans around the world who watched the clash, jump at the chance to slay either Messi or Ronaldo. Either one of them can score and still, a comparison will be made – and it won’t be different after this game. Lionel Messi is the leading scorer in this fixture with 21 goals, while Ronaldo has scored 14.

What’s At Stake?

Barca are currently just one point above Real Madrid at the top of the league table coming into this game, and this fixture might just decide who will be crowned champions at the end of the season. Why? Because a win for either team will give them tremendous confidence as they head in to the final stretch of the campaign, making this encounter a do or die.

Our Prediction

It’ll be hard to look past Barcelona for this one as their form of late has been incredible. Everybody was raving over Messi and Neymar’s partnership, but Luis Suarez has now proven that he was worthy of his summer move to the Catalan club. Real just don’t look up for it. Yes, Gareth Bale has broken his goalless run, but Ronaldo won’t stand for anyone stealing his spotlight – and we may see another example of this on Sunday.

Who do you think will win the much-anticipated fixture?
