Kluivert: El Clasico Changes The Whole World

Former Barcelona striker, Patrick Kluivert has spoken ahead of the much-anticipated El Clasico this evening.

Real Madrid will host Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu in their second El Clasico encounter in La Liga.

The Catalans are currently topping the league standings with a nine point gap over their rivals, Madrid, who are at third place, with just two points separating them from their neighbours Atletico Madrid at second.

However, form goes out the window in an encounter such as the El Clasico, with Kluivert revealing that this particular showdown is an encounter that will be watched all over the world.

“I think there’s quite a big advantage for Barcelona, not only on the table but also I think they are a bit further this season than Real Madrid. But, El Clasico is one game and you can switch one game like this, and a game like this, you either got your moments or you have a problem,” Kluivert said.

“I have played in quite a few leagues but El Clasico is a game that changes the whole world. Everybody knows it, if you say it, or at the other end of the world, it is a game that everybody knows.”

“It is fantastic to take part in that game. If you ask any fans in Spain to go to an El Clasico, they will die for it,” he added.
