Saturday, 22:00 local time, the 156th El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona, this time, in Madrid, inside the Santiago Bernabeu. Situation – Both teams have 77 points after 30 league games, with eight still in the bag. Real Madrid are first, by goal difference, leading Barcelona by one goal. Can’t get any closer than this. Last year, in the Beranbeu visit, Barcelona thrashed Real 6-2. History says, Barca have never won back to back at Madrid. Lionel Messi is pretty much unstoppable at the moment (and that’s an understatement), coming off a four-goal performance against Arsenal. On the other hand, Real do have the most star studded side in the world. Too close to call, but with the game being in Madrid, Real are slight favorites. And for those who forgot, this is their first clash this season, at the Camp Nou, with Barcelona winning 1-0 from Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s strike. By the way, he is questionable for Saturday’s match.
