El Clásico is one of the biggest football matches in the world. Regardless of who the players are and regardless of the form each team is in, or even their current financial state (Barcelona), it is still a game that attracts millions of viewers.
The rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona is historic. While many of the players and fans these days see the rivalry as being in sport only, within Spain it is still at times fiercely sociopolitical.
This historical animosity combined with the fact that both teams have been immensely successful in world football makes it one of the world’s most anticipated matches.
With Real Madrid’s 2-1 win over their bitter rivals this weekend, Los Blancos have now won the last 4 Clásicos. They have also now won a grand total of 99 Clásicos to Barcelona’s 96.
Both teams are in a restructuring process now that the Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo era is over, however it is the team from the Spanish capital that is in a better position both financially and sportively.
While many in the world may be sad to see FC Barcelona in such a state, for Madridistas…Barcelona woes = Madrid smiles.
In this episode of the podcast we discuss the win over Barcelona and that while it is great to have won against our bitter rival, they are not currently our biggest foes in La Liga. This win was important but the fight for the title will be against the likes of Atlético Madrid, Sevilla, and other La Liga such as Real Sociedad that are currently playing well and will make Real Madrid’s title chase difficult.
