El Clasico

Yes! It’s here.

There are rivalries in sports. Yankees-Red Sox. Ohio State-Michigan. Packers-Bears.

Then there’s THE rivalry between the two giants of La Liga, Real Madrid and Barcelona. 114 years in the making. The rivalry represents so much more than just soccer. For the two Spanish sides, it is about political struggle, cultural identity…then there’s the soccer too.

Whether you’re a big soccer fan or not, this one is worth watching as you will see the world’s best,  on one of the biggest stages as the teams square off at Barcelona’s Camp Nou.

Madrid is in the best position they’ve been in for years. They sit atop La Liga standings with an unblemished record. Barcelona is in a must win situation.

“If we win on Saturday, things will look different,” Gerard Pique said. “If we lose, things will become very complicated.”

The Barcelona defender went further, “Madrid have the luxury of being able to lose. We don’t.”

So wake up, make yourself some waffles, pour yourself a good cup coffee, maybe throw some Bailey’s in it, and turn on THE game.
