El Clasico mania continues



The El Clasico fever that has had the world firmly in its grasp over the last 30 days continues with another installment of football’s greatest rivalry set to be played out on Saturday.

Real Madrid and Barcelona will meet for the third time in just 32 days this weekend.

The match is exclusively live on SuperSport.

With kickoff set for the unusual time slot of 5pm, SuperSport will start the buildup from as early as 11am with a variety of content related to these two giants of modern football.

These include documentaries on Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the star players of this matchup, as well as one on Cesc Fabregas.

Highlights of the best matches of the last five years, Barcelona’s double humiliation of 2008 (where they had to perform a guard of honour for the newly-crowned champions and also take in a 4-1 drubbing) and 2010’s manita (five goals) humiliation of Real, an epoch-defining clasico.

As has become the custom, “Clasico: The Movie” is the calm before the storm.

Saturday’s encounter might not be the last as the possibility of a further two clasicos before the season is out still exists. The two sides could yet face off in the Uefa Champions League quarterfinals even though both sides’ chances of progression to the last eight are hanging by a thread.
