It’s an argument that rages from the beer halls of Berlin to the restaurants of Rio, from the Bay of Naples to the Manchester Ship Canal. What is the biggest game in club football? Of course, there is no definitive answer to the question but there’s one game which is perhaps whispered with more reverence than any other. And that game is called El Clásico. Or, for the uninitiated, FC Barcelona v Real Madrid.
The fixture attracts a staggering global audience of 400 million viewers and features some of the biggest names in world football – from the dazzling genius of Barca’s attacking triumvirate of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, to the power and passion of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale for the 11-time European champions. One of the great things about this game is that everyone has a point of view. But, thanks to technology, this point of view is now a little different.
