El Clasico to be pinnacle of 'most exciting La Liga season'
Date Posted: 28/10/10
The countdown is on until this season's El Clasico, which sees Barcelona and Real Madrid go head to head in one of the most highly anticipated games in world football.
Taking place at the Nou Camp on Sunday November 28th, Pep Guardiola and his team will welcome Jose Mourinho's 'galacticos', in a clash which will ensure pure entertainment and drama for those booking Barcelona hotels for the weekend.
"Barcelona and Real Madrid have always had and always will share one of the most intense rivalries in world football," wrote a blogger on the BleacherReport.
As expected, both teams are at the top of La Liga, with Mourinho's Real Madrid holding a narrow advantage, following a goal glut in October.
Such is the quality between the two teams, the game could see no fewer than ten nominees for the World Player of the Year trophy in action, with the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Mesut Ozil all represented in the Ballon d'Or list.
Those attending the game will be part of a sell-out 112,000 crowd, with the winners of the match looking to claim bragging rights until they meet later in the season.
