El Clasico

This Saturday one of the biggest games in the world will take place. Europe’s giants, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid C. F., will be facing each other in a very important game that could help decide the fate of their season.

Currently Barcelona is three points ahead of Madrid in the La Liga table, but that could all change with a loss this Saturday which could put Real back in first.

With a loss to Barcelona the separation that Barcelona needs could be gained helping them ensure a consecutive league title.

The stage will be set at the Bernabeu, giving Real Madrid the advantage, but with the team being so injury ridden the advantage would’ve been given to Barcelona.

However Barcelona’s superstar, Lionel Messi, might be returning after 7 weeks of being injured, but after keeping the public almost completely in the dark no one knows what his status will be for this Saturday.

According to the BBC, the viewership of this clash referred to as “El Clasico” being around 400 million worldwide the outcome of this match will be a topic of discussion for the coming weeks.

With this being a nationally broadcasted match some are worried about the safety of the people after the attacks that happened in Paris.

“I heard it was going to be cancelled because of all of the ISIS threats that have been made,” said Ms. Comeford when asked what she thought about the notoriety of the game

The only way to truly know what will happen is to wait until the game, where the world will be watching.
