Finally, El Clasico and Luis Suarez's debut are upon us

The ESPN FC team debates who will be victorious in the upcoming match between the world's elite, Real Madrid or Barcelona.

The time is finally here. After weeks of anticipation, Barcelona are finally able to focus all their efforts on Real Madrid at the incredibly hostile Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.

The 3-1 victory over Ajax at the Camp Nou on Tuesday was definitely not the Catalans' best performance of the season but, ultimately, three important points were added to their tally, bringing the eventual qualification for the knockout stages reassuringly closer.

Whether Luis Enrique wants to admit it or not, his lineup...

Cristiano Ronaldo's form covers Real Madrid's issues -- Steve McManaman

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe questions whether it is possible to make Cristiano Ronaldo any more determined to win than he already is.

Former Real Madrid winger Steve McManaman believes the current European champions have been weakened by the sale of Angel Di Maria and Xabi Alonso but says the current form of Cristiano Ronaldo can offset the losses.

Di Maria was named man of the match in Los Blancos' Champions League final win vs. Atletico Madrid in May but left the Bernabeu for Manchester United in August. Alonso, meanwhile, joined Bayern Munich, and McManaman says that the signings of Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez have not covered...

Man Utd fans wrong to write off Van Persie and Januzaj despite concerns

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal still thinks his team can win the Premier League despite being 10 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.

When Manchester United were first linked with signing Robin van Persie from Arsenal in the summer of 2012, the fans were fairly dismissive.

United very rarely signed players who were already at their peak, so Van Persie -- having won the Golden Boot in the previous season as well as being named the PFA and FWA Player of the Year -- certainly wasn't their usual type.

Having just lost the title on goal difference to Manchester City, United were in need of something special, though, and the supporters...

Luis Enrique happy for Barcelona to deviate from Ajax-inspired model

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique was pleased with their performance in the 3-1 win over Ajax in the UEFA Champions League.

Barcelona may have been founded in 1899, but it isn't unreasonable to say that the Barca the world knows was only really born when the Dutch first landed at the club. Rinus Michels, Louis van Gaal, Frank Rijkaard and above all, Johan Cruyff left lasting marks on the club over the course of four decades, planting a seed from their own Northern European football culture on the Iberian Peninsula then nurturing it with care.

It is all too tempting to read Barca's clash with Ajax on Tuesday as a meeting...

Bayern Munich poke fun at West Brom's Fellaini gaffe with Twitter quip

As you may recall, West Brom Tweeted themselves into a cul-de-sac on Monday night when the club's social media team aimed a jibe at Manchester United substitute Marouane Fellaini as he prepared to enter the fray at half-time, only for the fuzzy Belgian to score a spectacular(ish) equalising goal shortly after coming on.

Sadly for West Brom, it...

Cup humiliation the latest sorry chapter in Chivas' desperate campaign

Kristian Alvarez (centre) leaves the field in despair after Chivas' humiliation at Santos Laguna in the Copa MX on Tuesday.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- I've always tended to lean on the positive side of the debate when covering Chivas.

Not one for being a doom-monger, I've seen the glass as being half-full rather than half-empty when it comes to the storied Mexican institution picking up and moving away from relegation, at least until now. It always seemed that things couldn't get worse for the club. And then something bad has tended to happen.

Chivas' 5-0 loss away to Santos Laguna on Tuesday in the quarterfinal of the Copa...
