Exclusive interview: Gerard Pique on El Clasico, Luis Suarez and Barcelona

His former Manchester United teammate, Gerard Pique, on the other hand, can boast a ridiculously good stat. Since returning to Barcelona, the 27-year-old World Cup-winning defender has lost only four of his...

This Saturday, they play at the Santiago Bernabeu, the pitch where Lionel Messi feels most comfortable. In fact, of the 21 goals the Argentine has scored against the Merengues, 12 have been on Madrid soil. But this isn't just about Messi. It's about all the new things this 229th official...

Mario Balotelli shirt storm, Neymar case dropped before Clasico

ESPN's Fernando Palomo highlights the advantages and disadvantages of each side ahead of El Clasico.

TOP FIVE STORIES

1. Neymar case dropped (Monday, Oct. 21)

In between all the post-weekend analysis, previews of a Champions League week and pre-Clasico build-up, the news that the Barcelona member who brought legal proceedings against the club for allegedly concealing the true cost of signing Neymar had dropped his case was buried somewhat.
