Real Madrid vs. Barcelona is the richest football game in the world

The ESPN FC crew and Santi Solari give their predictions for El Clasico.

On Saturday, Real Madrid will host Barcelona in the 229th edition of el Clasico -- a rivalry that has become the biggest-money clash in world football.

Players with a total value of almost 1.3 billion euros will take the field at the Bernabeu in front of a global audience of more than 400 million viewers.

In every direction, the clasico numbers keep on growing. No other game comes close.

Neymar thriving under the tutelage of Lionel Messi at Barcelona

Santi Solari gives his take on the partnership between Neymar and Lionel Messi.

Barcelona could unleash their all-South American forward line in Saturday's Clasico against Real Madrid -- Luis Suarez showed few signs of ring rust when he tuned out for Uruguay recently. The logic behind his signing would seem to lie in a recognition that, at the age of 27, Lionel Messi may be coming to the end of or even past his athletic peak. Rather than being the goal scorer, in the future his fabulous technical ability is likely to mean that he operates a little deeper, threading through...

Real Madrid vs. Barcelona: Clasico promises goals aplenty

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

It would be naive to deny that the rise of the Clasico to become the biggest and most important game in world football has nothing to do with vastly expanded television coverage in recent years or with the many thousands of online columns, magazine articles or newspaper coverage around the globe.

Clearly, that's a major factor, but the reason for that voracious global hunger, its single defining quality is ... quality.

All of Spain's football communities, and many of the world's Clasico outposts,...

Real Madrid prepare to sign Javier Hernandez to permanent deal

With three goals in just four league outings, Chicharito has convinced Real Madrid to loosen the purse strings...

Wait, the transfer window is closed? That's news to the Transfer Talk crew. There are still plenty of transfer-related rumours around the world!

Carlo signs off on Chicharito

After just four appearances in their famous white kit, Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid have been sufficiently impressed with Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez to want to tie him down to a permanent deal at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Daily Express says that there is an option-to-buy clause in the Manchester United man's loan deal...

Real Madrid-Barcelona: A derby between teams in transition

Southampton manager and former Barcelona man Ronald Koeman speaks to the significance of El Clasico.

BUENOS AIRES -- The latest UEFA Champions League match-day brought goals everywhere, but above all, it was a great appetizer in the lead-up to the great game that all of us lovers of soccer want to see: the Spanish Clasico, Real Madrid vs. Barcelona.

It's that, besides the enormous amount of goals and the odd relative surprise, such as the collapse of Juventus, we have repeatedly said that the first phase of the Champions League is very unequal. The fact that there have been so many goals and...
