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 clásico, 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 has been so many goals and that...

El Clasico: Real Madrid vs. Barcelona 50-50 Challenge

Luis Suarez declares himself fully fit for Real Madrid clash later this month as the Barcelona man's ban comes to an end.

Real Madrid vs. Barcelona barely needs any more added spice but it's getting it this Saturday with Luis Suarez set for his debut. El Clasico promises to be as enthralling as ever -- here's ESPN FC's Rob Train (Real Madrid) and Dermot Ledwith (Barcelona) previewing the action.

Only one place to begin -- Luis Suarez. Will he start? It's written in the script for him to score, surely?

Rob Train: It's not just chins being stroked in Catalonia over how exactly Suarez will operate alongside Lionel Messi...

Realigning stars: Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo face changing roles

The ESPN FC team debates who is better, Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, and what is more valuable to the team, goals or assists?

In advance of this weekend's Clasico, the winners of the past six Ballon d'Ors are changing roles-thanks both to new teammates and their own limitations.

FC BARCELONA

Lionel Messi: For years, Messi has been the heart and soul -- also head, feet and legs -- of the Barcelona attack. One of the world's most ruthless goalscorers, he dominated Barca's striking play by taking or creating 40 percent of the team's shots since 2010. But with Neymar and Luis Suarez on the flanks of Barca's 4-3-3, Messi...

Outclassed Liverpool no longer on same level as Real Madrid

Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol calls out his club for playing with a lack of heart and determination against Real Madrid.

LIVERPOOL -- The pre-match entertainment was seductively good. They were playing the tape of one of Anfield's greatest European nights as an appetiser. Liverpool's television channel broadcast a favourite programme, replaying the 2009 night they beat the mighty Real Madrid 4-0.

And that, frankly, represented the highlight of Liverpool's evening. After the nostalgia, the here and now. After one historic humiliation, a record-breaking reverse. Only Alvaro Arbeloa, a winner on both occasions, could...

Benzema, Ronaldo lead the ratings as the European champs show their class

After becoming quite familiar with Anfield during his time at Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo notched his first ever-goal there in Real Madrid's 3-0 win over Liverpool.

Much was made of Real Madrid's big week, but they started it in comfortable fashion with a 3-0 victory over Liverpool, a club they had previously not defeated in Europe's elite competition. The European champions wanted to right some wrongs after suffering three losses from as many matches against their opposition in Europe and they did just that on Merseyside.

Three Points: Liverpool vs. Real Madrid

Real Madrid were dominant in Anfield as they march on and keep their perfect record on their quest to a Champions League title defence.

LIVERPOOL, England -- A trio of observations on Real Madrid's 3-0 win vs. Liverpool in the Champions League.

1. Holders outclass Liverpool

There was to be no famous European night at Anfield. Not, at least, for Liverpool. This time, they had to accept a sound beating from Real Madrid. Their 100 percent winning record against the 10-time European champions was dissolved by an opponent who oozed superiority in each area of the field.
