The ESPN FC panel debate who may have the edge ahead of this season's first Clasico between bitter rivals FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Ahead of the highly anticipated Clasico on Saturday, ESPN FC spoke with the developers of the upcoming "Football Manager 2015" computer game to get their prediction of the final score. The Sports Interactive group ran a simulation of the game and shared the results; here's the outcome.

Real Madrid-Barcelona: A tactical preview

There's little argument that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the two best soccer players in the world, but who's better?

The only aspect we ought to leave out of the Real-Barca preview is the importance of home field advantage. Since 2008-09, Barca have won six times at the Bernabeu, and Real have won four times at the Nou Camp. 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...

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,...
