For many, El Clásico is the best football match in the world. The duels between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid promise goals and spectacular action at a level that very few teams can reach. In addition, these games invariably feature some of the best players in the world, which makes it even more attractive.
The last two Barça-Madrid confrontations have ended with the same result: five goals, with a 3-2 win in favour of the Blaugrana, both at the Santiago Bernabéu in the league, and in the Miami pre-season friendly.
If we take a look at the last ten games between both teams, there has been an incredible 39 goals scored, an average of almost four per match. Of those, Barcelona have 22 and Real Madrid 17, with a balance of six Barça wins, three victories for Los Blancos and one draw. Now, the Spanish Super Cup awaits for the two best teams in the world.
