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.

The 3-2, also a result in the last Super Cup against Real Madrid

Apart from having won the last two Barça-Madrid games 3-2, it’s worth mentioning that this result also brings good memories for FC Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup. In the last two editions of the competition in which Barça faced Real Madrid (in 2011 and 2012), the Blaugrana triumphed at Camp Nou by 3-2. In 2011, a 2-2 draw in the first leg at the Bernabéu saw FC Barcelona win the title, while in 2012, a 2-1 defeat to Madrid saw the trophy head to the Spanish capital.
