What makes this such a big deal?
Well, Barcelona and Real Madrid are the two biggest and most successful teams in world soccer. For that reason they both attract the best soccer stars in the world. We’ve already name-dropped Lionel and Cristiano, but there is so much talent on the pitch during this game they should introduce another ball to proceedings. You have the heir to Leo’s throne, Neymar. Then, there’s the biter, striker Luis Suarez — who has put his misdemeanors behind him to rattle in the goals for Barcelona. But Real has their own stars in hunky Colombian playmaker James Rodriguez, as well Rihanna‘s rumored fling Karim Benzema.
Where are the two teams in the standings?
Real Madrid’s La Liga race is all but over. Defeat would probably confirm that, because they’re already 10 points behind first-placed Barcelona. Real’s current third position is a little bit of a disaster for a team that’s under achieved this season. Still, irregardless of position in the standings they won’t want their rivals to beat them.
Lionel is on the verge of history.
The genius Argentinian is 1 goal away from reaching 500 in his career for club and country. It’s an incredible statistic because he’s still only 28 and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. You would bank on him netting that goal at the highest stage, like this one.
