El Clasico is the name given to the rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona; the two sides that traditionally rule La Liga, Spain’s top futbol/football/soccer division. In recent years, Atletico Madrid have risen up and inserted themselves into the conversation, essentially breaking up the usual duopoly.
The first meeting, in Barcelona on December 3rd, ended in a 1-1 draw. The next edition, in Madrid, will be on April 23rd. Real are currently top of the table, with Barca just point behind them. Sevilla, another Spanish club consistently relevant near the top, are just three points out of first place.Follow paulmbanks
