Real Madrid vs. 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.

La Liga Betting: Madrid To Edge Tight Clasico Decided By Fine Margins — Even for a clasico this is hard to call. Real Madrid have won all of their last eight games in all competitions, scoring 35 goals and conceding five. But Barcelona come into the game four points ahead of Los Blancos in the Primera Division table, having started the season going a club record eight games without conceding a goal.

Real Madrid's Gareth Bale ruled out of Clasico, Isco set to replace him — Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Gareth Bale will miss Wednesday's Champions League game at Liverpool and Saturday's clasico at home to Barcelona, while suggesting Isco is most likely to come into the side in Bale's stead.

Luis Enrique: Barca had game in hand when Neymar, Messi came off — BARCELONA -- Luis Enrique said that Tuesday night's 3-1 Champions League group stage win over Ajax went perfectly as Barcelona won the game early, and his pre-planned idea of then resting important players ahead of Saturday's La Liga clasico at Real Madrid had gone well.

Lionel Messi only aiming for Barcelona win, not La Liga record against Real Madrid — BARCELONA -- Lionel Messi says the important thing is that Barcelona win Saturday's La Liga clasico at Real Madrid, not that he becomes La Liga's all-time record scorer during the game at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Messi and Neymar have clicked Barcelona's in-form strike pair started the game as if the idea were to get the game decided early ahead of Saturday's La Liga clasico at Real Madrid.

We need third-party investment funds to help compete — Atletico Madrid chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin says his club could not compete at the top level without the help of third-party investment funds, while maintaining no outside party has ever forced Los Colchoneros to sell a player against their own will.

Alves actually tops the entire Liga in the 'inaccurate cross' standi...

Real seek Anfield revenge — Tuesday, March 10, 2009, and Marca's editors are sure they are onto a winner. 'This is Anfield, but so what?' says that morning's front cover of the of Real Madrid-backed sports paper, riffing on the famous players' tunnel sign at Liverpool's stadium, and claiming that Madrid's players would not be intimidated in the slightest in that evening's game.

Five things we learned in La Liga this weekend — 1. Something has to give in forthcoming Clasico The statistics after the opening eight weeks of the season suggest Saturday's Clasico to be the meeting of an unstoppable force with an immoveable object. Saturday's 5-0 win at Levante means that Real Madrid have now scored 30 goals in the first eight games of the season, a feat not achieved since 1987-88.
