Barcelona vs. Real Madrid instant analysis

As my colleague Sid Lowe has already said, El Clasico is a match of quite preposterously gigantic proportions. It's six years since the La Liga title went to a team other than Real Madrid (two trophies) or Barcelona (four). Even before kickoff, this pair is at least four points clear of Villarreal in third. They've scored 66 goals between them already!

The lineups read like fantasy rosters; the soccer world is salivating -- unashamedly dribbling into its lap, eyes wide with anticipation, at the thought of this match. Luckily, I've waterproofed my laptop, so I'll be here from 2.45 p.m. ET to bring you all the action as it happens. Join in by emailing georgina.turner.si@gmail.com before and after kickoff.
