Match preview: The ClassicMarch 9, 2007
It’s the big one on Saturday night when Real Madrid take on FC Barcelona in the Nou Camp in what is known as ‘The Classic’.
Both teams must at least draw some comfort from the fact that neither made it through to the next round of Champions League and will be pulling out all the stops to ensure victory.
One of the big doubts for Saturday night is Ronaldinho, although the club has confirmed that he is not suffering from a torn muscle in his left thigh after the match against Liverpool on Tuesday.
As to be expected the match is sold out, although there will be a small number of tickets available from the box office due to the way Barcelona allocates tickets. Expectation runs high and Spain will be at a virtual standstill on Saturday night from 22:00 when the clash of the Titans begins.
