It’s one of THE club games in world football. Most of Spain will come to a standstill and fans from around the globe will watch on with interest. It’s El Grand Clasico, El Derbi Espanol or simply El Clasico….Barcelona v Real Madrid.

First played in 1929, the match up between these two giants has become one of the highlights of La Liga. And this time round, it has an even greater importance with Madrid on top of the table just one point clear of their Catalan rivals.

And if that wasn’t enough, adidas have added a touch more spice by deeming that the game represents The Spark v The Maestro – Messi v Kaka, a reference to the ‘Every team needs….’ campaign which has been running over the past few months.

The head to head between the two adidas ambassadors, Messi in his modified F50i’s and Kaka in his bespoke adiPure II’s is another intriguing part of this fascinating rivalry and could also see you winning signed boots from both players and additional prizes for your friends.

Just go to the adidas facebook page (and while you’re at it check ours Footy Boots Facebook), sign on before 1900 CET on Sunday and answer the simple questions.

The last two league encounters have gone the way of Barcelona. In December last year they ran out winners 2 – 0 then followed that up with an astonishing 6 – 2 win away from home in May 2009. The five previous matches ended in draws or victories for Real Madrid. And its not as if we’ve been wanting for goals with the last ten meetings producing an average of 3.8 goals per game!

But of course, past results and scorelines will count for little on Sunday. The Nou Camp will be packed to the rafters for the 155th league meeting between the two teams but the first involving both Messi and Kaka. It’s The Spark versus The Maestro and it’s gonna be big!

    i really don’t know but i’m ditching liverpool and either going for Real Madrid or Barca.

    Kaka is my favourite player but messi is my 2nd favourite, and i like barca’s style more than Madrid’s, but cristiano ronaldo is my 3rd favourite?? HELP

    Anyway, i think Barca wil win 2-1 kaka (1) messi (1) iniesta (1)

  2. says: keven

    All the way
    Madrids good BARCAS better.
    Madrid had their time to shine but its a new dawn. And the only thing shining is F50i’s..

    Barca wins 3-2


  3. says: Mike

    Not going to lie Keven, I guessed the same result with the same players scoring the goals! Weird. So yeah, Barcelona wins this one 3-2.

  4. says: Splinter09

    The only problem is that Messi might not even play. Guardiola has not yet confirmed that both Messi and Ibra will be on Barça’s starting 11 tonight.

  5. says: Splinter09

    And the first clásico was played itn 13-03-1902 in the final of Copa de España’s first edition.

  6. says: murat

    i wish kaka puts on a show but barca wins. and if this years contest is half as good as the 6-2 last year, its gonna be magical. seriously, that match was so good, i think i cam…whatever…

    i saw that iniesta was annoyed at ronaldo for telling him to stop diving. ronaldo did have a point. i have always disliked iniesta because he dives all the time and he continued this last night. although, that comment coming from ronaldo was a bit rich, he is the worst in the world at it, but over recent months iniesta is catching him up. as an englishman i hate watching spanish football, it is so infuriating. the level of diving would not be tolerated here in the uk.

  8. says: David

    Saying diving is not tolerated in the UK is ridiculous. When you look at the likes of Drogba, Eduardo and Defoe you have to accept that diving has become part of the game. As for the Boots the Adipures are much better however Messi is a better player than Kaka

  9. says: Tom

    La Liga is ten times better than the Premier league in terms of technical ability and skill, much better league to watch. And Iniesta is the best attacking midfielder in the world, he doesn’t dive as much as you say he does adam, just appreciate a great player and moaning about something that he doesn’t even do that often. Drogba is the worst diver in the world and he plays in the Prem, so don’t say it would’nt be tolerated.
