Real Madrid is in full slump mode by its standards, but still sits just one point out of first place in the Spanish Premier League. A loss today in ‘El Clasico’ could doom Real Madrid’s title hopes while also leaving Barcelona in prime position to win the league crown.
Real Madrid’s defense has been extremely shaky, and will need to straighten out in order to contain a Barcelona attack that is on form. Lionel Messi is playing some of his best soccer of the season, and will look to add to his long history of tormenting Real Madrid.
Manchester United and Liverpool renew their own rivalry at Anfield, as the Red Devils look to put a serious dent in Liverpool’s hopes of a top four finish.
In Germany, Bayern Munich takes on Fabian Johnson and Borussia Moenchengladbach in a match that should have plenty of action.
