Tonight, a spectacle awaits us at the Santiago Bernabeu, in the round of 32 match La Liga, the team of Real Madrid welcomes her Barcelona in one of the world's biggest football derbies.

Both teams had extremely difficult and emotionally charged second leg matches of the Champions League quarter-finals this week. The Catalans experienced a big disappointment, after the 3:2 victory in Paris and the lead in Barcelona, ​​they suffered a 1:4 deluge and lost their place in the semi-finals to PSG.

Madrid drew against Manchester City, and then with a better performance of penalties they eliminated the current European champion.

Barcelona had a day more rest, played half an hour less than their rivals, but the adrenaline that the "kings" received by eliminating the main competitor for the title of European champion will surely make up for the accumulated fatigue.

El Clasico returned to Madrid after more than a year, and the renovated stadium with a new capacity of 81.000 could decide the race for the champion, given that Real is currently the leader with 78 points, while Barcelona is second with eight points from seven cars until the end of the Spanish championship.

Whether Barca can triumph in Madrid and restore uncertainty to La Liga remains to be seen after the latest El Clasico in which there are no favourites.
