El Clasico, El Gran Clasico, or just plain old, The Classic. It’s simply the biggest soccer match on the planet, between Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid. The season’s first installment of this intense rivalry, steeped in political as well as sporting history, takes place today (3 p.m. EST) at Camp Nou. A Monday night? Isn’t it usually on a weekend? Yes it is, but the game has been moved on this occasion because of Sunday's Catalan elections. Today's marquee matchup not only brings together football’s two biggest stars, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but also sees Jose Mourinho strut onto the El Clasico stage for the first time, just to add an extra bit of drama.
