21st century combined Barcelona and Real Madrid best ever XI

Media hyperbole is a terrible thing. However, the fanfare around El Clasico, is well and truly deserved, as the planet’s two biggest and best clubs collide.

Sure, it doesn’t always deliver. But when it does, my word, it’s well worth pissing off your wife for by hiding the remote so she can’t turn over to X-Factor.

There’s been some unreal talents over the years to play for the Catalan giants and the Los Blancos, but of course, due to the freaks of nature, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, you forget some of the ridiculous talents that the pair have had.

The revolving door of world-class talents at the Nou Camp and Bernabeu doesn’t look like ending anytime soon. Imagine if it ever gets to a point where Ronaldo and/or Messi aren’t included?.
