Boss Barcelona look for this Sunday to win for the third time in the year at real Madrid, defending champion and current escort, to extend their comfortable nine-point lead at the top of La Liga and try to doom the league’s outcome. The Spanish football classic takes place at the Camp Nou stadium from 17:00 (Argentina time) with ESPN, DSports and the Star+ platform.

The game is surrounded by the traditional sporting rivalry and a judicial dispute for the recent announcement by Real Madrid to present itself as a victim in the sporting corruption case against Barcelona for alleged arbitration favors received during the presidency of Sandro Rossel (2010-2014 ) and Josep María Bartomeu (2014-2018).

Barcelona have 65 points this season and if they win they would extend their lead against Real to 12.

Two classics were played this year which led to victory for the Blaugrana. The first in a football performance in the Spanish Super Cup final (3-1), and the second in a formidable survival exercise (1-0) in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-finals at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium. .

This Sunday’s match will be the first of a series at the Camp Nou which will conclude on April 5 with a rematch of the Copa del Rey semi-finals.

In the Catalan stadium, the locals have barely managed to win in 3 of their last 10 matches. The last triumph dates back to 28 October 2018 for 5-1, a match that the Argentine Lionel Messi -the historical top scorer of the clásico- did not play due to injury.
