All eyes will be watching the Camp Nou this weekend. El Clasico part 1 for this season. Real Madrid visit Barcelona for their first clash of the year. Will this year be different? Will the bickering and arguing finally go away? New faces for both side will finally join the party. Neymar, Isco, and maybe the world’s most expensive signing, Gareth Bale will become the newest actors in ‘El Clasico the Movie.’ Neither team has shown the best of form yet this season, but they seem to bring it out of each other whenever they play. The world is their stage. Ronaldo versus Messi, arguably the best 2 players in the world, going at it again, both knowing that everyone is waiting for this game to make their case for which of the two is the best. Every move they make will be used as evidence for their superiority. To the fans of their clubs, the players will be defended to a fault, but both fan-bases want one thing, a win. The score be damned, the win is what’s necessary. A win for Barcelona widens the gap at the top of the table. A win for Madrid would put them even with Barca. And yet if they were both at the bottom of the table, the fans would need this win. Bragging rights over your eternal rival; there is nothing greater. So many story lines for one game that comes this early in the season. Best teams, check. Best players, check. Let’s hope the game lives up to the hype and expectations so we can say, “best game, check.” Come Saturday night, when the game is done, we’ll know who the “best team” is. We’ll know who the ‘best player in the world” is. Or will we just know who won the game and who had the better game between Messi or Ronaldo? I guess we’ll find out where the majority of the world stands Sunday morning. The post Hype Bowl Part 1 appeared first on UTSN - The Universal Takeover Sports Network.
