Real Madrid are set to host Barcelona in the first El Clasico of the season. This edition is made more prominent due to the gap between both sides. Madrid have a game in hand – since they were away due to the FIFA Club World Cup which they won – but they are 11 points behind their fierce rival. If Barca get victory, the La Liga title may be lost for Real as the season reaches halfway.
The estimated viewing figure for the game is around 650 million worldwide as the game is broadcast in 188 countries. The La Liga has prepared events in numerous countries like China, India, Japan, South Korea, Kenya etc. to attract thousands of fans. The fixture on Saturday, 23rd December means more fans would likely be available to see the game.
