Neither club has enjoyed a stellar domestic campaign but they’ve benefited from a lack of competition this year, with Atletico Madrid unable to put up a challenge.

The title race looks like it’s going to go right down to the wire, with 12 games still to go.

It shows just how gripping El Clasico is that Chelsea’s players were predicting the outcome and putting money on the line.

It’s one of the biggest games in world football. 650 million viewers watched the last meeting between the sides and, despite the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo no longer features, it’s still a must-watch fixture.
