Former Real Madrid midfielder David Beckham has called the El Clasico 'one of the best derbies in the world' ahead of the Copa Del Rey final between Barcelona and Madrid on Wednesday.

The second of a four match series between the two see's the great rivals tackle it out for the season's first piece of silverware.

And after the two sides shared the spoils during last weekend La Liga match, Beckham can't wait for another dose of El Clasico action

"It's such a special occasion. Historically it's one of the best derbies in the world - if not the best," he said.


"You realise how special these games are when friends, family, anyone you talk to like kids - they all want to know what it's like to play against Barcelona. It's special. It doesn't get much better than that.

"When we were playing Barcelona with the likes of Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos and Raul it was relaxed because everyone was so confident of their ability. When you play for Real Madrid, you have to be.

"Stepping out in a Real Madrid shirt and winning the game - it doesn't get much better. There just isn't a game like that in the world.

"There's obviously Manchester United v Liverpool, Manchester United v Manchester City but it's more United v Liverpool that's a big game. I've been lucky enough to play in them but this is Madrid v Barcelona and it's probably the biggest club game in the world."
