  1. I was annoyed when I read beginning of article only mentioning the ESPN’s broadcast, but relieved when you casually added in the end that GolTv showing the matches as well. Strange how the GolTv reference was not included in the second paragraph along with the ESPN information.

    I know, picky, but to me it would make more sense to not separate the information like that :)

    1. Efrain, it wasn’t intentional on Debbie’s part. But I’m glad you’re looking forward to this weekend’s first leg.

      Who do you think will win at the Bernabeu?

      The Gaffer

  2. Gaffer, I did not mean any foul by my comments…. just found it odd.

    I guess it depends on whether Barca will start their A-Team. If they do, I am confident that Barca would take it. But its tough to be objective as I am a Barca fan.

      1. I do love Cesc, but am sad as I love Arsenal too and wish he would have stayed because in reality, Arsenal need him more than Barcelona. But I have to say he handled himself very well these last two years with all the rumors and drama surrounding his transfer.

  3. Debbie, btw, I did not mean to sound spiteful with my comments, just found it odd that GolTv was not mentioned earlier in your article. And, welcome aboard….. I think….. as I have not seen you write on this blog.

    1. Efrain,
      You didn’t sound spiteful at all. This is my first article and any constructive criticism is helpful. You’ll see some more articles from me this week as I report on the Supercopa Espana. Looking forward to watching El Clásico live. Thanks!

  4. The two Spanish giants have not met in the Spanish Super Cup contest since 1997. Fans however had too much to enjoy earlier this year as the clubs clashed on four occasions in La Liga, the Copa del Rey final, and the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

    Barcelona lost a single encounter in the unforgettable Clasico series, but their defeat was a highly meaningful one for Real Madrid, who eventually broke their cupless curse.
