El Clasico

El Clásico refers to any match between fierce rivals Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. Other than the Champions League Final, it is considered one of the biggest club football games in the world, and is among the most viewed annual sporting events.

Originally it referred only to those competitions held in the Spanish championship, but nowadays the term has been generalized, and tends to include every single match between the two clubs: UEFA Champions League, Copa del Rey, overseas friendlies, etc.
