El Clasico: Barcelona The Lifeblood Of The Catalonia Region.

  El Clasico is the biggest game in world football.
   This is not a subjective statement either — there is simply nothing compared to it in terms of impact and feeling, significance and consequence. Millions the world over watch Barcelona and Real Madrid battle for, not just footballing superiority, but the very soul of a nation.  That these are the two biggest teams in the world means the stakes are remarkably high, and so following Barcelona’s rampant display and humiliating 5-1 defeat of their arch rivals this past weekend, it came as no surprise at all that Real Madrid moved to dismiss their manager, Julen Lopetegui.                                       The atmosphere inside  Camp Nou – Barcelona’s sprawling edifice which there are plans afoot to refurbish and expand, from its current 99,354 capacity to 105,000 — was charged with sentiment, some of which boiled over into abuse of Madrid’s captain Sergio Ramos.
