The weekend’s El Clasico matchup between eternal foes, Real Madrid and Barcelona, will be the 36thinstalment of football’s most intense rivalry of the last decade being broadcast live on SuperSport.
Saturday’s encounter, which is the first of the 2015/16 La Liga season, is live on SS3HD and Maximo from 7pm CAT.
Since 2003, the World of Champions has broadcast the fixture 35 times across various competitions ranging from La Liga, the UEFA Champions League, the Copa del Rey and the Spanish Super Cup.
In that time it has also given birth to the Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo rivalry. The upcoming fixture might not offer the always anticipated ‘Messi versus Cristiano Ronaldo duel’ as the former is in a race against time to be fit due to a knee injury he sustained in late September.
In the build up to match day, SuperSport will broadcast the popular El Clasico – The Movie, a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to stage a match of this magnitude and the match itself from different camera angles. El Clasico – The Movie is currently in circulation across SS3 HD, SS5 HD, SS7 HD and Maximo.
