Hello good afternoon and welcome to our coverage of the Spanish La Liga clash between Real Madrid and Arsenal.
A Clasico without Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.
That is that we have today – for the first time since 2007.
But as Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde reminds us.
“The Clasico existed before that. The Clasico has always been the Clasico, and there were even flying pigs.”
