This weekend sees arguably the two biggest fixtures in football take place with Liverpool hosting Manchester United at Anfield and Barcelona taking on Real Madrid.

But it the game in Spain for which we bring you all the details.

The match at the Nou Camp kicks off at 8pm (GMT) on Sunday.

Unlike one of El Clasico meetings last season where the first 15 minutes could not be shown due to broadcasting rights, the entire match will be televised in the UK on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 5.

The result of the match between the two most successful sides in Spanish football will likely be key to where the title ends up at the end of the season. They are currently separated by just one point, with Barcelona at the top of La Liga with 65 points.

Despite the closeness of the sides in the table, the moods in either camps could not be further apart. Real Madrid fans have been incensed in recent weeks by what they perceive to be below-par performances, leading them to turn their ire on their own players.

In contrast, Barcelona have won 16 of 17 matches since they were beaten by David Moyes' Real Sociedad side at the start of January.

Real Madrid won the league meeting between the sides earlier in the season 3-1, whilst the league fixture at the Nou Camp last term saw Barcelona win 2-1.
