This Saturday, the two titans of Spanish soccer meet again for yet another El Clásico. Real Madrid. Barcelona. One of the greatest, if not the greatest, sporting rivalry in the world.

Right now, only two draws separate these bitter rivals and granted, if Real runs the table even if it loses to Barça this Saturday at Camp Nou, the Merengues will win La Liga, but still, this Saturday is going to be a clash as always. First off, both Real and Barça are literally heads and shoulders above the rest of La Liga competition, with Madrid at 85 points, Barcelona at 81, and third-place Valencia at 52 points. Then add the fact that Ronaldo has 41 goals in La Liga for Real and Messi has 41 goals for Barça and this is going to get good.

These global titans could also even meet in the 2012 Champions League championship on May 19 in Munich, if each team wins its semifinal slot. So basically, both teams win their CL matches (Barça will be facing Chelsea in London and Real has to play in Munich against Bayern, then the week after, the second legs will all be in Spain) and the Saturday matchup at Camp Nou could potentially also be a Champions League preview. In the end, this week will be exciting for two of the world's most popular clubs.

So, who do are you rooting for? Tell us why!

Here is a little video tribute that we think will put a smile of your face.
