    So no Ronaldo or Messi in the Classico next week. When was the last time neither played in this fixture?

    All of a sudden what was regarded as the biggest club game in Europe has lost a big part of its appeal.

    Still easily the biggest game in Club football.

    Agreed in terms of the quality of the players still on display, nothing else comes close. Nearest you'll get is probably Liverpool Man City the other week for quality. However it's definitely lost a bit of shine now 2 of the greatest players of all time aren't taking part.

    If they were, or even if just Messi was playing, I'd probably tune in. But now he's not I won't be as fussed about seeing it.

    Anyone who turns off because Messi isn't playing, or thinks in any way that Messi not playing results in Barcelona being */weaker/not worth it need their head checked.

    So much more talent in that squad than just one man. Same goes for Madrid and not having Ronaldo any more.


    Biggest club game in the world is El Classico, regardless who is playing (extreme circumstances if they all end up playing 16 year olds aside).

    The real reason I turn off is I’m not interested in anything other than Celtic but to be able to watch the most gifted footballer of all time paint his pictures through my generation is something I won’t miss. Was similar with Iniesta for me because he’s up there.

    Don't understand your first point? Obviously if you don't have arguably the greatest player of all time in your team you're going to be considered weaker. That's just common sense. Yes, in the grand scheme of things Barca still have unbelievable talent in the squad, but it doesn't matter if it was a Madrid and Barca select side. Without Messi you're not going to be considered as strong as you could be, therefore you're weakened surely.

    I turn off because I'm only watching to see him in the first place

    Espanyol 1 up at Huesca. Up to second if they win.

    They haven’t been great but that’s just beyond stupid at this stage.
