The always highly anticipated matchup takes place today, as El Clasico will kick off this afternoon from Camp Nou. Real Madrid will look to make some ground on Barcelona, as the defending league champions are already eight points behind league-leading Barcelona. In 222 all-time meetings, Real Madrid holds 88 wins, while Barcelona holds 87.
Meanwhile, Clint Dempsey will look to follow up last week's performance for Tottenham, as the American scored his first goal with his new club. He will take on fellow Americans Brad Guzan and Eric Lichaj of Aston Villa, who are off to a slow start this season. Another pair of Americans, Geoff Cameron and Maurice Edu, will travel to Anfield with Stoke City as they take on Liverpool.
In Italy, another set of rivals will be matching up, as AC Milan will take on Inter Milan at San Siro in the Milan Derby. Inter Milan won both matchups during the regular season last year.
Stateside, the Cascadia Cup could be clinched by the end of the day, as the Portland Timbers travel to CenturyLink Field to take on the Seattle Sounders. Despite a troublesome 2012, Portland leads the Cascadia Cup standings with eight points with two Cup matches left.
