El Clasico and Derby della Madonnina

El Clásico(April 23) is the name given in football to any match between fierce rivals Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. Real Madrid leads the head to head results in competitive matches with 93 wins to Barcelona's 90, while Barcelona leads in total matches with 109 wins to Real Madrid's 97. Along with Athletic Bilbao, they are the only clubs in La Liga to have never been relegated.

Derby della Madonnina (Inter vs Milan) is next week as well.
Sporting vs Benfica in two weeks. Title race has 1 point between the Benfica and Porto and we're unbeaten at home in the league for over a year I'm pretty sure.
