Barcelona-Real Madrid hits the big screen
The Observer, November 29th, 2009 7AM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

Barcelona and Real Madrid meet in Sunday's El Clásico, arguably the greatest rivalry in the world. The game kicks off at 7 p.m. Barcelona time (1 p.m. ET), and coverage begins on Spanish channels Canal Plus Liga at 9 a.m. and Gol Television at 11 a.m. (the game is available in the United States on ESPN Deportes and ESPN360.com). For the first time, the game will shown in Spanish movie theaters, where tickets at $12 apiece were sold out in three days.

Giant posters promoted the game: "In High Definition and Dolby Surround Sound: Barça vs Real Madrid, with Cristiano Ronaldo. Leo Messi. Kaka. Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Special guest stars Thierry Henry and Karim Benzema. Directed by Manuel Pellegrini and Pep Guardiola. Soccer as you have never seen it before, in the best cinemas."

The Barcelona sports daily Sport bemoaned the absence of Barca midfield stars Andres Iniesta and Xavi from the cast list. "Leaving them out is like a cast list without [Humphrey] Bogart or Brad Pitt."
