I’ve been watching the Champions League games for ten years or more, and I’ve been waiting for El Clásico games which oppose Real Madrid to Barcelona every year, however I’ve noticed this year that most restaurants (Roadster & Crepaway for example) and some pubs are covering the game and there’s a lot of talk about it almost anywhere I go.

I don’t know where all this love for Spanish clubs came from, maybe it’s the Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi phenomena spreading to Lebanon but I would not be surprised if you see car convoys cheering for the winning team tonight like what happens during the World Cup.

I am a Bayern Munchen fan but I am cheering for Real Madrid tonight.

Here are few match facts [Match Facts], a nice comparison on whose better, Messi or Ronaldo and a selection of few key heads-to-heads. [Link]
