This comprehensive and very enjoyable read, gives us an objective view of the rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid. As the author reveals, the story is so much more than a football match. Over the course of El Clasico he manages to successfully weave a sporting, cultural and historical saga into a great story, and this is a great story. Popular myths are exposed to reveal some very surprising truths. We know that El Clasico is biggest football show in town and thanks to Richard Fitzpatrick we now know why.
