Barcelona vs Real Madrid is the huge soccer game from Spain taking place on Sunday. The match kicks off at 1.50 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (link provided below).
Barcelona are well ahead in the Spanish La Liga right now and another win today could prove disastrous for Real's hopes of retaining their La Liga title. Barcelona still have a hundred percent record in La Liga so far this year, winning all six of their matches so far.

Real Madrid have been far from perfect, however, and have managed to win just three, drawing one and losing two, of their opening six. That leaves them eight points behind Barcelona coming into this game, and if they lose again today they would be a massive 11 points behind.
One shining light would be that there are only seven games gone in the current season, but 11 points is a massive gap to overturn, and when considering just how few points Barcelona are likely to drop throughout the season, Real will have to go on and win almost all of their remaining games to be in with a realistic prospect of the title.
However, Barcelona's Xavi has said it is too early to say Real will be out of the title race even if they lose on Sunday.
Xavi said prior to today's game, "It would be a big blow to morale for Madrid. It would a very important advantage but we could still lose those points," according to BBC Sport. "A win would give us a lot of confidence because it's our age-old rivals, and would make the league more difficult for them. They are three very important points but the league will not be decided in this match. Regardless of the points difference anything can happen."
Meanwhile, Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho will be hoping they can win this match in the Nou Camp and swing momentum back their way. A win would leave them still five points behind but that is a much better prospect than being 11 points back.
Real have lost to Sevilla and Getafe, as well as only managing a draw against Valencia, and their poor form has disappointed fans and shocked pundits.
In the last five El Clasico matches Barcelona have won twice, and Real have won twice, with one draw.
