The day has come.
Postponed at the time for security reasons, the classic of this December 18 finds Barcelona and Real Madrid in a fairly even state. Both schools arrive matched in points and in the first position of the table, something that does not happen years ago. A balance that aspires to break with goals and hopefully good football.
Matched, in fact, is the word that is most repeated in the specialized press to refer to this meeting. In addition to the points, the sensations they provoke before the Classic one and the other also tend to balance: the Bara usually suffers away from home, but is unbeatable in the Camp Nou; Madrid, on the other hand, usually responds better than visiting as a host. And although at the end of October when the classic should have been played, Barcelona seemed stronger on paper, as of today Madrid seems to have finally found its own game.

Let's see: if you want to see it in a bar, it's simple. You go to one that has television and in which they usually broadcast sporting events, and ask the administrator or the waiter to tune it. For the time it is, I assure you there will be no problem. More if it is a sports bar with dozens of televisions: in more than some insurance they will put it.
Now, if you want to see it in a bar with some more atmosphere, in the big cities there are always special places to meet to see good football, especially a Classic.
The best information from where to see it in your city is usually provided by the same "Peas" of followers, both from one and another club. In addition to giving you sports information, they tell you where in the city they will meet to watch the game. If you sympathize with Real Madrid, you can see their Peas information here. If, on the other hand, you are a fan of Messi, Arturo Vidal and Surez, you can know where to meet your peers by clicking here.
Mixed environment, on both sides? Of course, there are always places that welcome white and Blaugrana followers alike. If you are for Manhattan, we advise you to go through Smithfield, although it arrives early, because even if you arrive an hour before the game it is almost certain that you will not find a place.
If you are for The Angels It might be a good idea to see him at the Goal bar on W 3rd Street. If you are in Dallas, what happened to me at the Rugby House Pub in Plano, Tx. In Miami We recommend Fado Irish Pub, and in Chicago The best atmosphere is usually lived in The Globe Pub, although if you are under 21 they will not let you in
What has been said: alternatives, there are hundreds, and if you don't see it, it is because you don't want to (or because you have an indispensable obligation in another place). At this point, Barcelona is practically worth only the victory, if it wants to have any real chance of winning the League. Madrid comes with more advantage, s: but it always complicates Blaugrana visits. We will see what happens. Just in case, go preparing your throat Hala Madrid! Visit the Bara!
