Gaizka Mendieta loves El Clasico
- By Staff Writer Follow @insidelaliga
“I played in the Rome derby between Lazio and Roma which was nearly at that level in terms of intensity and I know that derbies in England are very passionate but for me the Clasico is the most amazing derby there is, anywhere.
“There will be 110,000 people at the Nou Camp which will be absolutely incredible. It is so good it is almost indescribable. They are eternal rivals.
“The rivalry between the two clubs is an historic thing but it is so intense because these days in Spain it is about Barcelona and Real Madrid more than ever.”
Barcelona host Real Madrid at the Nou Camp on Saturday evening.
