"We have to focus on the game and on playing with intensity".

Introduced from the bench for Lionel Messi in November 2005, Iniesta was able bear witness to perhaps the defining performance of Ronaldinho's career as the Brazilian tore apart Madrid almost single-handedly.

"They didn't give us one".

Iniesta's finale will be one of a number of sub-plots running around this weekend's fixture, which carries minimal significance in terms of the La Liga table.

"If they had done the pasillo".

The La Liga title race is over, but Sid Lowe explains why emotions will still be high when Barcelona face Real Madrid for the last time this season. Quite how long he is on the pitch at Camp Nou for the visit of Real Madrid depends on how well he and Barcelona's medical staff soothe the calf injury that has troubled him lately. "Tomorrow we will travel, then we will see if there is any change".

There is a sense in Spain the ceremony has become more about humiliating the defeated team, rather than congratulating the champions.

Real Madrid with their World Club Cup.

Bragging rights. Barcelona has wrapped up the league while Real is in third. Real Madrid have also won more La Liga titles, 33 in total.

"No, not at all", said the Real Madrid boss on Saturday, previewing the trip to Camp Nou. The latter two are still to be decided.

Valverde said: "I have no doubt that he is speaking figuratively because we are all respectful of an opponent's players".

But the ferocity of this rivalry never dims, and plenty of the stars on show will want to make a statement in the latest installment of El Clasico. "It is important for us and we will give everything to hold on to it".

Here was Barcelona at their very best, as the golden generation cemented their place in history with one of the most dominant Clasico victories the world had ever seen. The Catalan club's winning streak started during the late Johann Cryuff's era as coach, 1988-95.

Real's march towards a 13th European triumph has certainly weighed heavily on Barcelona, whose sense of absence has been heightened by the progress of their rivals. Just like Manchester United who came from behind for a shock upset against City in the Premier League at the Etihad, Real Madrid can cause an upset too.
