One of the most eagerly anticipated games in world football, the Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid is always the most watched fixture globally, bar none.

This Sunday will be no different, with the Camp Nou set to be packed to the rafters while fans all around the world tune in to watch this clash of titans between the greatest clubs in Spanish football.

Keen to recognise how important the support of their fans will be in this Clasico, Barcelona have prepared a spectacular fan mosaic ahead of the match against Real Madrid – as revealed on their official website - which underlines the importance of supporters and how much they can play their part, in cheering the team to victory.

When the two sides take to the pitch, the fans will raise the coloured cards to form the display, principally as a demonstration of unity, with the words 'Players' and 'Fans' appearing either side of a shirt bearing the number twelve, signifying, quite literally, that the Barcelona fans are their 12th man. The mosaic around the whole stadium will be comprised of around 98,000 cards.

There's no game quite like the Clasico and as if the importance of the encounter wasn't enough in itself, Barcelona and Real Madrid are battling for top spot in La Liga. Currently sitting at the summit and ahead of Real Madrid by just a point, Barcelona could either extend their lead to four points, or sit two points behind their eternal rivals come the final whistle.
