Manchester United legend David Beckham has chosen his former side Real Madrid to win 1-2 against Barcelona in Sunday's 'El Clasico', while also picking Los Blancos to win their Champions League quarterfinal tie against cross-town rivals, Atletico Madrid.
Beckham's was in Madrid as part of a promotional tour for clothing brand 'H&M', and when asked by Spanish sports daily AS, who he believed would win Sunday's highly-anticipated 'El Clasico' between Real Madrid and Barcelona at the Camp Nou, he remained loyal to his former club.
"Madrid will win 1-2."
'Becks' was then asked who he favoured between Barcelona's Leo Messi and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, but the former English international remained neutral.
"Both of them are the best."
Beckham then took part in an Red Cross event on Friday morning following the Champions League quarterfinals draw, where he was asked who he favoured between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
"My heart wants to go with Madrid, but Atletico has a great manager and a lot of passion. They are a great team."
Beckham played four seasons with Real Madrid's 'Galacticos' squad from 2003 to 2007, winning the Spanish Super Copa in his first season and La Liga in his final season with the club before joining MLS side Los Angeles Galaxy for the next five seasons.
