Lionel Messi and his FC Barcelona teammates have now arrived in Madrid for today’s El Clasico of the Spanish La Liga.

Real Madrid will host Barcelona today at the Santiago Bernabeu.

A few months ago, Barcelona was 12 points behind Atletico Madrid and had no president or plans for the January transfer market.

Barca cut the gap to Diego Simeone’s team to just one point on Monday night.

Barcelona will be crowned Spanish La Liga champions if they win their final games in the league.

New Barcelona president Juan Laporta also traveled with the players to Madrid for the El Clasico game.
