A compilation of Clásico wizadry and trickery from the two Barça greats.

A kind of magic from Messi and Maradona in El Clásico

One dream, one soul, one prize, one goal, one golden glance of what should be. It's a kind of magic.

The Real Madrid-Barça clashes have featured an array of footballing greats down the years, from Di Stéfano, Kubala, Gento and Maradona to Ronaldo, Zidane, Messi and Cristiano… but it's the two Argentinians who have probably produced the greatest mind-bending skill of all.

Maradona was in imperious form in the 1982-83 campaign, and his goal, leaving Juan José on his backside, has left an indelible mark on this fixture.

Leo Messi, meanwhile, arguably wears the Clásico crown with his performances year in, year out. From the moment he broke into the Barça first team he has dazzled onlookers, with the highlight quite possibly his mesmerising individual effort in 2011.
