It has been a while since Real Madrid has been in this position. FC Barcelona has had such a stronghold on "La Liga" in recent years that it is now inconceivable to believe that they may now be on the verge of being unseated as the best team in La Liga. But with a victory in this "Clasico", Real Madrid can almost assure itself La Liga title. A loss means that their once daunting lead has been trimmed to 1 point. Definitely a decisive Clasico!
