Gol TV Augments Coverage Of FC Barcelona-Madrid Match Sunday


Gol TV is bolstering its support programming around Sunday's "El Clasico" presentation.
The hybrid soccer network, which offers programming in both English and Spanish, will air the match between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid from Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on Nov. 29 at 1 p.m (ET). Before the top-ranked clubs in Spain's La Liga clash, though, Gol TV at noon will give soccer aficionados an in-depth, pre-game show, followed by post-match analysis. Additionally, Gol TV is sending legendary sportscasters Luis Omar Tapia and Eduardo Biscayart to Barcelona's Camp Nou to provide live exclusive, Spanish-language commentary throughout the match, delivered in their uniquely dynamic styles.
Expected to take the field for Real Madrid will be international soccer standouts Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaká and Iker Casillas, while the reigning La Liga and Champions Legue kings FC Barcelona should feature Thierry Henry, Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimović.
"This year's El Clásico is one of the most eagerly awaited, star-packed soccer games in the sport's history," said Enzo Francescoli, CEO and founder of Gol TV, in a statement. "Our pre- and post-match shows will build excitement around the game that will determine La Liga's top club and set the tone for the rest of the season."
