- Real Madrid stars saw their club’s basketball team beat Barcelona 65-64

- Listen to the latest episode of the Mail Sport podcast “It’s starting!”
Real Madrid’s star players, including Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior, were in attendance at last night’s basketball El Clasico.
The Englishman and Brazilian were accompanied by teammates Rodrygo and Aurelien Tchouameni as they watched their club’s basketball team beat Barcelona with a narrow 65-64 victory.
They will certainly hope to do the same on Saturday when Los Blancos take on Barcelona in a highly anticipated La Liga game.
Despite the strong 1-1 draw against Sevilla at the weekend, Madrid currently sits first in the league with 25 points.
Barcelona are in third place, just one point behind Girona and Madrid, but could overtake both with a win in El Clasico.

The two teams played each other four times last year and won twice each.
Since the very first El Clasico was played in 1902, there has been almost nothing to separate them.
Barcelona have won the historic game 100 times, while Real Madrid have 101 wins.
However, for British fans wanting to catch a glimpse of Bellingham’s game against Barca, the game will not be broadcast live on television.
This is due to long-standing UK broadcasting rights regarding the 3pm blackout.
Despite the Barcelona basketball team’s defeat last night, they are currently the reigning Spanish basketball champions after Madrid won the league the year before.
