From the United States and Canada to Eastern Europe, South Africa, Brazil, Colombia and India, the host organisations are also getting some El Clásico legends on board, with Patrick Kluivert and Fernando Morientes being just two of the big names involved.
Being one of the only countries to broadcast the match in the morning, the hashtag #WakingUpWithElClasico will be used by La Liga and its fans alike to keep the conversation going as Real Madrid pursue vengeance against their fierce, historical rivals.
Having already been embarrassed 5-1 in October last year, Real Madrid fell short again in the Copa del Rey semi-final last week, losing 3-0 as Luis Suarez scored a brace to make it five goals from two meetings in the 2018-19 season.
Another loss would destroy Real’s hopes of closing the gap between their present 3rd position and league-leaders Barcelona – a deficit which currently stands at 9 points.
