Barcelona attacker Neymar looking forward to first El Clasico

Barcelona attacker Neymar is looking forward to his first El Clasico against Real Madrid this weekend.

Neymar famously trialled at Real as a teenager but never was signed.

"Yes, the Clásico is the most important game for any player. It's the match every player wants to play in, it's the game where each player wants to play his best football. This will be my first Clásico and I hope to have a great debut, preferably with a victory.

"I think the anxiety is the same before any match. I understand that we're talking about a very important Clásico but I think that butterfly-in-the-stomach feeling is the same before any game."
