Assuming he plays on Saturday, the midfielder will make it to 32 clásicos, beating the record held by Segarra (31) for matches against the old enemy.
Also, Carles Puyol will equalise Migueli’s 13 league appearances against the all-whites at the Camp Nou.
He played Real Madrid for the first time in 2000 at the Santiago Bernabéu, a game that also featured Pep Guardiola and Carles Puyol. Since then, he has made it to 23 clásicos in the league, which included one goal scored in last year’s famous 5-0 drubbing of Madrid at the Camp Nou. His total of 31 clásicos also includes 3 games in the Copa del Rey, 3 in the Champions League and 2 in the Spanish Supercup.
Although Xavi holds the outright record, he is not the man to have played Real Madrid the most times at the Camp Nou. That honours falls to Migueli, who played 13 home matches against the side from the Spanish capital. But Barcelona captain Carles Puyol stands to equal that record on Saturday. Behind them in the list are César (12), Rifé (11), Asensi (10) and Rexach (10). (via FCBarcelona.com)
