The ElClasico is widely regarded as the greatest game in the history of club football. The El Clasico is contested by the two major teams in Spanish football namely Barcelona and Real Madrid. Michael Laudrup was one of the few players that was not drowned in the occasion of the El Clasico as pointed out by the man himself during an exclusive interview with DAZN two years ago. Michael Laudrupwas asked for his pick between winning atrophy and winning the two El Clasicomatches in the league. His answer was clear as he opted for winning a trophy ahead of winning the two El Clasico games.

Michael Laudrup was one of the players to play for both Real Madrid and Barcelona. He had an unforgettable experience between 1993/94 and 1994/95. Michael Laudrup was an important player for Barcelona until the arrival of Brazilian striker Romario. Barcelona manager Johann Cryuff was restricted by the rule of three foreign players at most at once. Barcelona had four foreign players namely HistroStoichkov, Romario, Ronald Koeman and Michael Laudrup. Michael Laudrup was often the player to miss outand this led to his decision to leave the club at the end of the 1993/94 campaign.
In his final El Clasico for Barcelona, Danish playmaker Michael Laudrup came off the bench to score and provide an assist as Barcelona thrashed Real Madrid 5-0 at home. Ronald Koeman and Romario gave Barcelona a 2-0 advantage before Michael Laudrupreplaced Bulgarian football legend HistroStoichkov in the opening minutes of the second half. Romario added two goals to complete his hattrickwith Michael Laudrup setting him up for the goal that completed the treble for the Brazilian. Ivan Iglesias also found the back of the net to complete the 5-0 win. Later that season, favourites Barcelona were beaten 4-0 by an injury hit AC Milan team in the European Cup final. Michael Laudrup was left out of the Barcelona squad because of stricter foreign player rules.
