Masters Champion Sergio Garcia “Proud” to Do the Honorary Kick-Off for El Clasico

Masters Champion Sergio Garcia “Proud” to Do the Honorary Kick-Off for El Clasico

Sergio Garcia says he is proud and thrilled to perform the honorary kick-off at this weekend’s El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona.

It’s been a monumental month for Garcia, who won the first major of his career 11 days ago at the 2017 Masters and is due to fulfil a childhood dream on Sunday.

The Spaniard is of course a life-long Real Madrid fan and after revealing last week that he would love the honour of kicking off the match at the Bernabeu, he’s confirmed via his Twitter account that it’s actually going to happen:

And the 37-year-old revealed he will be wearing his green jacket during the game:

Real Madrid are currently top of La Liga with 75 points, while Barcelona sit second with 72 points having played a game more than their rivals.

The teams are of course entering Sunday’s match in very different mindsets, after Madrid sealed their spot in the Champions League semi-finals by thrashing Bayern Munich while Barcelona were eliminated by Juventus.
