​The final 'El Clasico' is a mere three days away, and football fans across the globe will certainly be glued to their TVs and laptop screens for the duration of the match.

Real Madrid and Barcelona will clash once more at the Santiago Bernabeu in what promises to be yet another thrilling installment in the history of these two footballing giants, as Los Blancos go in search of opening up a six-point gap over their bitter rivals in the battle for the La Liga title.

With social media - and Twitter in particular - likely to be inundated with plenty of comments, opinions and stats before, during and after the match, the social media giant has gone out of its way to celebrate the last encounter of 2016/17 between Real and Barca by creating its own player emojis. No, really, take a look:

Not content with just being able to use a hahtag for each club separately, complete with each club's badge, anytime a player's hashtag is used throughout the game they will be accompanied by their own emoji of that player's face, as well as a dual kit when the El Clasico hastag itself is used.


Technology has come a long way in recent years but, given the remarkable likeness of each player, this is extremely cool by our standards.
