The self-styled biggest game in world football takes on a different significance Saturday as Barcelona pay homage to legendary former player and coach Johan Cruyff for the visit of Real Madrid in El Clasico.Barca's little more than a decade of dominance has been propelled by the brilliance of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez on the pitch and astute coaching of Frank Rijkaard, Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique from the touchline.Yet, they are all united by a style and philosophy implemented by Cruyff over 20 years ago that continues to serve Barca today.Rarely has any side displayed such spectacular attacking football as the Barca 2015/16 version.When Cruyff arrived as a player from Ajax in 1973, Barca hadn't won the league in 13 years.
