- La Liga has published the official date and time for the first El Classico of the season
Barcelona and Real Madrid play the first El Classico of the season on Saturday, October 24th. The match will start at 16:00. While the players are still on international duty, this gives Zidane and Koeman 11 days to prepare for El Classico.
The last match played in Camp Nou ended with a 0-0 and Real Madrid were the better side. Both teams have games in UEFA Champions League before El Classico. Barcelona play Ferencvaros, while Real Madrid plays against Shakthar on Wednesday. This means that Barcelona will have one more day to rest than Real Madrid.
The two team’s previous meeting ended with a 2-0 Real Madrid win at the Bernabeu.
