El Classico: Everything you need to know about Real Madrid v Barcelona

When is Real Madrid V Barcelona?

Real Madrid take on Barcelona at the Bernabeu on Sunday at 15:15pm.

How Can I Watch Real Madrid v Barcelona?

The game will be shown live on Premier Sports 1 with coverage starting at 3pm.

Form Guide

Both sides come into El Classico after failing to win their midweek Champions League games. Real Madrid needed an injury time equaliser from Antonio Rudiger to draw 1-1 away to Shaktar Donetsk in which the home team's club director gave a heartwarming speech afterwards.


Barcelona meanwhile had an entertaining 3-3 draw at home to Inter Milan. The result was damaging to the club's hope of reaching the last 16 and they will likely face another successive season dropping down to the Europa League. Having to play in Europe's 2nd string competition will likely damage the club's finances even more.

Domestically, the fierce rivals have identical records. Both teams have 7 wins and 1 draw with 8 games played in La Liga. Managers Carlo Ancelotti and Xavi will be hoping that the similarity ends with this game and to gain an upper hand in the title race.

The club from the Spanish capital have had the better record in the fixture recently, winning 4 out of the past 5. However, their most recent defeat came last year at home with Barcelona running riot at the Bernabeu winning 4-0. Real Madrid will be wanting to amend that when they face off against their rivals.


New Barcelona Shirt Sponsor

The Catalan Club will have a new sponsor for El Classico. Instead of the usual Spotify logo, there will be an OVO owl representing Drake as he became the first artist to reach 50 billion streams on Barcelona's sponsor.

With a lot of history behind this fixture, it rarely disappoints, and fans will be hoping to see another entertaining battle on Sunday.
