Barcelona and Real Madrid contest El Clasico

By Chris Dinsdale

December 18, 2019 - La Liga rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid meet in the 243rd El Clasico, one of the fiercest rivalries in Spanish football. This season’s contest at Camp Nou was postponed from October 26, due to civil unrest in Barcelona.

With Barcelona and Real Madrid level on points at the top of the table, victory for either of the Spanish giants in the 243rd El Clasico could have a huge impact on the destination of the La Liga title.

Barcelona secured victories in three of their four contests in the 2018-19 season, including a 5-1 demolition in the La Liga clash at Camp Nou. A semi-final win over two legs in the Copa del Rey semi-finals followed, before a narrow one-goal triumph at the Santiago Bernabeu in March.
