When and where is the next El Clasico match for the 2023/24 season? Soccergator has all the details on this season's 2023/24 matchups, including the dates, times, and locations.
From its origins in 1902, El Clásico between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid has evolved into much more than a football match. It's an amalgamation of history, culture, and footballing geniuses (Messi/Ronaldo), followed religiously by millions across the globe. Each year, 400 million tune in to watch the rivalry unfold — that's twice the viewership of the Super Bowl.
Real Madrid has won 102 times in official, competitive matches, while Barcelona has won 100 times, with 52 draws. This slight edge highlights the high-stakes drama that unfolds every time these football titans meet on the field. The teams split points last season, but the Catalan side held the upper hand. Xavi's side defeated Real Madrid 2-1 last March at Camp Nou to stretch the lead toward their first La Liga title since 2019.

Mark the date: FC Barcelona will face Real Madrid in their first La Liga clash of the 2023/24 season on Sunday, October 28, at 16:15 PM CET and 10:15 AM Eastern Standard Time (EST). Due to ongoing renovations at Camp Nou, FC Barcelona uses Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium as their home ground for this season. Note that marquee player Frenkie de Jong is out for over a month with an ankle injury and may miss the first match. Meanwhile, Pedri could be back 100% from injury early to cover.
The return fixture at Real Madrid's home ground, the Santiago Bernabéu, is set for either April 20 or 21.
