… Messi might not partake in the battle today!
The first El Clasico of the season will take place at the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of November in one of five La Liga fixtures on Saturday 21
Real Madrid will host Barcelona in the first El Clasico of the season on Saturday November 21 at 6.15pm CET (5.15pm GMT), it has been confirmed by the Liga de Futbol Profesional (LFP).
The Spanish rivals, who sit joint-top of La Liga after eight matches alongside Celta Vigo on 18 points, will meet for the first time this campaign at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Madrid won the previous home meeting in October after goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe and Karim Benzema sealed a 3-1 victory, despite Barca initially taking the lead inside four minutes through Neymar.
Yet last seasons’ La Liga winners emerged victorious in the reverse fixture at Camp Nou in March – the last time the two met – with goals from Jeremy Mathieu and Luis Suarez falling in either half of a 2-1 win.
