One of the most anticipated fixtures in world football, the El Classico is set to take place in the 2018-19 season of La Liga as defending champions Barcelona host European Champions on Sunday, October 28th at the Camp Nou Stadium.

Surprisingly, both the giants have not got off to a great start this campaign- Barcelona have lost one and drawn in three games, whereas,  Julen Lopetegui led Real Madrid has suffered the major share of the misery after going through three successive defeats and drawing twice against relatively smaller clubs.

The Galacticos are currently placed in the seventh position with just 14 points, meanwhile Catalan side, Barcelona lead with 18 points- a win for Real Madrid will reduce the gap by just one point and in that sense this would be a massive and a potential turning-point match of the season for both teams because a win for Ernesto Valverde ‘s side will extend their lead by a huge difference of seven points.

This El Clasico will also be without the two showstoppers and the arguably the greatest footballers of all time, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo- the latter departed to ply trade at Italian club Juventus and Barcelona’s Messi suffered a shoulder fracture in the match against Sevilla.

The El Classico existed and was as big as before them as it was after their arrival, this match should be no different.
