The next edition of this historic rivalry is set to kick off at 6.00am Sydney time on the 19th of December, and you won’t miss a minute of the action when watching at home or streaming live using one of the options listed in this programming guide.
2019 Real Madrid v Barcelona Preview
Known in Spain as El Clasico, this match-up takes place a minimum of two times per year when the sides are scheduled to play each other during the La Liga season. Barcelona have had the better of their rivals from the nation’s capital in terms of all competitive games played between the teams, but just barely. In 242 games, they have won 96 games compared to Real Madrid’s 95, while 51 games have resulted in draws. Incredibly, the record is even tighter in La Liga games – each side has won 72 of the 178 clashes in the national league, with 34 resulting in draws. Clearly, very little has separated the clubs over the years, and that has only served to add further intensity to the rivalry which resumes on December 19th (2019) and March 1st, 2020.
This season, the two sides are neck-and-neck at the top of the La Liga table just under halfway through the season. Barcelona, however, head into the match-up having won the last two editions of El Clasico and four of the past five, and are widely regarded as the better team this season. Couple that with a home advantage and they will be the favourites in this clash, but the level of intensity each and every player brings to this match-up means that counting out either team is done at your own peril.
