El Clásico Dates For 2015-16 Are Announced

suarez-neymar-messiThe Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) have announced that the most watched rivalry in world football will see Real host defending champions Barca on November 8 at the Bernabeu. Buy El Clasico Tickets

The reverse league fixture falls in the spring of 2016, with Barcelona hosting Real in a potentially crucial April 3 tie, with merely seven games before the end of the season.

Barca will not have new signings Aleix Vidal and Arda Turan available for the big game in Madrid, but both players will be eligible for selection in the reverse fixture at the Camp Nou on April 3.

Last season’s Clasico’s fell the saw way. Luis Enrique took his side to the Spanish capital first, in October, in a game which saw Luis Suarez make his debut as Madrid picked up the three points with a convincing 3-1 victory.

Suarez scored the winner later in the season, though, when Barça beat Madrid 2-1 at Camp Nou to go four points clear of Real Madrid, a gap that Carlos Ancelotti’s side never was able to close.

A new manager will get a taste of El Clasico again this season, with Rafa Benitez having taken over from Carlo Ancelotti in Los Blancos’ dugout.

To add to the spice of this rivalry, the match in April comes only three days before the first league of the Champions League quarter-final, so both managers will have to balance their team with two big games in three days.

    To say that it was an entertaining match is an understatement. Both sides played with such intensity and precision that it was unthinkable for me to miss a second of the action.

    However, the world-class quality of play from both Real Madrid and Barcelona meant that one should go down no matter how undeserving it would seem… and I thought it would’ve been Real Madrid who wouldn’t be able to put up much resistance. I was wrong. They played brilliantly throughout and I even thought the game should’ve been 2-2 after that Bale goal. Sadly, the refs played gods once more. Phew.
