As the new season approaches, all eyes are on Kylian Mbappé, set to potentially debut in this historic rivalry after his high-profile move to Madrid from Paris Saint-Germain. Joining him in the spotlight is Brazilian prodigy Endrick, whose imminent transfer from Palmeiras to Madrid adds further excitement and speculation to this iconic fixture.

Ahead of the La Liga kickoff on August 18, fans can witness an early preview of the action as Madrid and Barcelona meet in a summer friendly at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on August 3. This pre-season encounter not only sets the stage for tactical insights but also fuels the competitive spirit between the two football powerhouses.

The significance of the Clásico extends beyond mere competition; it symbolizes a clash of football ideologies, legacies, and aspirations. For Real Madrid, securing back-to-back La Liga titles under President Florentino Pérez remains an elusive feat, adding extra motivation to their campaign strategy. Meanwhile, Barcelona, under the helm of coach Hansi Flick, aims to reclaim its dominance with a refreshed lineup and renewed determination.

Barca will ‘welcome’ their arch-rivals on May 11, only four matchdays before the end of the campaign in a potentially La Liga-deciding encounter. Blaugrana fans will hope to be back at the Camp Nou by then — Barca are planning to return by the end of the year — although the €1.5billion (£1.3bn; $1.6bn) project has suffered its fair share of setbacks.

It is unusual to see the second league Clasico taking place on the 35th matchday — the latest since a 2-2 draw on the 36th matchday of the 2017-18 season, when a Barca side featuring Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Andres Iniesta had already been crowned champions in the previous match.
