Why, How and When to Watch El Clásico


When is El Clasico?


Number 238 in this incredible rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid takes place in Barca's Camp Nou stadium on Sunday October 28th with the action kicking off at 11:15AM ET / 8:15AM PT. ​


What's at stake on Sunday?


A sporting rivalry that has lasted for over a century is always a must-win match for either Barcelona and Real Madrid. But the latest edition has even more spice to it. 

The future of Real Madrid's under-fire coach, Julen Lopetegui, hangs in the balance. 

A poor start to the season and fan unrest sees the fate of Lopetegui being decided against the club's fiercest rivals. A win, and the pressure is eased off the manager's back and Real Madrid wins bragging rights, as well as moving to within one point of Barcelona in the standings. 

A defeat? Lopetegui could be looking for a new job on Monday. 

With the injured Lionel Messi on the sidelines, Barca's expensively-assembled squad needs to prove that it is more than a one-man team. Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele were brought in for a cost of $250 million for matches just like Sunday's. A defeat will see Barca's expensive project derailed. 

El Clasico brings together the most gifted soccer players on the planet onto one pitch. It pits multiple World Cup and Champions League winners against each other for 90 minutes of breathtaking action and drama.
