The 2020-21 La Liga season has ushered in a new era for Barcelona, after the ructions associated with the news that talisman Lionel Messi wanted to leave.

He stayed, but it is fair to say that the Catalan side has undergone some hardship in recent seasons, with a failure to pick up a single title in the 2019-20 season and continued faltering in the Champions League.

Real Madrid are defending their Liga title under Zinedine Zidane and Spain’s showpiece fixture inevitably promises to be one of the most highly anticipated match-ups in football.

Goal has what you need to know about when the Clasico will take place this season and more.

When is the next Clasico?

The next Clasico will be held at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano on April 10, 2021. The game will kick off at 8pm GMT (3pm ET).

It will be held at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano because the Santiago Bernabeu is undergoing extensive renovations.

Real Madrid have the upper hand on their bitter rivals, having won the first Clasico of the season in October, beating Barcelona 3-1 at Camp Nou.

Federico Valverde, Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric all netted for the away side to cancel out Ansu Fati’s first-half strike.

Fati’s goal made him the youngest Clasico scorer in 21st century, breaking Vinicius Jr’s record.

Real Madrid were crowned winners of La Liga for the 34th time in 2020.
