The 2019/2020 campaign kicks off in three weeks with Barcelona playing their opening La Liga fixture away against Athletic Club on Friday, August 16. The world, meanwhile, is looking forward for the first Clasico of the season. And now various Spanish news outlets, including RAC1 and Madrid-based Diario AS reveal the alleged kick-off times of the next term's most crucial games.
- Barcelona are expected to host Real Madrid at the Camp Nou stadium on October 27 with the game to start at 16:00 CET.
- The Catalans are set to travel to the Santiago Bernabeu stadium for the reverse fixture on March 1 with the alleged kick-off time at 20:45 CET.
It should be noted that neither La Liga nor the respective clubs' official media have confirmed this information.
As a reminder, last season Barca won both La Liga Clasicos with a combining score 6-1. The 5-1 showdown at the Camp Nou was particularly spectacular. There were doubts whether the Catalans manage to win as they lost their marksman Leo Messi to a disappointing arm injury. Luckily, Luis Suarez stepped up and scored a hattrick. Two other goals were netted by Philippe Coutinho and Arturo Vidal.
As for the reverse fixture which took place on March 2, it ended with a narrow 1-0 win for the Catalan giants. Ivan Rakitic scored the only goal of the game.
Earlier that season, Barca eliminated Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey semi-finals as they beat them 3-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium just three days before the league Clasico in March.
