Real Madrid will host arch-rivals Barcelona in the latest instalment of El Clasico in a crucial La Liga 2023-24 encounter at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid, Spain.

The Real Madrid vs Barcelona La Liga 2023-24 match will start at 12:30 AM Indian Standard Time (IST) on Monday, April 22. Live streaming and telecast of the El Clasico will be available in India.

Under the tutelage of manager Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid have been in exceptional form this season and are currently placed at the top of the La Liga 2023-24 standings.

Having registered 24 wins, six draws and just a solitary loss, Los Blancos have accumulated 78 points from 31 matches. They are currently eight points clear of rivals Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Los Blancos will head into the high-profile clash high on confidence after they beat Manchester City in a penalty shoot-out in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals in their previous fixture.

On the other hand, Barcelona will aim to reduce Real Madrid’s La Liga lead to five points with a win to keep the title race alive.

Led by their manager Xavi Hernandez, defending champions Barcelona have been inconsistent in the league this season.

With 21 wins, seven draws and three defeats, the Blaugrana are placed second in the La Liga standings with 70 points from 31 games.

Barcelona will also look to bounce back after a 1-4 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain  in their second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. With the defeat, Barcelona were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League with a 4-6 on aggregate.

In their last meeting in the La Liga, Real Madrid secured a 2-1 win over Barcelona at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys in the ongoing season in October.

However, Barcelona are the reigning champions of La Liga after clinching their 27th league title last season.
