The two giants have made somewhat underwhelming starts to the 2020/21 campaign, but that will be irrelevant come kick-off, when three points and plenty of bragging rights will be on the line.

When is El Clasíco?

The first instalment of El Clasíco for the new season kicks off at 1am AEDT on Sunday 25 October.

Who will win El Clasíco?

After Lionel Messi's dramatic off-season, when he seemed destined to leave before opting to stay for likely one more year, Barca have started the year with two wins, one loss and a draw. That leaves them in ninth at the time of writing. Messi also lost his sparring partner Luis Suarez, who is now scoring goals for Atletico Madrid.

Real Madrid, who lost Gareth Bale to Tottenham during the transfer period, aren't faring a whole lot better to date. They have played one more game and have one more win, putting them in third, three points ahead of their great rivals. But the Whites are coming off consecutive defeats in the league and Champions League.

Someone needs to provide a spark and that typically falls to Messi. With very little confidence, we'll lean towards a win for the home team and a compounding of Madrid's troubles.
