What is El Clásico?
Any football game between arch-rivals FC Barcelona and Real Madrid is referred to as El Clásico or simply el clásico.
The phrase can be used for every encounter between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, including those in the UEFA Champions League and Copa del Rey. It originally referred to events held in the Spanish championship but has now gone beyond that.
Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabéu stadium will host the first El Clásico of the upcoming season between Barcelona and Real Madrid on October 16, 2022. The teams will then square off at Camp Nou on March 19, 2023.
However, this year’s El Clasico will also feature an inaugural ‘Soccer Champion Tour’ match between Real Madrid and Barcelona in Las Vegas.

Real Madrid’s first match of their title defense is against Almeria on the south coast, while Barcelona welcomes Rayo Vallecano to Catalonia.
Note that in 2021–2022 Los Blancos won their 35th league championship. The Carlo Ancelotti side is even more potent going into the new campaign after the additions of Antonio Rüdiger and Aurélien Tchouaméni this summer.
