La Liga has announced the date and time of the final Clasico of the season according to a Diario Sport report. Barcelona will travel to the Santiago Bernabeu to face Real Madrid on March 20 at 21:00 CET in a big 29 day match.
Real Madrid are currently 15 points adrift of Barcelona in the league standings, although Xavi Hernandez’s outfit has a game in hand. Los Blancos are fighting Sevilla for the title as things stand still despite dropping six points from Andalusian.
Barcelona are trying to get out of fifth-placed Atletico Madrid and are chasing third-placed Real Betis to narrow their place in the top four. Qualifying for the Champions League is their ambition.
Real Madrid travel south to Andalusia to face Sevilla in Sanchez-Pizjuan three weeks after El Clasico, so if Barcelona can beat Carlo Ancelotti’s team that match will automatically take on greater importance. Barcelona will enjoy that.
