El Clasico time: Barcelona vs Real Madrid date and kick-off time confirmed for 1 March 2020.
What time is El Clasico? What time does El Clasico kick off UK time? Barcelona vs Real Madrid: La Liga confirm new date and time for second El Clasico of season. Barcelona and Real Madrid will face off in the 2nd El Clasico of the 2019/20 season on March 1 at 8 pm GMT.
Now it’s time for the first El Clasico match of the 2019/20 season. It has been a challenging season for both clubs. The biggest news, of course, is that Cristiano Ronaldo has left Real Madrid after nine seasons and the new number 7 Eden Hazard has not stepped up to the plate.
Now the meringues can do without the Portuguese and the start of the season has been anything but easy. Three points against Barca are incredibly important. For Barcelona, the season has not gone very well either. However, they are now at the top of the table.
Quique Setien’s men might be at the top of the La Liga but there have been many surprising results in the first few months. They did not win in their first four games in the league and dropped points until recently. However, in the last match they picked up 3 points by beating Eibar 5-0.

The first El Clasico of the 2019/20 season has been scheduled to take place on Sunday, 1 March. However, there was some confusion over when the match will be played, in the afternoon or late evening. It has now been decided it will be played at night at 21:00 CET. Initially, it was reported that it could take place even at 13.00. It was widely accepted by the Asian fans since they would be able to view it at a normal hour but not for the European ones. Finally, after considering all factors, the time, date and place of the El Clasico has been set. It is a pity that it lasted so long. Let’s hope that by that time no further adjustments for this tie as the reverse fixture has already been set for 1 March 2020.
What happened the last time: Barca were supposed to host the Galacticos at Camp Nou on Saturday, 20 October 2019 but the game got postponed by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF). Both clubs rejected a suggestion that the game could be played at Real’s Santiago Bernabeu Stadium instead and offered December 18 as their preferred option.

That date was agreed by RFEF, and El Clasico will now kick off at 8 pm GMT (9 pm CET) on Sunday, 1 March 2020. The rivals could have also met in a potential Supercopa final in Saudi Arabia in January after they were missed each other in the semi-final draw. Real faced Valencia, while Barca will took on Atletico Madrid. Barca lost in the semi final leading to Valverde getting sacked. Real beat Atletico in the final.
The original fixture was postponed following mass protests in Barcelona after nine Catalan political leaders were given lengthy prison sentences for their roles in the 2017 Catalan independence referendum. Barca had urged the federation to allow the game to go ahead, saying it had “the utmost confidence in the civilised and pacifist attitude of its members and fans who always express themselves in exemplary fashion at Camp Nou”.

The first El Clasico could have been over and done with by now but due to various security reasons, it had to be postponed to December. Of course, there was suggestions of holding it at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu but both clubs refused to come to a compromise. After much consideration, they decided to meet at Camp Nou on 18 December 2019. It was a draw 0-0.
Now the second leg comes with high expectations. You can expect to watch the El Clasico through live stream in the UK at 8 PM (GMT).
