LaLiga fixtures: First Real Madrid-Barcelona Clásico on Oct. 27

LaLiga released its fixtures for the 2024-25 season on Tuesday, with the first Clásico between Real Madrid and Barcelona scheduled to take place on Oct. 27 at the Bernabéu.

The two sides faced off three times last season — twice in LaLiga and again in the Spanish Super Cup final — with Madrid winning all three, most memorably when Jude Bellingham led a remarkable comeback and scored a stoppage-time winner in the the first league clash.

Next season’s first LaLiga Clásico could be Kylian Mbappé‘s competitive debut in the famous rivalry, having joined Madrid on a free transfer this summer after his contract at Paris Saint-Germain expired. It could also be the first for Brazil wonderkid Endrick, with his move from Palmeiras to Madrid set to formally take place next month.

The second clash will take place on May 11.

Before the season begins, Madrid and Barça will meet in a summer friendly at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Aug. 3.

Barça begin their league season away at Valencia, while Madrid travel to Mallorca, both on Aug. 18.

Madrid visit cross-city rivals Atlético Madrid on Sept. 29, with the return fixture taking place on Feb. 9.

Madrid won a record-extending 36th LaLiga title last season, while Barcelona finished 10 points behind in second place.
