El Clasico 2023 Date and time revealed
The last official encounter between the two teams ended in a 4-0 win for Real Madrid in the second leg semifinal of the Copa del Rey 2022. However, Barcelona defeated Real Madrid 3-0 in their preseason meeting earlier this summer.
Real Madrid have an unconventional new attack with Jude Bellingham emerging as their star goalscorer after the departure of Karim Benzema. On the other hand, Barcelona have reinforced their squad significantly with Joao Felix, Cancelo, Ilkay Gundogan, Oriol Romeu joining and Yamine Lamal breaking into the first team.
It will be interesting to see who gets the advantage in the first big derby of the season, with both teams currently undefeated in the league.
