Their previous clash in La Liga, held on December 18, 2019 at Camp Nou, resulted in a draw which shows the potential they have.

Now, the reasons this year’s El Clásico is going to be fire are:
The reign of Ernesto Valvarde was put to an end when FC Barcelona signed a new manager, Quique Setién. A 61-year old who has been a proponent of possession based, attacking football throughout his career. This does bring excitement to the fans of FC Barcelona because Quique is bringing back the old playing style of FC Barcelona – Tiki Taka.
FC Barcelona will be seen in a new shape which will lead to an interesting match.
However, Zinedine Zidane is still the manager of Real Madrid.
Both the teams have signed extraordinary players since the last encounter.
Achraf Hakimi, a Spanish 21-year old Right-Back, was loaned by Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund. He is an extremely talented footballer with a good pace.
Whereas FC Barcelona signed a new Centre-Forward, Martin Braithwaite. A Danish footballer aged 28, played for Leganés, is a very talented and dedicated player.
Despite of new manager and new players in this El Clásico, it is still going to be one of the best and most awaited El Clásico of all time. Although Ronaldo’s departure to Juventus has lessen the charm of El Clásico but the fans of both the teams enjoy it as much as they did before.
