Spanish giants Real Madrid and FC Barcelona will clash this Sunday at the Camp Nou in La Liga's headline clash of the first half of the season.

Both sides come into this game with a win in the UEFA Champions League.

Another interesting fact about this game is that it will be the first time in around 15 years that both clubs will face each other without the presence of Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi in either of the teams with both players moving to Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Barcelona dispatched Dynamo Kyiv 1-0 whereas Real Madrid thumped Shakhtar Donetsk 5-0 in Europe's premier club competition.

So, you must be wondering how to watch El Clasico from India considering the whole chaose of last season when La Liga was being livestreamed on Facebook.

Well, here's everything you need to know regarding La Liga's coverage of the El Clasico in India:

Date and time of El Clasico: Sunday, October 24, 7:45pm Indian Standard Time


Where to watch? Since Viacom 18 bought the broadcast rights of La Liga in India, MTV will show the game live on TV whereas Voot app will livestream the game.


Team news:

Barcelona are set to be sweating over the fitness of their star man Pedri and forward Martin Braithwaite. Ronald Araujo and Ousmane Dembele are still out. However, Sergio Aguero, Memphis Depay and Ansu Fati are all set to lead Barcelona's attack. Eric Garcia will also be back from suspension.

For Real Madrid, Gareth Bale and Dani Ceballos are out with long term injuries whereas Luka Jovic, Eden Hazard and Carvajal are all set to miss out on the trip to Camp Nou. Karim Benzema and Vinicius will once again lead the line for Los Blancos.


Head to Head record:

Real Madrid wins: 72

Prediction:

On paper, this will be the weakest/worst XI for both teams in El Clasico history in the last two decades, at least.

However, Real Madrid have been in great form heading into this game which we believe will be pivotal in deciding the result.

FC Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid
