Real Madrid will host FC Barcelona for the first Clásico of the 2015/16 season on November 21 at 20:30 CET. There is a long way to go and many matches ahead of us before that Clásico kicks-off, anyway.

Madrid played well against Barcelona last year, winning 3-1 at the Bernabéu and losing 2-1 at the Camp Nou after dominating two thirds of the match. The two Liga BBVA matches against Barcelona could very well decide the Liga BBVA title, knowing how tight the race for the title is. It would be important for Madrid to be ahead of Barça in the table when the match starts, as the pressure would be on Messi and Co. to get the three points if they want to stay on Madrid's heels.

The referee for this first Clásico of the season has not been named yet. Stay tuned for more news about this crucial match.
