La Liga President Javier Tebas announced this Wednesday that the second El Clasico of the 2019-2020 Liga season between Real Madrid and Barcelona will be played on Sunday, March 1st kicking off at 21:00 CEST.

This will be a very important match for both clubs, who are competing for the Liga title and are currently even on points.

Real Madrid outplayed Barcelona during the first match played at the Camp Nou but had to settle for a draw. Zinedine Zidane and his men will surely be hoping to get the three points now that they will play at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Eden Hazard will be expected to be back with the team for this match. The Belgian star had to miss the first meeting with Barcelona with the foot injury he picked up against PSG and is still recovering, with reports from the Spanish press suggesting that he will try to be back for February’s Madrid Derby against Atletico de Madrid.
