The second Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona of the season has a set time and date

Madrid, Spain – The second Clasico of the season between Real Madrid and Barcelona has a set time and date. The Santiago Bernabeu will host the game on Sunday, April 23 at 2:45pm ET.

RAC1 reports that 33rd week will end with the Clasico as the prime-time game of the day.

Although Barcelona have won their last three visits at Bernabeu, Zinedine Zidane’s sway has shown that nothing is impossible. The Whites are certain that they will continue to fight until the end to maintain their lead in La Liga.

The first leg at Camp Nou, played on December 3, ended with a draw to a goal. In that match the scorers were Luis Suarez and Sergio Ramos.

Additionally, El Clasico is rumored to take place in Miami this summer in a friendly clash for the first time ever. ESPN Deportes Jorge Ramos y su Banda confirmed the fixture.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo may miss the clash in Miami if it coincides with the Confederations Cup. A tournament hosted by Russia this summer.

Miami was chosen as the venue due to its football-mad Hispanic population. Over 70 per cent of people in the city speak Spanish as their first language.

In 2015, La Liga president Javier Tebas ruled out ever playing a Clasico overseas.

He said: “El Clasico will never be played outside of Spain. It’s a key game in our league competition and has a huge international prestige. We’ll study the possibility of playing certain games outside or Spain bu at the present this initiative doesn’t form part of our international expansion plans.”
