In the 2024/25 season, Real Madrid will have the home advantage in the first fixture against Barcelona. El Clasico is first scheduled to be played at the Santiago Bernabeu on 27 October, 2024.

There is a high likelihood that Kylian Mbappe could make his "El Clasico debut" in this fixture, providing he is fit and not suspended at that time. If his start to life in La Liga goes anything like it is expected to, he could play a BIG role in this fixture.

Then, the next El Clasico in La Liga is scheduled to be played at Camp Nou on May 11. This is an exciting clash for fans to think about as it has every possibility to be a title decider. Depending on how the season pans out, the two historic Spanish sides could be battling for the title come May 11th.
