The much-anticipated match between the best two teams in La Liga table is scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 23, at 8:45pm CEST. For those unfamiliar with the CEST time zone, this means that kickoff will be at 18:45GMT / 19:45 BST (UK time) / 14:45 EDT (New York time).
El Clasico will be played in Real Madrid’s home stadium, the Santiago Bernabéu. The arena’s capacity is presently reported to exceed 80,000 seats.
The match will once again have intensive coverage around the world, as interested viewers will have the opportunity to watch Real Madrid and Barcelona face each other on television, on mobile apps and online. Special programming and TV shows are also set to be aired before and after the game by rights holders.
Legal broadcasts will be carried by beIN Sports in English and in Spanish in the United States and Canada.

We will continue to update our match page with official streams for Asia, Europe and South America as well.
The first Clasico of the 2016/17 season, which ended in a 1-1 draw back in December last year, was shockingly unavailable on UK television. The reason behind this unexpected situation happened to be the kickoff time and date—3:15pm GMT on a Saturday afternoon—a slot that went against Britain’s 3pm TV blackout for soccer matches.
The upcoming Clasico on April 23, 2017, will be a different story though, as it falls on a Sunday. In simple terms, no blackout for fans wanting to watch the match at home. With this being certain, Sky Sports 1/HD is expected to broadcast the Clasico live in the UK on TV, as well as on its app Sky Go.
