Just three days after being blown out at Spain’s Copa de Rey by arch-rivals FC Barcelona, Real Madrid again hosts the La Liga leaders for the fourth El Clasico of the 2018-2019 season looking for some sort of redemption. As Marca described, Real Madrid played the better overall game in they second-leg cup match, forgetting just one crucial element — putting the ball into the back of the net. But that is one element of the game that Barcelona, who have scored 57 goals in league play alone, rarely forgets. They did it three times, and will look for even more in the La Liga El Clasico that will live stream from Madrid.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the Real Madrid vs. FC Barcelona El Clasico Spanish La Liga showdown, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is set for 8:45 p.m. Central European Time on Saturday, March 2, at the 81,044-seat Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in Spain’s capital city of Madrid.

In the United Kingdom, the live stream gets underway at 7:45 p.m. GMT, while in the United States, that start time will be 2:45 p.m. ET, 11:45 a.m. PT. Fans in China can log in to the live stream at 3:45 a.m. China Standard Time on Sunday, March 3.

One question for Real Madrid, who may be missing Sergio Ramos to a hamstring issue for the second El Clasico of the week, is whether Welsh international Gareth Bale will start in the game. Bale has started the bench in seven of Real Madrid’s last nine games, per the BBC.

“Everyone knows what Bale can do and they know what he has given to the club,” Real Madrid Manager Santiago Solari said on Friday, without committing to inserting Bale into the lineup.

Real Madrid have moved into third place, but still sit nine points below Barcelona, and must win Saturday’s El Clasico to have even a hope of challenging their rivals for the Spanish title this season.
