FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are set to clash yet again in the ‘Spanish Classic’, as the two rival teams face each other on Sunday, March 19, in the LaLiga Santander 2023. The match will be played at the Spotify Camp Nou at 3:00 pm (Peruvian time). While Real Madrid are motivated after qualifying for the Champions League quarterfinals, Barcelona is also going through a good moment in the local tournament, where they are currently leading. The match will be a test for both the teams, with Real Madrid needing a victory to keep up their fight for LaLiga Santander and Barcelona looking to further cement their lead.

The challenge for Real Madrid will be to knock down the wall built by Marc-André ter Stegen, the German goalkeeper for Barcelona, who has an unprecedented record of 19 clean sheets in 25 games with a single goal conceded at the Camp Nou. Real Madrid’s Vinícius Junior and Karim Benzema, the top scorers for the team, will be hoping to overcome this challenge. Barcelona, on the other hand, has the best defense and goalkeeper in the championship, conceding just 0.16 goals per day.

The schedules and channels for the match have been announced, with the match being broadcasted on ESPN, Star Plus, and SKY Sports in Mexico, ESPN and Star Plus in Peru, and ESPN in Colombia, Bolivia, Venezuela, and the United States. The match will be broadcasted on various channels in different parts of the world.

Ter Stegen presents the best record of a goalkeeper who finished 76% of his games unbeaten, conceding just one goal in the last six LaLiga games. With hardly any fissures to deal a blow to the fight for first place since January, Ter Stegen appears as the main obstacle for Real Madrid. In 19 classics played by Ter Stegen, he managed to leave a clean sheet in six, the second Barcelona goalkeeper who achieved the most in the history of the match, equaling the record by Andoni Zubizarreta.

The match is crucial for both teams, with Real Madrid looking to score goals at the stadium where the visiting team has least been seen this season. Ancelotti’s Real Madrid has been left without scoring in four games this season, three in LaLiga and two away, in their defeat in Mallorca and the draw at the home of Real Betis, their last outing.
