Still regarded as one of the most exciting and intriguing fixtures of the European calendar, the two Spanish giants face off at Camp Nou with just one point separating them.
Madrid lead the way in LaLiga after 10 games played, with English sensation Jude Bellingham the standout player after his £100million-plus move from Borussia Dortmund over the summer.
Bellingham's involvement - his first Clasico - brings extra English interest to the game, but no one will be able to view the game.
As the game kicks off at 3.15pm today, (Saturday, October 28), the traditional UK TV 3pm blackout applies so neither rightsholders ITV4 nor Premier Sports are able to broadcast the game in the UK.
Those in Ireland will be able to watch the game on Premier Sports 2 but ITV4 is serving up European Championship Darts action followed by an episode of The Grand Fishing Adventure.
You can nonetheless follow the action LIVE with Standard Sport’s dedicated match blog.
