The upcoming meetings of Spain's top two teams will be the first following Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Juventus, and Goal brings you all the key dates

The 2018-19 La Liga season marks the first after Cristiano Ronaldo's sensational move from Real Madrid to Juventus, and is the beginning of a new era for the Spanish league.

Lionel Messi's legendary Liga rivalry with the Portugal international has now ended - in Spain at least - and the door is now open for a new contender to step through. 

Encounters between Barcelona and Real Madrid usually make for a thrilling spectacle, but when will the first post-Ronaldo Clasico take place?

Goal brings you all the information, such as when, where and how to watch.

When is the next Clasico?

The first Liga Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid will be played on October 28, with kick-off confirmed for 3:15pm BST (10:15am ET).

Interestingly, however, the game will not only not feature Ronaldo, it will be bereft of Messi too, after the Barca captain suffered a fractured arm in his side's 4-2 win over Sevilla.

Upcoming Clasico games:

Date Game Venue
Oct 28 Barcelona vs Real Madrid Camp Nou
Mar 3 Real Madrid vs Barcelona Santiago Bernabeu

Barcelona are due to host Madrid at the Camp Nou on matchday 10, while the return game is to be played at Santiago Bernabeu on March 3.

The last Clasico ended in a 2-2 draw after Luis Suarez and Messi hit for the home side, with Ronaldo and Gareth Bale eventually equalising.

The previous Liga fixture marked a 3-0 away win for Barcelona at the Bernabeu, where Dani Caravajal was sent off in the 63rd minute.
