Real Madrid vs Barcelona What Channel
The fact that both teams are tied for first place in the league in terms of points and are separated from each other at the top by goal differential just adds to the drama of this epic matchup.
Last time out in the Champions League, both Madrid and Barcelona were held to draws. Madrid earned a point away at Shakhtar Donetsk in Poland thanks to an equaliser from Antonio Rudiger, while Barcelona was held to a 3-3 draw by Inter at Camp Nou.
It is clear that Real Madrid’s backline needs to tighten things up to prevent Lewandowski and company from celebrating at the Bernabeu, which has been a source of concern for coach Carlo Ancelotti after they allowed seven goals in eight league meetings.
Their opponents, on the other hand, have the best defence in the league, allowing just one goal in eight games. Information about how and where to watch the match on TV and the internet in the United States, United Kingdom, and India can be found in GOAL.
