It's official. The second Clásico of the season between Barcelona and Real Madrid will be held on Saturday April 2 at 20:30 in the Camp Nou. LaLiga has just confirmed the schedule for Matchday 31. The match takes place following the break for international games - when Spain play two friendlies against Italy and Romania - and three days before after the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

Madrid bid farewell to the League after their defeat against Atlético and could look to rest some of the players in what is usually the biggest league game of the season to arrive fresh for the European challenge. That is assuming that they navigate past a resurgent Roma in the second leg still to be played.
