FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid: Head-to-head record, top goalscorers and all you need to know about El Clasico

Nonetheless, Clasicos are always special to the fans of these two clubs across the globe. With the win, Los Merengues held on to their second position on the league table, one point behind leaders Real Sociedad with a game in hand. Barcelona, on the other hand, dropped to the ninnth position.

The two clubs have now met each other in 247 competitive matches out of which Real Madrid won 99 and Barcelona won 96. 52 ties ended in a draw. Former FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi is the all-time highest goalscorer in El Clasico’s history and is also the joint-most capped player along with current PSG teammate and former Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos.
