The first Clásico without Lionel Messi or Sergio Ramos in Barcelona or Real Madrid in 15 years will take place on Sunday, but the fact that they now share a dressing room in Paris opens the door to a new generation.
With fans still licking their wounds from these games, Sergio Busquets has played the most classic games for both teams, with 40, ahead of Gerard Piqué with 37 and Karim Benzema with 36.

Benzema remains the highest scorer in Clásico, with a total of ten goals. When the two teams are compared, it becomes clear that Barcelona is the third youngest team in LaLiga Santander, with an average age of 26 years and 174 days. Real Madrid, for example, is 28 years and 20 days old, making it the fifth-oldest team in LaLiga, according to OPTA records.

Barcelona also has the most players born since 2000, with eight, compared to six for Real Madrid. Real Madrid holds the record for being the most youthful squad in the world. Real Madrid’s side with Manuel Pellegrini in 2010 was the youngest team on that day since 2005/06, with an average age of 25 years and 72 days.

The five youngest players that have played this century, lead by Ansu Fati, Bojan Krkic, and soon to be Gavi, are all from Barcelona. Ansu Fati scored the first goal in an El Clasico at the age of 17 years and 359 days, making him the youngest player to do so. Vinicius Junior is next at 19 years and 233 days, while Lionel Messi scored three goals in 2007.
