The Clasico will be the first in LaLiga for Xavi Hernandez as manager since taking over at Barca in November following the dismissal of Ronald Koeman.
It will also be a first for new arrivals Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ferran Torres, who joined Barca during the January transfer window.
League leaders Madrid beat Barca 2-1 on Oct. 24 at the Camp Nou in the reverse fixture, with striker Sergio Aguero scoring his only goal for Barca after joining the club as a free agent in the summer.
It proved to be the last of his career with Aguero, 33, forced to retire in December because of a heart problem.
The two sides met most recently in the Spanish Supercopa semifinal in Saudi Arabia, where Madrid ran out 3-2 winners after extra time.
Madrid are 15 points clear of fourth-placed Barca, who have a game in hand.
