Clasico dates set! 

Barcelona and Real Madrid will face one another in the

first Clasico of 2016-17 at the Nou Camp in early

December, with the return LaLiga fixture to be played at

the Bernabeu in late April.

The fixtures for the new campaign were announced on

Friday, with Spain’s big two likely to fight it out again

for the title along with Atletico Madrid.

Reigning champions Barca face Real Betis at home on the

opening weekend of the season on August 20-21.

Meanwhile, last season’s runners-up Real Madrid are

away to Real Sociedad in the first round of matches.

The 2015-16 top two are subsequently scheduled to go

head-to-head at the Nou Camp on December 3 or 4, with

the reverse fixture then taking place on April 23 in the

33rd matchday out of 38.

The final round of games, pencilled in for May 21, will

see Barcelona host Eibar and Real Madrid play at

Malaga.

Luis Enrique’s Barca are looking to claim a third straight

LaLiga title, while reigning European champions Real are

aiming to claim the trophy for the first time since

2011-12.
