Real Madrid will play Barcelona in a November El Clasico

New Real Madrid manager Rafael Benitez will oversee his first El Clasico La Liga match in charge of Los Blancos on November 8, at the Bernabeu.

The reverse league fixture falls in the spring of 2016, with Barcelona hosting Real in a potentially crucial April 3 tie, with merely seven games before the end of the season.

Luis Enrique’s treble-winning Blaugrana begin their domestic title defence away at Basque side Athletic Bilbao on August 23 – their third game in a week against Ernesto Valverde’s men, given the two teams’ two-legged Super Cup tussle.

Benitez will bring his new-look side to Sporting Gijon’s El Molinon stadium on the opening day, while Malaga invite Sevilla to La Rosaleda for an Andalucian derby.

On the last day of the 2015-16 campaign, May 15, Real travel to Galicia to play Deportivo La Coruna, while Barcelona also finish the season away from home at Granada, who finished 17th in La Liga last season.

Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid begin the season at home to Las Palmas and end it at home to Celta Vigo.

Atletico, who finished last season 16 points off Barcelona, in third, take on Real at the Vicente Calderon Stadium on October 4 and the Bernabeu on February 28.
