Atletico Madrid will have an early showdown with Real Madrid as it takes on its rival in the second month of the 2019-20 La Liga campaign.
And Los Rojiblancos have the opportunity to get some points on the board early doors as only one of their opening six opponents – including promoted Mallorca – finished in the top nine of the division last season.
Opening-day opponent Getafe will provide a tough early test, though, and Atletico also takes on a new-look Madrid before the end of September.
The reverse meeting with its near neighbour at the Santiago Bernabeu is scheduled for February 2, while the high-profile encounters with Barcelona will take place on December 1 and April 26.
All dates in the full fixture schedule below are subject to change.

How To Get To The Wanda Metropolitano
Wanda Metropolitano is located in the north-east of Madrid towards Barajas airport at roughly 10 kilometres from central Madrid.
The stadium is easily reached by metro. Station Estadio Metropolitano lies right next to the stadium. Estadio Metropolitano is a stop on the orange line 7, which runs north of central Madrid so from central Madrid a change is required at, for example, Pueblo Nuevo (line 5), Avenida de America (line 4, 6, and 9) or Gregorio Maranon (line 10).
Station Las Musas, also on line 7, is also at short walking distance from the stadium. Alternatively, the stadium can about just be walked to – about 25 minutes – from station Torre Arias, which lies on line 5.
Address: Wanda Metropolitano, 28022 Madrid
Eat, drink, and sleep near Wanda Metropolitano
Whereas the old Vicente Calderon was located in a charming neighbourhood, the area around Wanda Metrpolitano is less appealing. Enclosed on one side by a motorway, and the other by a rather anonymous residential neighbourhood consisting of rows of large apartment blocks, it is no wonder that Atletico fans were reluctant to move here.
Of course, it being Spain, there’s the odd local place to eat or drink, but overall there is little reason to head to the stadium long in advance of the game.
There are no hotels directly near Wanda Metropolitano, though there are a few options a little further out in the San Blas area that are about just at walking distance (about 30 minutes). These hotels include Ilunion Alcala Norte, Ibis Madrid Valentin Beato, Ibis Budget Valentin Beato, and the Occidental Madrid Este, which all get good reviews.
