The dates for the the Clásico fixtures for he the new La Liga season will have been confirmed.
LaLiga new draw system
This year, 99% of the fixture list has been drawn using software. The remaining 1% has been selected manually in order to avoid high risk games at certain times and Clásicos being played too early or late in the season; while also to ensure that teams play close to home ahead of the Christmas break.
Madrid fail to win any of four Clásicos last season
Real Madrid will be hoping to put in a better showing than in last year’s Camp Nou Clásico, in which they were thrashed 5-1 by a rampant Barcelona in October – a result which led to the sacking of Julen Lopetegui just four months into his tenure.
Madrid failed to win any of the proceeding three Clásico fixtures last season, with Barcelona taking the return LaLiga fixture (1-0) in the Bernabéu, as well as running out winners over the two legs of the Copa del Rey semi-final (1-1 at the Camp Nou; 0-3 at the Bernabéu).
