New Real Madrid manager Rafael Benitez will oversee his first El Clasico La Liga match in charge of Los Blancos on Sunday November 8th, at the Bernabeu. The reverse league fixture falls in the spring, with Barcelona hosting Real in a potentially crucial early April encounter, with just seven games left before the end of the season. Luis Enrique’s treble-winning Barcelona outfit begin their domestic title defence away at Basque side Athletic Bilbao on August 23rd – their third game in a week against Ernesto Valverde’s men, given the two teams’ two-legged Super Cup tussle.

SPORT DATES TO SAVOUR

Benitez will bring his new-look side to Sporting Gijon’s El Molinon stadium on the opening day, while Malaga entertain Sevilla in an Andalucian derby. On the last day of the 2015-16 campaign, May 15th, 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.
