La Liga fixtures: Atletico Madrid start with three away games

The Wanda Metropolitano stadium, Atletico Madrid's new home, will stage its first derby against Real Madrid in November.

Atletico Madrid will start the Liga season with three successive away matches as a result of construction work on their new Wanda Metropolitano stadium.

Having been drawn to play promoted Girona at home on the opening weekend, Atletico will instead travel to Estadi Montilivi before trips to Las Palmas and Valencia.

On the fourth matchday of the new season, Atletico will finally cut the ribbons at the Metropolitano with a home game against Malaga, to be staged over the weekend of September 16 and 17.

As a result of the fixture switch with Girona, Atletico Madrid will play four of their five fixtures in January 2018 at their new stadium.

The first Madrid derby of the campaign has been set for the weekend of November 18 and 19 at the Metropolitano, with Diego Simeone's men heading to the Santiago Bernabeu on the weekend of April 7 and 8.

Atletico will travel to face Getafe in the penultimate round of the campaign, followed by a home game against Eibar to close the season.

Their matches against Barcelona are at home in October and away in March.
