La Liga fixtures: Madrid to juggle Clasico plans with Club World Cup commitments
Real Madrid will travel to Camp Nou for a Clasico clash with Barcelona that is likely to be decisive in next season's La Liga title race.
The great rivals face off on Matchday 36 on the weekend of May 5/6, with only two games of the season to be played thereafter.
La Liga announced on Friday that the first Clasico of the season is due to be held at the Santiago Bernabeu on December 20.
However, that match may need to be moved as a result of Madrid's involvement in the Club World Cup, the final of which is due to take place on December 16 in Abu Dhabi.
Atletico Madrid welcome their city rivals to their new Wanda Metropolitano home on the weekend of November 18/19, with the return derby on April 7/8.
Zinedine Zidane's champions get their title defence up and running with an away match at Deportivo La Coruna, where Madrid won 6-2 last season.
They will conclude the campaign with a tricky trip to Villarreal, with the season set to end on the weekend of May 19/20.
