Barcelona and Real Madrid to meet in busy April

Atough fixture list is set for Barcelona and Real Madrid in April, with the two sides facing off at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on the 23rd, just days after the Champions League quarterfinals are scheduled.

Friday saw the release of the Spanish domestic fixtures, with a long wait in store for the first El Clasico of the campaign, Real travelling to the Camp Nou on December 3.

Many see those clashes as the biggest in world football and they usually go far to deciding who wins the league title, although Atletico Madrid have also proven themselves to be strong challengers.

The Madrid derby will be played on November 20 at the Estadio Vicente Calderon, before another big clash on April 9 at the home of Los Blancos.

Arguably the first major derby will be when Sevilla face Real Betis on September 21, with the return on February 26.

It will be quite a while until the two Catalan sides meet, Barcelona not hosting Espanyol until December 18, with the return at the Estadio Cornella El Prat the third to last game of the season, on April 30.
