Official: El Clasico date confirmed

The Spanish League has confirmed that the first Clasico of the season will be on Saturday, December 3.

The Matchday 14 clash between Barcelona and Real Madrid takes place at the Camp Nou and kicks off at 4.15pm local time.

La Liga President Javier Tebas had already hinted in mid-October on Cadena SER’s ‘El Larguero’ programme that the match would most likely begin at that time.

The unusually early start for Spain’s most anticipated fixture is understood to be an attempt to maximise television viewing figures in the Far East, particularly in China.
