La Liga Fixtures 2019-2020

The 2019-20 La Liga fixtures have been released and champions Barcelona will kick off their 2019-20 La Liga campaign against Athletic Bilbao at the San Mames Stadium on August 18.

Real Madrid will also be heading out on the road in the first round of fixtures, as they travel to Celta Vigo.

Elsewhere, Atletico take on Getafe, Espanyol host Sevilla, Valencia tackle Real Sociedad and Real Betis take on Real Valladolid.

The promoted teams play Leganés (Osasuna), Eibar (Mallorca) and Villarreal (Granada) in their first games back in the top flight.

Elsewhere, Mallorca entertain Eibar and Levante go to Alaves.

Antoine Griezmann

Antoine Griezmann says he will not join Atletico Madrid for pre-season training, despite the club demanding he does so this week.

The stand off between the French international and the club continues the cold war between them, as he looks to push through a move to FC Barcelona before the start of the 2019-20 La Liga season, according to Marca.

Griezmann stated at the end of last season that he wished to leave Atletico, and move to the Camp Nou, where he rejected a move to, less than 12 months before.

Malcolm Barcelona

Paris Saint-Germain are keen to land Malcom in a player-plus-cash deal if Barcelona make a formal offer for Neymar, according to Le Parisien.

The Brazilian superstar is reportedly keen on returning to the Nou Camp two years after leaving the club for Paris in a £200million deal.

Malcom, who joined the Catalan giants from Bordeaux last summer, has failed to establish himself as a regular under Ernesto Valverde and could now be heading to the exit.

In his sole season in Spain, Malcom made 24 appearances, scored four goals and picked up a La Liga’s winner’s medal.

Atletico Madrid 2019-2020 Fixtures

Atletico Madrid begins its 2019-20 La Liga campaign with a home match against Getafe and conclude the season by hosting Real Sociedad.

Atletico Madrid will have an early showdown with Real Madrid as it takes on its rival in the second month of the 2019-20 La Liga campaign.

Diego Simeone’s side has finished behind Barcelona in successive seasons in Spain but will be aiming to go one better this time around.

And Los Rojiblancos have the opportunity to get some points on the board early doors as only one of their opening six opponents – including promoted Mallorca – finished in the top nine of the division last season.

El Clasico Dates for 2019-2020 Confirmed

El Clasico #eclasico

The dates for the the Clásico fixtures for he the new La Liga season will have been confirmed.

The first clash between Real Madrid and Barcelona will take place at Camp Nou on Sunday, 27 October; while the return fixture at the Santiago Bernabeu is scheduled for Sunday, 1 March, 2020.

LaLiga new draw system

This year, 99% of the fixture list has been drawn using software. The remaining 1% has been selected manually in order to avoid high risk games at certain times and Clásicos being played too early or late in the season; while also to ensure that teams play close to home ahead of the Christmas break.

Chelsea have agreed terms with Atletico Madrid regarding the permanent sale of Alvaro Morata to the Liga giants.

The Spain international finished the 2018-19 campaign on loan at Wanda Metropolitano and he made no secret of his desire to stay on in the Spanish capital as that initial agreement came to a close.

Atletico also opened the door for the 26-year-old to remain on their books, although transfer talks have dragged on.

Sources close to discussions revealed in June that Morata had been assured that a deal to keep him in Madrid would be done.

Neymar Barcelona

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly offered Neymar to Real Madrid, but the Spanish giants are no longer in a position to be able to make an offer.

The Brazilian wide-player has long been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu at some point in the future, rumours that have only intensified since he left Barcelona for PSG two years ago.

He is now strongly linked with a return to the Nou Camp, but in a bid to avoid having to do business with the disliked Catalans, PSG have offered their star asset to Real Madrid on two occasions, according to Marca.

De Jong Barcelona

Frenkie de Jong was finally unveiled as a Barcelona player on Friday, and his first act was to urge one of his former team-mates to come join him at the Nou Camp.

The Dutch midfielder finally completed his £65million from Ajax after passing his medical and was unveiled to supporters inside the club’s home having originally agreed to the move in January.

He took to the pitch with his entourage, including wife Mikky Kiemeney, and was greeted by thousands of fans as he appeared in full kit and entertained them by giving them a glimpse of what is to come.

Paul Pogba

Real Madrid are continuing to push hard to sign Paul Pogba this summer and have reportedly informed Manchester United they are willing to offer €90 million and Gareth Bale or Isco in a player-plus-cash deal for the midfielder.

Zinedine Zidane is desperate to bring the Frenchman to the Bernabeu and has made him his No 1 target with Pogba equally keen to move to the Spanish capital.

United remain reluctant to sell their prized asset and told Madrid earlier this summer it would take a bid in excess of £150m to bring them to the negotiating table.

In a late surprise for Barcelona fans in the US, the La Liga champions have announced that they will play two games in the US against Napoli this summer as part of the first LaLiga Serie A Cup.

Barça are taking advantage of the Spanish Super Cup changes, which will now take place in Saudi Arabia in January, to extend their preseason tour.

The first match will take place in Miami on August 7th before the two clubs head to Ann Arbor Stadium at the University of Michigan on August 10th.
