This morning at the headquarters of the Spanish Football Federation the highly anticipated draw was held to publicize the LaLiga Santander 2020/2021 calendar. The first day will be held on the weekend of September 12 and 13 in which seven games will be played. Real Madrid, current LaLiga champions, will play their first game a week later after having played in European competition. The same happens with Barça, Atlético de Madrid and Sevilla, who will start the season on the weekend of September 26. Likewise, the first two matches of Elche are postponed, which recently rose after winning the final against Girona in the playoffs.
The most anticipated matches
Without a doubt one of the key dates of the season is October 25. On matchday seven, Barça will host reigning LaLiga champion Real Madrid at the Camp Nou. The first classic that the Catalan club will play without its star Leo Messi. The first game in which Koeman will face his greatest rival from the bench and as coach of FC Barcelona. We will have to wait until the weekend of April 11, on matchday 30, to live and enjoy the second classic of the season, this time at the Santiago Bernabéu.
Another of the most anticipated duels for football fans is that between Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid. A true duel of the titans between Zinédine Zidane and Diego Simeone. The two teams from the capital will meet, for the first time this season, on the weekend of December 13. It will be at the Santiago Bernabéu. And the return will be played at the Wanda Metropolitano on the weekend of March 7.
Already in 2021, the capital of Seville will host the first major duel between Real Betis and Sevilla FC. On the weekend of January 3, the Benito Villamarín Stadium will vibrate with an Andalusian duel. Sevilla, current champions of the Europa League, will play the second leg against Betis on the weekend of March 14 at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán Stadium.
