The first ‘Clasico’ of the season between Barcelona and Real Madrid will take place on a Monday night, the Spanish league has confirmed.

The two heavyweights will meet at the Nou Camp on November 29 to avoid a clash with the Catalan elections which take place in Barcelona a day earlier.

A statement on Real’s official website confirmed the news. It read: “The football league has announced the matchday 13 clash between Barcelona and Real Madrid will be played on November 29 at 2100 local time.

“This is due to the 13th round coinciding with the elections for the parliament of Catalonia and the security problems that would create.”

Barca beat Real home and away in their Clasico encounters last season, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring the winner in a 1-0 victory at the Nou Camp, before goals from Lionel Messi and Pedro gave Pep Guardiola‘s side a crucial 2-0 win at the Bernabeu to catapult them towards the Primera Division title.

The big two in Spain are again dominating La Liga this season; Jose Mourinho‘s Madrid are a point clear of Barca at the summit after winning eight of their opening 10 matches.
