Indian football fans can watch Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and other Spanish clubs back in action later this month after La Liga released the full 2020-21 schedule on Monday.

The first matchweek of the Spanish league kicks off on September 12, early morning, with live streaming of the matches available in India.

However, neither Real Madrid nor Barcelona, will feature in the opening matchweek as they have been given more time to recover from their UEFA Champions League participation in August. 

Apart from them, UCL quarter-finalists Atletico Madrid and UEFA Europa League winners Sevilla are also scheduled for a delayed start.

Real Madrid will start their 2020-21 La Liga campaign with the match against Real Sociedad on September 20.

Real Madrid start title defence at home

Defending La Liga champions Real Madrid will start their 2020-21 campaign against Real Sociedad on September 20, where former Manchester City star David Silva is likely to commence his second La Liga stint with the Txuri-urdinak.

And with reports of Lionel Messi leaving Barca, coach Ronald Koeman faces numerous challenges already in his new role. Barcelona will kick off their La Liga 2020/21 season against Villareal at Camp Nou on September 27.

Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid will also start their season in the third matchweek (September 27) against Granada at home.
