Real Madrid begin new season away to Depor

Champions Real Madrid will begin the defence of their crown with an away match against Deportivo La Coruna after the Primera Liga fixtures for next season were announced on Wednesday.

Madrid have famously not managed to win in La Coruna since a 3-0 triumph during the 1991/92 campaign and last season suffered their 11th defeat in 16 meetings at the Riazor after going down 1-0 to a Pepe own goal.

Despite that loss in March, Madrid went on to claim their 31st league title and Bernd Schuster's men will get a chance for revenge after being pitted against Depor on the opening weekend of the new season, which will start on August 30/31 and end on May 30/31.

Among the other opening day fixtures in the Primera Liga - which has been renamed the Liga BBVA due to a sponsorship deal - a much-changed Barcelona side under the guidance of Pep Guardiola travel to Segunda Division champions Numancia, and last season's runners-up Villarreal go to Osasuna.

The other two promoted clubs, Malaga and Sporting Gijon, have matches against sides from the capital, facing Atletico Madrid away and Getafe at home respectively.

Opening day Primera Liga fixtures:
Athletic Bilbao v Almeria,
Espanyol v Valladolid,
Racing Santander v Sevilla,
Malaga v Atletico Madrid,
Valencia v Real Mallorca,
Numancia v Barcelona,
Deportivo La Coruna v Real Madrid,
Real Betis v Recreativo Huelva,
Osasuna v Villarreal,
Sporting Gijon v Getafe.
