The fixtures for Round One of the 2020/21 La Liga season have been announced, with champions Real Madrid taking on Getafe at Santiago Bernabeu.

Rivals Barcelona will face newly-promoted Elche, who won the Segunda Division play-off encounter, at Camp Nou, with it still unclear whether Lionel Messi will take part in the contest following his transfer request.

The tie of the round is arguably last season's third-place side, Atletico, taking on Europa League winners Sevilla at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Cadiz will face Osasuna, while Huesca will travel to face highly-fancied Villarreal, who are now coached by Unai Emery.

It has also been agreed that despite the tight calendar there will be no games held over Christmas, though the dates of 22 December and 30 December have been approved for fixtures.
