The two fierce rivals will play out their first Clasico at Camp Nou just two months into the league season, with the return fixture scheduled for early March.

The fixtures for the 2012-13 La Liga season have been revealed, revealing the dates for the two derby clashes between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
