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.''
