Barça v Madrid for the anniversary

Jordi Feu

The 2009/10 league fixture list has thrown up a clásico between Barça and Real Madrid to coincide with the club’s 110th anniversary on November 29, 2009.

The big game is the twelfth of the campaign, and either on the 28th or 29th of the month, depending on television, there will be a dual motive for celebrations at the Camp Nou because the weekend also marks the club’s 110th anniversary.

Another classic game a week earlier

Barça will play that game a week after another of the tournament’s historic encounters – the trip to play the other of the three teams that have never been relegated out of the top flight, Athletic Bilbao, in what is always a big occasion at San Mamés.

The game will be brought forward to give the squad time to travel to Abu Dhabi and take part in the Clubs World Cup.

Barça v Madrid for the anniversary
Ten years on from the Centenary
The Barça v Madrid game comes eleven years after the year-long anniversary celebrations for under way, when Barça also had a game against a Madrid team, but in that case Atlético. The build-up to the game was celebrated in grand style at the stadium, including a memorable performance from local singer Joan Manel Serrat. But the day ended on a sour note, for Barça were beaten 1-0, with the sole goal of the game coming from the penalty spot, converted by Jugovic.
