On Tuesday, La Liga announced their 2012-13 season schedule. FC Barcelona will look to make it four Liga titles in five years, now with Tito Vilanova at the helm. Real Madrid will look to defend their title as Jose Mourinho and his Blancos try to make it 33 titles in the club's history.
Let's not forget about Málaga, who will certainly be a challenge for any opponent. Valencia will look to get out of the third-place spot and challenge Real and Barça. Athletic Bilbao is a tough opponent and is going to make a strong push for the title and a Champions League spot.
For Barcelona, the season begins on Aug. 18, as they open up at the Camp Nou against Real Sociedad.
Here is the rest of La Liga schedule along with Copa Del Rey, UEFA Champions League, and El Clásico dates as well.
