La Liga fixtures of the next season: estimates for top clubs
The schedule of matches of the Spanish football championship has already been presented. According to the La Liga fixtures, the season starts on August 13th. Fans will definitely tolerate another month without football, because in the first round Barcelona will play with Real Sociedad, while Celta will meet Atletico. These will be very interesting matches that will immediately demonstrate the mood of the clubs for the next season.
According to experts, the main contenders for the title are:
Despite wishes of the Catalan fans, Barcelona is unlikely to get out of its crisis quickly. Plus, Lionel Messi hasn’t signed any contract, and the club is under the threat of a ban on signing new players. But the team’s president Joan Laporta is sure that nothing like this will happen, and that they already have an agreement with the Argentine super forward.
Real Madrid has parted ways with Sergio Ramos and Zinedine Zidane; Rafael Varane and Casemiro may leave as well. Gareth Bale returned from loan, but Carlo Ancellotti is not counting too much on a golfer/footballer. There are no newcomers, because Florentino Perez made it clear that the money is out.
As for Atletico, the Mattress Makers are doing better than their rivals. Even the schedule of future La Liga fixtures will provide for a hassle-free scoring experience. Therefore, the team is regarded as the main favourite in the championship.
