The Premier League is not only the top European football league that will resume this weekend. Alongside the most-watched league in the world, the Spanish La Liga will also start off a new season this weekend.
For the most part of the break, it was mostly about Lionel Messi. The league’s prized asset dragged the league into the news, no thanks to his desire to leave and also his choice to reverse his decision.
With that out of the way, fans can now anticipate a football season with Messi, the El Clasico that’s to come, as well as other games that the league has on offer.
For the newly-promoted sides, it’s the chance to stake their claim at the table with the big boys. Huesca, Cadiz, and Elche will have to hit the ground running when they start life at the top of Spanish club football.

Elche, billed to face Barcelona, in their first game, will have a delayed start to the season. This is because Barcelona have an extended break thanks to their Champions League run-in. The same also goes for Real Madrid, with their Opening Day clash against Getafe postponed.
For Huesca, their first game will be against Villarreal. The last meeting between both sides, over a year ago, saw both sides score, and the game ended in a stalemate. If you call this game of red cards, you won’t be far from the truth.
In the last five meetings between both La Liga sides, there has been an average of one red card shown per game.

Another red-card fixture is the one between Levante and Valencia.
Three of the last four meeting between these two sides has seen a player receive a red card. Asides red cards, this game has a knack of producing a lot of goals. Four of the last six meetings between both sides has at least three goals scored. All six meetings saw both sides score.
The opening La Liga game will be between Granada and Athletic Bilbao. 16 times, both sides have clashed in recent history. Granada have won six, Bilbao seven, and three ending in a draw. What of the last game of the Opening Day?
That will be between Deportivo Alaves and Real Betis.
