It’s been a long and nervy wait (thankfully cushioned by the Copa America Centenario and European Championships), but Spanish football is finally back after 13 weeks away.

Barcelona will be hoping to win their third title on the spin, while Leganes have hopes of staying in La Liga after winning promotion to the top division for the first time in their history.

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will be pushing Barcelona all the way in a bid to put an end to their domestic dominance, while the likes of Sevilla, Athletic Club and Real Sociedad will undoubtedly challenge for the top four.

There are new managers, new players and of course new teams, as the summer break gives teams a chance to rectify last season’s mistakes.

As part of the new season, we will preview each game in La Liga before each gameweek gets underway. 20 teams, 38 gameweeks and 380 games – and we’ll be there every step of the way.
