The 2022/23 La Liga season is underway and there’s a year of excitement ahead.
Real Madrid are the defending champions, winning just their fourth league title in the past 14 years having had to watch on as Barcelona took control of Spain, with the odd Atletico Madrid win.
They are now looking to retain the La Liga title for the first time since 2007/08, but have seen their rivals strengthen over the summer. So what will happen in the La Liga this season? Only time will tell!
Who will win the La Liga title?
Real Madrid may have had to watch on as their rivals win titles in recent years, but 2021/22’s win was Los Blancos‘ 35th league title, increasing their lead as the most successful side in Spanish football history. It was an extremely dominant win too, finishing 13 points clear of second-placed Barcelona, the second-largest gap between first and second in Europe’s top five leagues after Ligue 1.
The win also saw Carlo Ancelotti become the first ever manager to win the league title in each of Europe’s top five leagues, after successes in Italy (AC Milan), England (Chelsea), France (PSG) and Germany (Bayern Munich). And who could forget about Karim Benzema winning his first ever Pichichi in a campaign that will go some way in helping him win the Ballon d’Or.
Despite having a rough start to last season, Barcelona ended up being Real Madrid’s closest rivals and Xavi’s side are expected to put up a better challenge this time around. The Blaugrana are starting to look like a team under Xavi and, despite their financial difficulties they have strengthened in the transfer window.

Who has had the better transfer window?
Having a pretty solid squad to start with, Real Madrid have only brought in two players with a view to immediately joining their first team. But they are both stars. The first is Antonio Rudiger, signed from Chelsea on a free transfer, and the German defender is at the peak of his powers, leaving the Premier League as one of its best centre-backs. An expert with the ball at his feet, Rudiger attempted 477 final third passes in the Premier League last season, more than any other centre-back in the division.
He is joined at the Santiago Bernabeu by one of the best young midfielders in Europe, Aurelien Tchouameni. The 22-year-old was wanted by a number of Europe’s biggest clubs this summer and revealed that Kylian Mbappe tried to lure him to PSG, but the now-former Monaco man couldn’t say no to Madrid.
Barcelona had a lot more work to do than Real Madrid and they haven’t been messing around. Despite the supposed financial restraints the club are working with, Barcelona have brought in four big names this summer for quite a bit of money. The biggest name has to be Robert Lewandowski, signing the best striker in the world for £38.3m after he expressed his desire to leave Bayern Munich.
But Lewandowski isn’t even Barcelona’s most-expensive arrival. That honour belongs to Raphinha, who was signed from Leeds for £49m, with Barcelona beating Arsenal and Chelsea in the race for his signature. There have also been reinforcements further back for Barca, with Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen both arriving on free transfers.
Who will finish in the La Liga top four?
Away from the Big Two, Atletico Madrid will once again be looking to gatecrash the party, but it might be better for them to focus on securing a spot in the top four. At the time of writing, Opta’s AI-powered season predictions give Atletico just a 9.92% chance of winning the league, compared to Real Madrid’s 52.38% and Barcelona’s 27.30%.
Diego Simeone’s side did finish in the top four last season but it wasn’t as comfortable as they would have liked, especially having gone into the campaign as defending champions. Atletico were only one point clear of fourth-placed Sevilla and six ahead of Real Betis in fifth. Both Seville-based clubs will be looking to challenge for the top four again in 2022/23, while the likes of Real Socieddad, Villarreal, Valencia and Athletic Bilbao could also compete – the latter now led by Ernesto Valverde.
Who will be relegated from La Liga?
At the end of the 2021/22 campaign, we said goodbye to Granada, Levante and Alaves, with Almeria, Real Valladolid and Girona replacing them in La Liga.
Unfortunately, all three are among the favourites to be relegated from the 2022/23 La Liga but Real Mallorca have given a 49.48% chance of going down by Opta. Mallorca were one of three teams to finish just one point clear of the relegation zone last season, joined by Getafe and Cadiz. All three will be looking to improve on their 2021/22 campaigns, while perhaps hoping the three promoted sides struggle.
