Top-flight Spanish football returns this weekend with the majority of La Liga’s clubs back in action.
Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla are all absent from the opening weekend’s fixture list because of their participation in the latter stages of the European competitions last month.
Sevilla tasted yet more Europa League glory while La Liga’s other big boys were left bitterly disappointed after crashing out of the Champions League – but the focus will now be back on domestic duties.
Despite the missing giants, there are still seven fixtures to look forward to across Saturday and Sunday as the 2020/21 officially gets underway.

Game to watch: Valencia vs Levante
Just four points separated Valencia in ninth place and Levante in 12 last season. In normal circumstances, Valencia would hope to extend that gap this term and push for European qualification, but a number of unpopular player sales – including midfield duo Dani Parejo and Francis Coquelin joining rivals Villarreal and striker Rodrigo leaving for Leeds – have dampened expectations at the Mestalla. Questions over the board’s intentions have emerged, and outsiders Levante will be looking to feed off the tension – in an albeit empty stadium – and pull off a useful early victory.
