The 2021/22 La Liga season kicks off on August 13 with Valencia hosting Getafe in a Friday night opener at the Mestalla.
Atletico Madrid go into a league campaign as defending champions for the first time since 2014/15, having fought back from a goal down to beat Real Valladolid 2-1 on the final day of the 2020/21 season to clinch the league crown.
Among the favourites to topple Atleti are city rivals Real Madrid, who will be led this season by Carlo Ancelotti after the Italian made a shock return to the Bernabeu over the summer. The 62-year-old won the Champions League and the Copa del Rey during his first stint at Real and will be tasked with returning Los Blancos to the top — both domestically and in Europe.
Elsewhere, Lionel Messi is expected to re-sign for Barcelona amid reports he has committed to a contract until 2026 following a protracted saga. Barca have managed just one Copa del Rey title since the 2018/19 season and Ronald Koeman will be determined to land more silverware after being handed a second chance in the Camp Nou dugout for 2021/22.
Newly-promoted Espanyol, Mallorca and Rayo Vallecano will be aiming to make their mark after winning promotion from Segunda Division last term, replacing Eibar, Real Valladolid and Huesca.
