The first Clasico takes place at the Santiago Bernabeu on October 16th and the second one takes place at Camp Nou on March 19th.
Real Madrid by virtue of winning the League are the clear favorite to retain their title, partly due to them retaining the core of their squad and also signing quality players in the transfer market.
With the addition of Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni, the Los Blancos have added some steel to a squad that is already strong.
Their closest rivals, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid aren’t having a spectacular transfer window as they seem to carry over their form from the just concluded season to the transfer window.
The Blaugrana will be counting on the wave that engulfed the team since Xavi Hernandez took charge of the team and if they can get their finances in order, they might mount a serious challenge for the title.
For Diego Simeone and his lads, they need to sort out their defensive lapses if they’re to play the role of opposition to the big two (Real Madrid and Barcelona), else, they might get caught out by the likes of Sevilla, Real Sociedad and Real Betis.
Former Barcelona coach, Ernesto Valverde has confirmed reports that he’s set to take on the job of coaching Spanish La Liga side, Athletic Bilbao, but on the condition that a certain candidate wins the president election of the club.
On Saturday the 24th of June, members of Athletic Club will take to the polls in order to a elect a President from Jon Uriarte, Inaki Arechabaleta or Ricardo Barkala. Marcelo Bielsa, had earlier confirmed that he would be the coach of the club if Arechabaleta wins and On Thursday it was confirmed that should either Barkala or Uriarte win, Valverde would be making a return to the club.

“After the candidates were confirmed, two of them called me. I made my position clear to both, my position was inclusive and not exclusive, because it matters to me what happens to Athletic.”
“My idea was not to participate in the electoral process from the start. I am a member of Athletic.” “I don’t see everything from a political prism, but more in terms of what is best for the club. As long as there are points of unity, it seems like a good thing within the whole panorama of an election campaign.”
