The fifth place gives the right to play in the Europa League, and the sixth line guarantees the club qualification for this prestigious international tournament.Teams that take places from 18 to 20 at the end of the season are automatically reduced in the class and transferred to the Segunda.

In the first round, fans will face at least two fascinating confrontations: “Real Madrid” - “Getafe” and “Valencia” - “Atletico Madrid”. The composition of “Real Madrid” for 2018–2019 was “orphaned” without Cristiano Ronaldo, but the departure of the main star of the galaxy gave young people a chance to fully express themselves. Rising stars will have to immediately demonstrate their potential in a match with the uncompromising “Getafe”. The meeting between Valencia and Atletico Madrid will be the main match of the tour. In the new season, the team of Diego Simeone claims to be the champion, and the “bats” and Valencia successfully held the last draw, jumping to fourth place. Surely in the current championship wards Marcelino Garcia are not going to give up the position, tune in to the fight with the grandees in the first game.

Contenders to win

Despite the fact that the Spanish Championship is considered an unpredictable competition, only three clubs play first place in the table for many seasons. These are the commands such as:

  • Barcelona;
  • "RealMadrid";
  • Atletico Madrid.

The main contender for the title of champion La Liga rightly considered to be “Barcelona”. Several factors speak in favor of this team, the main of which is the presence of Lionel Messi as one of the best footballers on the planet. Moreover, the blue-garnet bosses did not save in the off-season and acquired several world-class players at once. The transitions of Vidal, Malcom, Lengle, Arthur made a lot of noise in the transfer market and gave Ernesto Valverde the freedom to choose. Now at the disposal of the head coach there is a wide choice of outstanding players who probably crave the repetition of last year’s success and winning the title of La Liga champion.


The transfer campaign "Real Madrid", however, as well as its exit form, many were quick to call nondescript. President "galaktikos" could not get a star on a global scale after the departure of Ronaldo.For some reason, goalkeepers Andrei Lunin and Thibault Courtois were bought for substantial money, although the goalkeeper position from Real Madrid is one of the strongest in the league (Kaylor Navas has repeatedly proved his skills in important matches). Purchases of Vinicius and Audriosola will certainly increase competition for a place in the starting lineup, but for the first time in many years, the “creamy” ones have no clearly defined leader who is able to lead partners in difficult moments. In such a situation, much depends on the ability of the head coach to set up a team and reveal the talents of young people. We will know very soon how it will turn out at Ulen Lapetega scandalously banished from the Spanish national team.

“Ateltico Madrid” after the championship of 2013-2014 failed to rise above the third place in the Example. Partly, the main reason for this event was the economical transfer policy of the club and the limited set of players Diego Simeone had to play on two fronts. In the offseason, the management of the "mattress" decided to fork out and bought several famous players at once. These are Tom Lemara, Nikola Kaliniche, Santiago Arias and Honni.At the same time, there were no serious losses (apart from Kevin Gomeiro’s transfer to Valencia), which led many experts to include Atletico and not Real Madrid in the list of Barcelona’s main competitors.

Thus, the Spanish Football Championship 2018-2019 rightfully attracts the attention of millions of sports fans. In the championship, the largest number of goals among the Top 5 European leagues is scored, the best players on the planet come out, there is an uncompromising struggle for the first line and the right to remain in the elite division for the next season. Do not miss the matches of the Spanish championship, which will delight entertainment, the heat of passion, an abundance of beautiful moments.
