The latest edition of the Spanish La Liga enters its second week with a clash between RCD Espanyol and Rayo Vallecano on August 19.
Real Madrid will continue on its quest of retaining the La Liga title as it visits Celta Vigo after it was forced to grind out a 2-1 win against newly promoted Almeria last week. The defending champions have won 13 of its last 15 games away from its opponent this week in La Liga.
Real Madrid’s eternal rival, FC Barcelona was frustrated in its opening fixture with it being held to a moral sapping 0-0 draw against Rayo Vallecano. It will now head off to face Real Sociedad, with whom the Blaugrana hasn’t lost to in the last 12 fixtures in the league.
The 2020/21 La Liga Champion, Atletico Madrid will host Villareal. The Diego Simeone-managed side made a commanding start to the league with a 3-0 win against Getafe. Joao Felix shone with three assists, with two of them being converted by Alvaro Morata.
