Barca Confident Of Big Win, Ronaldo-less Real Hoping For Positive Start

Spain's LaLiga gets underway this weekend, with FC Barcelona going up against a team they should have no problem beating, while Real Madrid begin league life without Cristiano Ronaldo.

Girona, a club closely affiliated with Manchester City, host Real Valladolid in the first LaLiga match of the 2018/19 season, and with the impressive brand of football Eusebio Sacristan's side play, the fixture promises to be an entertaining one!

Lionel Messi and Barca will be confident of scoring plenty goals past minnows Deportivo Alaves on Saturday night at the Camp Nou, while Real go into a LaLiga season without Ronaldo for the first time in nine years when they meet Getafe on Sunday.
