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!
