La Liga is back in action from the first Friday evening of 2020. We will preview the spotlight matches of the Spanish Primera Division, round 19.
The first round of Spanish Primera
As you may know, Barcelona is the winter champions of La Liga. Blaugrana could win the race of winter championship along with Real Madrid. Los Blancos could not keep up with Barcelona and lost two points in the 18th round of Spanish Primera Division.
Sevilla starts with Athletic Bilbao
On Friday evening (local time), Sevilla will face Athletic Bilbao. The third team of the Primera Division is doing correctly. Keep in mind that Sevilla is only five points away from the leader of La Liga – Barcelona. The new coach from the start of the season was the main factor of Sevilla’s success. The third team is probably aiming for the “top 2” goal by the end of the season. It will be tough as Real Madrid and Barcelona are going strong.
Athletic Bilbao is the team that did everything to get a draw at the Bernabeu. Real Madrid and Barcelona were the two leaders of La Liga before the 18th round of Primera Division. After facing Athletic Bilbao, Real Madrid lost two points as teams could not score the goals. It’s even enjoyable to admit that Bilbao had way more goal-scoring moments at the end of the match at the Bernabeu.
Tough start for Real Madrid
Do you know that Los Blancos has to face Getafe in the first match of 2020? It will be tough away match as Getafe is a very tough team. Getafe is not conceding many goals at home stadium. It will be essential for Los Blancos as the last match was the goalless draw against Athletic Bilbao.
Barcelona’s attacking line is fit for the Catalan derby
Blaugrana will face Espanyol at an away match. It will be the second Catalan derby of the season. Barcelona is two points ahead of Los Blancos and is essential for a team to start the year with a win. Away win against Espanyol will boost their self-confidence. Barcelona needs more confidence from fans as the club will take part in Spanish SuperCopa away from the country.
