Fans are in for an exciting campaign if the early La Liga table is any indication. Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have each earned all 18 points through six matches with Real Madrid just two points back.
The strong starts should make for a terrific Madrid derby.
Atletico didn’t receive much hype when it came to the preseason title talk. Most of the focus surrounded the El Clasico rivals, in large part because los Colchoneros were losing a key piece in Radamel Falcao. But the early results show they aren’t going down without a fight.
Real Madrid made one of the summer’s biggest splashes by adding Gareth Bale from Tottenham. The star has been dealing with a thigh injury but is expected to play in the derby. His presence should provide a big boost to los Blancos’ chances. via | Bleacher Report
