The 2020-21 La Liga season ushered in a new era for Barcelona, following the drops associated with the news that talisman Lionel Messi wanted to leave.
He stuck, but it’s fair to say that the Catalan side have struggled in recent seasons, with a failure to clinch a single title in the 2019-20 season and continued to hesitate in the Champions League.
Real Madrid are defending their La Liga title under Zinedine Zidane and Spain’s flagship fixture inevitably promises to be one of football’s most anticipated clashes.
