Who will win La Liga in 2019-20? Top 10 predictions?
No doubt that Barcelona will win the title this season, as Real and Atlético don’t have a squad better than Barça’s.
New signings like De Jong and Griezmann are sure to make a good impression. However, this season could well determine the outcome of Ernesto Valverde, as it will be crucial to him and Lionel Messi to win both the UCL and the league title.
Winning three league titles in a row is something only their mythical coaches Johan Cruyff (1991-1993; he added a fourth in 1994) and Pep Guardiola (2009-2011) have managed.
Valverde will try to emulate their achievements and also help record the club's ninth title win in 12 seasons.
In their masterclass preseason, Atlético beat Real Madrid, Juventus, and the MLS all-stars. Although Atleti’s defense has been weakened, the addition of João Félix should be exciting as the young Portuguese star is showing his huge potential. They could well become title challengers to Barcelona.
A poor preseason shows that Real Madrid desperately need to sign a few more players. A new midfielder, winger, and defender would be fancied by Zidane to actually challenge Barcelona and the other Madrid in the title race. It is predicted that Real Madrid will probably finish third.
Given the talent that Valencia have, they are probably going to comfortably get fourth place and play Champions League football once again.
