Barcelona claimed the Primera Division title last season with a huge degree of comfort but will not expect to have things so easy in the 2018-19 campaign.
It begins with a home match against Alaves, a side that was comfortably entrenched in mid-table last time around.
Barca, meanwhile, have started the new season on a positive note, coming from behind to beat Sevilla 2-1 in last weekend’s Spanish Super Cup.
The tone has been set for the months ahead, they hope.
