The league double, the pending challenge for Real Madrid


I think it's one of the most interesting leagues in recent years because of the attraction of having Benzema and Lewandowski, and because of the mystery of the World Cup in the middle of the season

Few things retain that aroma of summer like the return of the League.

It is a tender feeling, perhaps bordering on the naive, that lights up your interior since childhood.

A new season is a new opportunity to enjoy, to get excited about the team you love so much.

There are those who said that football is the most important among the least important things.

And in such a turbulent time, there comes that old companion.

The Spanish League presents a good attraction this year.

Two of the best strikers in the world, Karim Benzema and Robert Lewandowski, lead the two great giants, Madrid and Barça.

It's been a while since the different leagues are distributed to the greatest figures, Spain no longer brings together the great legends, but the goal is the pepper of football.

We are in a World Cup year, everyone will want to offer a good level.

And this course we may have fun again.

It is a championship with ingredients to be open.

After winning the last title with solvency, Real Madrid will face a good group of rivals who will question their dominance.

Barcelona will compete with Xavi at the helm from the start, Atlético has had no complexes for years against the greatest and Sevilla has matured a group that is always competitive.

If we look at Europe, it is difficult to find a tournament with so many blocks armed with this firmness.

I think it is one of the most interesting leagues in recent years.

The return to Primera of cities such as Almería, Valladolid and Girona give variety to the championship, with hobbies of different sensibilities, showing the passion that exists in every corner of the country.

Football is a wonderful showcase of our culture, an outlet to the world, and there are projects strong enough to gain a foothold in the elite.

A league of the most shocking

The season will also have that additional incentive of Qatar 2022. That world championship that we all look forward to, a summer event that this year will be moved to winter, with the months of November and December as the setting.

It is an atypical situation, which is going to split the calendar in half, and which makes the tournament more unpredictable than usual.

I think that the management of the groups is going to be fundamental, the influence of the coaches is going to be key.

In that duel of benches it will be fantastic to see Xavi's management, having the opportunity to take on the team from the first day.

Last season he had the role of restoring the spirit to the dressing room, giving it a style and closing the year in the best possible way.

Now, although the club is experiencing an uncertain situation, and with the challenge of making all the signings fit in, nobody knows the product they have like him.

Ancelotti's Madrid will seek to extend the seal left in 2022. After one of the most exciting Champions Leagues ever and a domestic tournament dominated by margin, the commitment to perform in the League is another step of greatness.

The whites have only linked league titles once in the last 32 years, something they hope to change this year.

With a possible sextet

on the horizon

, knocking down that door is a necessary goal.

For now, with the European Super Cup they have taken the first step.

The departure of players who have been starters in recent years, such as Luis Suárez at Atlético, or the start of projects with a new captain at the helm, the one illustrated by Gattuso's Valencia, place many clubs before new stages of hope for his fans.

We will live again those intense competitions for permanence, where staying alive is as big as lifting a title.

Where each day is a roulette of emotions for the fans, from the biggest, who fight for the trophy year after year, to the smallest, for whom an unexpected point has the flavor of a decisive goal in added time.

Football is a reflection of society.

It excites us, it disappoints us, but we cannot miss it enough.

In life, many times you have to start over from scratch.

And football is part of life.
