Spain: La Liga Weekend Preview & Eduardo Alvarez's Quiniela

With a second round of strike action averted, the La Liga season begins with the fixture between Barcelona and Villarreal the pick of the lot. Elsewhere, there is an intriguing clash at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan where Sevilla host big-spending Andalusian rivals Malaga. Malaga, whose week-one fixture would have pitted them against Barca, have brought in the likes of Santi Cazorla, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Joaquin and Jeremy Toulalan this summer. Atletico Madrid have also splashed the cash following the summer departures of key players Sergio Aguero, David de Gea and Tomas Ujfalusi, including spending an initial 40million euros - rising to a possible 47million euros - on prolific Colombian Falcao. Atletico being their campaign at home to Osasuna.
