La Liga Real Madrid Barcelona next match

La Liga beyond Real Madrid and Barcelona – Possible?

The La Liga began in 1929 with 10 teams. It was only in the 1997 season that 20 teams played in the league.

With almost 9 decades of experience, the league should have been competitive. Unfortunately, this hasn’t been the case. I say this looking at the results for the past 15 years. The results show only Real Madrid and Barcelona as winners and runner ups.

Just imagine the plight of the league where 2 teams decide the fate of the title always. It’s not a good prospect for any player to join another team as the chances of winning reduce.

Yes, Valencia in 2003-04 and Atletico Madrid in 2013-14 did win the league but apart from that the remaining 13 seasons belonged to Barcelona and Real Madrid which brings us to question what is the league beyond these 2 powerhouses?

The answer to this is complicating. You can say money buys good players and hence the league can be won. But Atletico did it with pure talent and not money.

In addition, Barcelona Real Madrid rivalry and head to head is the most sought out match of the La Liga season. There are so much passion and aggression in these matches!

Also, passion for the game always brings out the best in any team. The classic example for this is Leicester City who won the EPL in 2015-16 which was their first time since their 132-year history.

Overall, there are just 3 teams who have been challenging for the top 4 finish like Valencia, Sevilla, and Villareal. If they get some good talent and experienced players, they can surely pull off the invincible. For now, their intent only lies in champions league qualification which is not good for the league’s survival.

The audience loves competition and the attendance will keep dropping if Madrid and Barcelona continue their streak. To conclude, the current La Liga is nothing beyond Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Are you wondering when is the Barcelona Real Madrid next match in the LA Liga?

Then there’s some bad news. Due to the COVID-19 lockdown impact, no football games will take place. Until the situation is contained, the best you can do is watch old Barcelona Real Madrid head to head games!

Growth of Sports in India

India loves sports. This is said considering the fact that everyone loves to play a certain sport. Until 2010, Cricket was the only sport which people liked, the government recognized and gave facilities to push kids into getting good athletes for the nation. Yes, our country is a cricket loving nation. For sure, we were an indestructible force in Hockey in the early thirties but due to ill facilities we could never up our game. Many would either choose cricket as a career or get into the corporate stream. Some dared to try other sports and excel. The reason people chose cricket was because of the exposure, money and competition. Also, other sports did not have much exposure or media attention.

All this changed in the past 5 years. Now apart from the Indian premier league we have;

There are many more leagues for Poker, Polo etc. The point I want to put through is due to all these leagues opening, our national players get exposure and get to share the field alongside players who are on top of the world rankings. The audience in India also have graced all these sports. Would you believe that over 20,000 people watch ISL live on the ground or that people now talk about Kabaddi more often than cricket. Leagues in India need to get more facilities so that home grown players get better in the game and can make our nation proud. Currently it’s a work in progress but within the next 5-7 years, there surely will be growth.
