With three days to go: these are the LaLiga eleven

On Friday a new season will begin in LaLiga with Valencia-Getafe and the clubs have already finalized what will be their first eleven of the campaign.


On Friday at 9:00 p.m. the ball will roll in Mestalla to kick off the 2021-22 season. It will be the season in which, finally, fans return to the stadiums, although for now it will do so with a reduced capacity. With only four days to go, the coaches outline the final touches of what will be their first line-ups of a campaign that will be full of great emotions.Atlético de Madrid

The current champion will start the defense of the title with an eleven that will differ little from the one most used last season. Oblak is indisputable. Ahead, Cholo will maintain its bet on Hermoso, Savic and Giménez in the line of three centrals with Carrasco and Trippier as lanes. In the center of the field, De Paul starts with an advantage to accompany Koke and Llorente, and above it Correa is the one who has the best chance of accompanying Suárez.

XI: Oblak; Trippier, Giménez, Savic, Hermoso, Carrasco; Llorente, Koke, De Paul; Suarez and Correa.

Real Madrid

The white team is one of those that will undergo the most changes in its eleven compared to last season, especially after the departure of Ramos and Varane and with the return of Ancelotti to the bench. Courtois has no rival under the sticks, Carvajal is expected although it is likely that Nacho will replace him. Marcelo, Alaba and Militao will complete the defense. In the center of the field, the trio Casemiro, Modric, Kroos is immovable, although the latter's pubalgia disrupts the plans. Valverde and even Isco could be his substitutes, since Odegaard does not finish convincing. Above, Lucas Vázquez and Rodrygo will accompany Benzema.

XI: Courtois; Nacho, Militao, Alaba, Marcelo; Casemiro, Modric, Valverde; Lucas Vázquez, Benzema and Rodrygo.


Barcelona has many fronts open still due to its economic problems. In goal, Ter Stegen is still injured and, with Neto on the starting ramp, everything indicates that Iñaki Peña will be the goalkeeper at the start of the League. Eric García, if he can finally be registered, will be Piqué's squire, with Jordi Alba and Emerson in the bands. The center of the field seems destined for Busquets, De Jong and Pedri, although the latter will surely have a well-deserved rest for the benefit of Sergi Roberto or even Riqui Puig. With the injury of Agüero and the non-renewal of Messi, Braithwaite wins integers to be the '9' of Barcelona, with Griezmann and Depay at the ends.

XI: Peña; Emerson, Piqué, Eric, Jordi Alba; Busquets, De Jong, Sergi Roberto; Griezmann, Braithwaite and Depay.


Surely, the Seville team will be one of those that most maintains the block from last season. Bono will be the goalkeeper, although he will have to be careful, since he has Dmitrovic behind him waiting for an opportunity. In defense, Acuña, Navas and Koundé will remain and, although Diego Carlos is a fixture, his late return due to his participation in the Olympic Games will cause Rekik to jump to eleven. Fernando, Jordán and Rakitic will be present in the core, although Lamela should not be ruled out. In the attack, En-Nesyri, Suso and Ocampos once again start with an advantage over the rest.

XI: Bond; Navas, Koundé, Rekik, Acuña; Fernando, Jordán, Rakitic; Suso, En-Nesyri and Ocampos.

Real Sociedad

The Alguacil's men will attempt the assault on the Camp Nou with an eleven full of news due to injuries and the Olympic Games. Remiro will be in charge of keeping the attack culé at bay. Aritz and Le Normand start as starters for the coach, with Gorosabel and Diego Rico as the favorites to occupy the wings. In the center of the field, Merino and Zubimendi will rest, so Illarramendi and Guevara could share the double pivot if they are physically well. Silva will be the midfielder and Januzaj could beat Portu on the right after his great preseason. Barrenetxea will be the one to replace Oyarzabal, also present at the Olympics and Isak will be in charge of scoring.

XI: Remiro; Gorosabel, Aritz, Le Normand, Diego Rico; Illarramendi, Guevara; Januzaj, Silva, Barrenetxea; Isak.


Betis will have several changes compared to the team that returned him to Europe last season. Rui Silva starts as a favorite to defend the goal. With Miranda relentlessly for the Olympics and Sabaly touched, the wings will probably be for Álex Moreno and Montoya. Víctor Ruiz is fixed in the axis of the rear and Bartra, if he overcomes his annoyances, will be the one to accompany him. Canales, injured in the ankle after a stomp suffered against Roma, is doubtful, but he could arrive for the debut. Guido and Guardado could form a couple in the center of the field. Above, Fekir and Borja Iglesias are indisputable for Pellegrini, and Ruibal is the one who leaves with the most options to occupy the far right, since Lainez has not yet returned from Tokyo.

XI: Rui Silva; Montoya, Víctor Ruiz, Bartra, Álex Moreno; Guido, Guarded; Ruibal, Canales, Fekir; Borja Iglesias.


In the season of the return to the Champions League, Asenjo will be one more season the goalkeeper of the 'Submarino'. Mandi, a newcomer, will accompany Albiol in the debut, since Pau Torres has not had a rest all summer. Mario Gaspar and Pedraza are the favorites for the full-backs. With Parejo's injury, Capoue could take his place, with Trigueros and Moi Gómez escorting him. Gerard Moreno and Alcácer will remain immovable, and Yéremi could sneak into a position that is also opposed by the new signing, Boulaye Dia.

Xi: Asenjo; Gaspar, Albiol, Mandi, Pedraza; Capoue, Trigueros, Moi Gómez; Gerard, Alcácer and Yéremi.


The Vigo team will want to continue its great end of the season, where it was close to getting a place that gave it access to the Europa League. Rubén starts with an advantage in the goal for the league start, although Dituro could take his place at any time. Araujo, Aidoo and Hugo Mallo will continue in the eleven for another season, and newcomer Javi Galán will be the owner of the left back. Tapia will be the anchor of the team, with Denis Suárez, Nolito and Brais as three midfielders, although Cervi awaits his moment. Up front, Santi Mina will accompany Iago Aspas.

XI: Rubén; Hugo Mallo, Araujo, Aidoo, Javi Galán; Tapia, Denis, Brais, Nolito; Aspas, Mina.


Despite the change of coach, the Nazaris are expected to continue with the same block. With the departure of Rui Silva, Aarón Escandell will be in charge of stopping balls in Granada. In defense, Foulquier, Germán, Duarte and Neva will remain. In midfield, the big news is the return of Luis Milla, who will accompany Gonalons and Montoro. Puertas, Machís and Luis Suárez will continue in the attack.

XI: Aaron; Foulquier, Germán, Duarte, Neva; Gonalons, Montoro, Milla; Puertas, Luis Suárez and Darwin Machís.


Athletic is committed to keeping the same team one more year, given the financial problems that prevent large outlays. Unai Simón is fixed in the goal, but he needs a vacation, so it will be the youth squad Agirrezabala who will take his place in the debut. De Marcos and Balenciaga, faced with the physical problems of Capa and Yuri, will be the full-backs, with Íñigo Martínez and Yeray as a central pair. Unai Vencedor and Dani García will form the double pivot, with Berenguer and Muniaín at the sides and Williams and Sancet as attacking pair.

XI: Agirrezabala; De Marcos, Yeray, Íñigo Martínez, Balenciaga; Berenguer, Vencedor, Dani García, Muniaín; Sancet and Williams.


Osasuna will try to take another leap in the classification and fight for Europe in the year of the return of the public to El Sadar. Sergio Herrera will continue to defend the red goal. With Aridane's injury, Unai García and David García will be in the center of the rear, while the bands will be for Nacho Vidal and Cote, although he is touched and Juan Cruz could enter in his place. Torró, Rubén García and Oier seem fixed in the medullary for Arrasate, while the 'Chimy' Ávila, who finally returns, will go straight to eleven sharing an attack with Kike Barja and Budimir.

XI: Sergio; Nacho Vidal, Unai, David García, Cote; Torró, Rubén García, Oier; Barja, Budimir and 'Chimy' Ávila.


The Cádiz team will enjoy one more year of the First Division and will try to stay again, since they retain practically the same squad. Ledesma, who is already his property, will defend the goal. Fali is fixed in the center of the defense, and Marcos Mauro and Haroyan will compete for the other position in the debut, since Cala still does not have the necessary rhythm. Iza and 'Pacha' Espino will continue to occupy the wings. Alarcón could accompany Jonsson in midfield, although Álex Fernández could also delay his position. Salvi and Negredo will be in the eleven, and Perea and Osmajic, who has surprised in the preseason, will compete for the left winger, although they could even play to the detriment of Alarcón.

XI: Ledesma; Iza, Fali, Haroyan, Espino; Salvi, Jonsson, Álex Fernández, Perea; Negredo and Osmajic.


The arrival of Bordalás will change many things in Valencia, especially in the mental aspect, since the scheme will be the same with which the Che team ended the season. Mamardashvili leaves as the favorite to be the goalkeeper in the league premiere due to the discomfort in Cillessen's twin. Alderete will form the rear with Gabriel, with Correia and Gayà at the sides. Hugo Guillamón could be part of the midfield, since Bordalás has proved him a lot in that position, before the loss of Carlos Soler, who has not yet returned from Tokyo. Racic will be the other member of the core. Wass and Cheryshev will be the interiors and Guedes will form an attack pair with Maxi Gómez.

XI: Mamardashvili; Correia, Gabriel, Alderete, Gayà; Cheryshev, Guillamón, Racic, Wass; Maxi Gómez and Guedes.


After a bad end to the season, the Granotas want to start the new campaign with a different air. Cárdenas could seat Aitor and occupy the goal. Clerc, Miramón and Vezo are indisputable in defense, and Róber will replace the injured Postigo, although Duarte could also enter. Campaña will return to eleven when he is fully recovered and Melero leaves with an advantage to accompany him, but Radoja has options. Bardhi and De Frutos will be the interiors and Morales and Roger will play up. Soldier will await his chance to storm the eleven.

XI: Dani Cárdenas; Miramón, Vezo, Róber, Clerc; De Frutos, Campaña, Melero, Bardhi; Morales and Roger.


The post-Bordalás era begins in Mestalla for a team that needed a change. David Soria will be the goalkeeper and the defense will have a new member, the Serbian Mitrovic, who will form together with Djené, Damián and Olivera. Maksimovic, Arambarri and Aleñá will be in charge of distributing the game in the center of the field. Up front, Jaime Mata and Ünal are fixed, and the remaining position will be for Vitolo if he overcomes his annoyances, since Cucurella will not be available.

XI: David Soria; Olivera, Djené, Mitrovic, Damián; Maksimovic, Arambarri, Aleñá; Mata, Ünal and Vitolo.


After saving themselves with uncertainty last season, the babazorros begin the new season by facing Madrid. Pacheco will be in charge of trying to keep a clean sheet. In defense, the right-back is the only doubt, with Martín and Ximo competing for the position, since Laguardia, Lejeune and Duarte are indisputable. Pina and Pons will integrate the core, with Edgar Méndez and Rioja on the bands. Above, Lucas Pérez will be the center forward. Joselu's position, immersed in a sea of doubts about his future at the club, will probably be filled by newcomer Manu García.

XI: Pacheco; Martín, Laguardia, Lejeune, Duarte; Pina, Pons; Edgar, Manu García, Rioja; Lucas Pérez.


The people of Elche continue one more season in the First Division after their miraculous salvation. The eleven he will present is one of the most defined in the League. Edgar Badía, although he could leave the club, will be the goalkeeper at the premiere. In defense there are four fixed: Palacios, Verdú, Bigas and Josema. Guti, Marcone, Fidel and Josan will continue to integrate the core, while the only doubt will be the companion of Boyé. Carrillo and Pere Milla will compete for that position.

XI: Badía; Palacios, Verdú, Bigas, Josema; Fidel, Guti, Marcone, Josan; Boyé, Carrillo.


The Second Division champion returns to the elite of Spanish football with the aim of being at the top. An old man known as Diego López will defend the goal for another year. Miguelón and Pedrosa will be the wings, and the doubt in defense is the companion of Cabrera. Under normal conditions it would be David López, but with the accumulation of casualties in the center of the field, he could advance his position and it would be Calero who entered the eleven. With Puado out for the Olympics and Darder sanctioned, only Keidi is fixed, and he has annoyances. Melendo could be the third in contention. Melamed, due to Dimata's physical problems, will probably accompany Raúl de Tomás y Embarba.

XI: Diego López; Miguelón, Calero, Cabrera, Pedrosa; David López, Keidi, Melendo; Embarba, Raúl De Tomás and Melamed.


The Balearic team returns to Primera after a season and the goal will be permanence. Veteran Manolo Reina will defend the vermilion goal. Raíllo, if he overcomes his annoyances, will accompany Valjent, although if he does not recover, Russo will be in charge of supplying him. Jaume Costa and Maffeo will occupy the bands. Baba and Dani Rodríguez are fixed in the center of the field, and with Antonio Sánchez injured, Salva Sevilla will be the one who completes the medullary. Above, Ruiz de Galarreta, Abdon and Mboula will be the attackers.

XI: Queen; Maffeo; Raíllo, Valjent, Costa; Baba, Dani Rodríguez, Salva Sevilla; Galarreta, Abdon and Mboula.

Rayo Vallecano

Madrid were the last to join Primera and arrive with several changes. Luca Zidane appears to have beaten Dimitrievski's starting race in goal. At the rear, the only doubt is Saveljich, who could be replaced by Mario Suárez due to his discomfort. Balliu, Fran García and Catena are indisputable. Óscar Valentín and Trejo are also fixed in the middle, where Comesaña and even Ciss could enter. Above, Isi Palazón and Álvaro García will be the wingers, and the doubt will be in the center forward, since Qasmi and Andrés compete for the position.

XI: Luca; Balliu, Catena, Saveljich, Fran García; Óscar Valentín, Trejo, Comesaña; Isi, Qasmi and Álvaro García.
