The commencement of Barcelona’s fervent quest to safeguard their La Liga crown is nigh, as the Catalan juggernaut gears up to embark on a compelling campaign, initiating their odyssey under the dazzling floodlights of Coliseum Alfonso Perez against Getafe.

The echoes of last season’s triumph still resonate, etching the narrative of Xavi’s astute leadership as his side clinched the league laurels with a resounding 10-point margin over their perennial rivals, Real Madrid, who occupied the runner-up berth.
