The 2016-17 La Liga season kicked off last week, and continues today with Primera Division action! Reigning champion Barcelona will be taking on Real Betis in their opening match of the season. Barcelona finished in first place last season, while Athletic Bilbao finished 29 points behind in 5th place. In their last 10 visits to San Mamés, Atlethic Bilbao’s stadium, the Catalans only failed to bring points back once, and more often than not have earned all 3 points. Barcelona’s one and only loss was on the first ever appearance at the new San Mamés during the 2013-14 season, when the Athletic Biblao Lions came out with 1-0 win.
The Primera Division is the top section of La Liga, the Spanish soccer league. Barcelona were the champions last year, edging out second place Real Madrid by just one point. You can bet that Messi and company will be keeping that in mind throughout the season, making sure they don’t take their foot off the pedal.
The game will airing at 2:15 PM EST on beIN sports, so find out how to live stream the match online or on your computer or mobile device.
