Zidane and Ronaldo led Real Madrid to three consecutive triumphs in the Champions League over the past three years, but the French coach left the club early in the summer, and then Ronaldo shocked the world of football by joining Serie A champions Juventus.

Former head coach of the national team of Spain Julen Lopetegui took over as head coach of Real Madrid, but is already under pressure after losing the Uefa Super Cup against rivals Atletico with the score of 4-2.

Ernesto Valverde’s men remained unbeaten last season, leaving far behind their closest competitors.

Barca also received an additional impetus after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid to Juventus, meaning Lionel Messi no longer face one of the most exciting personal confrontations in the history of football.
