Real Madrid will be looking to defend their La Liga title in a 2022-23 season not to be missed.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side strolled to first-place in 2021-22 and finished 13 points clear of next best Barcelona.
Desperate to dethrone their fierce rivals, Barca have spent big over the summer and brought in some star names like Robert Lewandowski, who look poised to light up La Liga.
Atletico Madrid remain a real force under Diego Simeone too and will be eager to make it a three-way battle for the league title.
Australia will also have a new player in La Liga this season with Socceroos winger Awer Mabil joining Cadiz over the offseason.
La Liga will be broadcast exclusively on Optus Sport this season after they picked up the rights from previous holder beIN Sports.
Optus Sport also currently show the Premier League, among other competitions, with La Liga games to be streamed solely on their service for the 2022-23 season.
