Barcelona and Real Madrid are the two main contenders for the prize, but Atletico Madrid can never be written off under the management of their long-term boss Diego Simeone.

Real Madrid are the favorites to win the La Liga 2023/24 title with the best online sportsbooks. Carlo Ancelotti remains at the helm despite strong links with the Brazil job (which he will reportedly take next summer) and Madrid have added Jude Bellingham to their squad this summer.
However, the departure of Karim Benzema leaves the Blancos in need of a prolific new center-forward ahead of the upcoming campaign.
Barcelona also have designs on the La Liga title. The Blaugrana are keen to make a much better fist of European competition this time around, but they will not neglect the league.
Atletico Madrid have become the third force in Spanish soccer over the last decade, during which time they have won two titles. Could they claim another in 2023/24? Do not write them off.
As for the likes of Sevilla, Real Sociedad, Real Betis, Villarreal and Athletic Bilbao, it would be a huge shock if any such outsiders went on to finish on top of the pile.
Barcelona were the La Liga title winners in 2022/23, as the club from Catalonia ended a four-year wait for the trophy. Xavi Hernandez steered them to glory in his first full season as the club’s manager - an impressive achievement from the former midfielder.
Barcelona ended the campaign on 88 points after winning 28 and drawing four of their 38 encounters. They finished 10 points clear of Real Madrid in second spot, and never really looked in danger of dropping off the summit of the standings.

Real Madrid are the most successful side in Spanish soccer history. The club from the capital have won nine more titles than any other team.
Barcelona have begun to catch up to them over the last 20 years, though. Indeed, the Blaugrana have been the most successful side of the 2000s, winning 11 championships to Madrid’s eight. Atletico Madrid remain a distance behind the big two.
Only 11 teams have won the La Liga title. That is a surprisingly low number given the competition was founded in 1929 and has been taking place on an annual basis ever since, save for a four-year gap during the Spanish Civil War. By way of comparison, 19 clubs have won the English top flight in the same period.
Real Madrid and Barcelona were not dominant from the get-go, however. The most successful side up until the early 1950s was Athletic Bilbao, closely followed by Atletico Madrid. The big two got going in that decade, though, and have hardly looked back since.
