Real Madrid and Barcelona are the two biggest clubs in the Laliga. The two teams have been highly impressive in performance and are among the best clubs in the top five European leagues.
The Los blancos won the UEFA Champions league title and the Laliga title last season. Real Madrid stars including Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and Vinicius Junior were highly impressive in performance across all competitions for the Los blancos.
Barcelona on the other hand failed to win a single title last season but they plan on competing for different titles this season. The Catalan club have been very busy in this summer transfer window having secured the signing of Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Kessie, Kounde and Andreas Christensen.
The new signings are among the best players in their respective positions.

Barcelona Defensive Options
The Catalan club signed Jules Kounde from Sevilla for a fee of €50 million. Ronald Araujo, Andreas Christensen, Jordi Alba, Alejandro Balde, Gerard Pique, Dest and Eric Garcia are Barcelona defensive options for 2022/2023 season.
Frenkie De Jong can also play as a centre-back but his future at Barcelona is still unclear. Gerard Pique may also struggle with playing minutes following the arrival of Jules Kounde and Andreas Christensen.
