The 2015-16 Spanish La Liga season kicks off this weekend with Malaga versus Sevilla kicking off the action on Friday. The most-exciting fixture of the opening weekend in Spain may be Sunday’s match between Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona after the Basque side shocked last season’s treble winners with a 5-1 aggregate victory in the Spanish Super Cup earlier this week. Both of these matches and most of the opening weekend’s fixtures will be shown live for viewers in the United States on beIN Sports.

The match between Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona features two of the top sides in Spanish football and Luis Enrique’s side will be keen on revenge after a 4-0 thrashing last Friday at this venue led to them missing out on the chance to lift six trophies this season.
Barcelona were 5-2 winners in this league fixture last season but the results in the Super Cup suggest that it won’t be such a walk in the park for the defending La Liga and Champions League holders.
However, Athetlic were in Zilina, Slovakia on Thursday night for Europa League action – will this bring the fatigue and a lack of match preparation into play for the home side?
34-year-old Aritz Aduriz could be the star of the show for the home team after he scored a 15-minute hat-trick in this fixture one week ago. However, Athletic will have to deal with the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Ivan Rakitic for the third time in less than a fortnight if they’re to get off to a good start in the new season.
The 53,000 San Mames Stadium will be the venue for this fixture on Sunday, two hours before title challengers Real Madrid kick off their season opener at Sporting Gijon.
