The off-season in Spain has been filled with transfer activities from the top three clubs in the top flight. Real Madrid as expected made a huge splash in the market signing the likes of Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic.

Barcelona not to be undone signed Antoine Griezmann from rivals Atletico Madrid. Atletico Madrid meanwhile secured Portuguese golden boy Joao Felix from Benfica for a club record fee. All the sehappeningsmean that we are in for an amazing season.

From a soccer betting fan perspective, the following should apply.

Barcelona are the favourites to win a third successive La Liga title as the Catalans have the strongest attack in the Spanish top flight. Boasting of the talents of Messi, Suarez, Griezmann, Coutinho and Dembélé, the league is theirs to lose.

There have also been reports that Brazilian superstar Neymar is close to a return to the club which would be sensational news. Last season the club depended soley on Messi but this season could price different. The only problem is whether manager Ernesto Valverde can bring the best out of the players at his disposal.

Real Madridhave embarked on their traditional transfer spree after a season to forget. The arrival of Eden Hazard is a game changer as the Belgium international is capable of winning matches singlehandedly.

Luka Jovic is also an excellent forward in his own rights and the signing of Militao is an astute one at the back. The club only needs a central midfielder to complement their current option.

Atletico Madrid season looks like one of transition with the departure of several stars. Antoine Griezmann,DiegoGodin,Juanfran have left the club closing a chapterr of players that have served the club excellently in the past seven seasons.

The only good part is that charismatic manager Diego Simeone remains at the helms of affairs. The arrival of Joao Felix is a big risk for the club but could prove to be an astute one if he delivers on his promise.
