La Liga clubs spent over half a billion euros on player transfers during the summer transfer window. After 7 games, Barcelona are sitting at the top of the table with 21 points, 7 more than Real as the Blancos are struggling with inconsistent form and an ever-growing list of injuries.

Sevilla are continuing from where they left off last season and undefeated Valencia is sitting at 3rd. Malaga got off to a dreadful start and are sitting at the bottom with just 1 point. Real Betis and Real Sociedad are enjoying a good start sitting 6th and 8th in the table respectively.

Let us see the 5 things that we've learnt from this La Liga season so far


#5 Real Betis can be a force to reckon with

Betis finished 15th last season and lost their star midfielder, Dani Cabellos, to Real Madrid. Betis kicked off their campaign with a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Barcelona , but bounced back with some good results.

Betis defeated defending champions Real Madrid 1-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu. They stand 6th in the table with just a point less than Real Madrid and 3 point behind second placed Sevilla. 

Betis forwards Antonio Sanabria, Sergio Leon and Joaquin have played a key role in their positive start. Sanabria & Leon have already bagged 4 goals each, whereas Joaquin has scored 3. With goals coming from everywhere, Betis can be a force to reckon with this season.
