When Atletico Madrid won La Liga in 2014 it marked the first time a club other than Barcelona or Real Madrid had lifted the title since Valencia ten years previously, and only the second time in those intervening years that Barca and Real hadn’t finished in the top two.
All was back to ‘normal’ last season though as Barcelona and Real dominated the Primera División with 16 and 14 points ahead third-placed Atletico. Córdoba and Almería were the bottom two with 13th-placed Elche joining them in the Segunda División following punishment for unpaid taxes.
This season sees Real Betis, Sporting Gijón and Las Palmas join the ranks of the Spanish elite, with Las Palmas playing in La Liga for the first time since 2001/02.
