La Liga 2022-23: Champions Real Madrid begin 2022-23 season with UEFA Super Cup glory

Real Madrid enjoyed a stunning 2021-22 campaign, breezing to the La Liga title before lifting their 14th European Cup at Stade de France courtesy of a 1-0 win over Liverpool in the final.

Los Blancos had the league title wrapped up at the end of April, allowing head coach Carlo Ancelotti to rotate his squad in the final weeks of the campaign, which certainly paid off for the club.

Real Madrid will be looking to hold off competition from a revitalised Barcelona in the new campaign, and it would also be some achievement if they could win the Champions League once again.

At this point, there have only been two new signings this summer, with Aurelien Tchouameni arriving in a big-money deal from Monaco, while Antonio Rudiger made the move on a free transfer from Chelsea.

Real Madrid’s La Liga fixtures 2022-23

Real Madrid will begin their 2022-23 La Liga campaign away to newly-promoted outfit Almeria on August 14, and their first three matches are all away, including games with Celta Vigo and Espanyol, due to the remodelling work that is taking place at their home stadium.

The team’s first league fixture of the season at Bernabeu will be against Real Betis on September 3, while they will travel to Wanda Metropolitano to face Atletico Madrid in the Madrid derby on September 17.

The first Clasico of the campaign will take place at Bernabeu on October 15, while the team’s final match ahead of the break for the 2022 World Cup comes against Cadiz on November 8.

Ancelotti’s side will then not be back in action until December 30, facing a trip to Real Valladolid, while they will take on Atletico at home at the end of February.

The second league Clasico of the campaign comes at Camp Nou in the middle of March, while they will have five games in May, facing Real Sociedad, Getafe, Valencia, Rayo Vallecano and Sevilla ahead of their final league game of the season at home to Athletic Bilbao on June 3.

KEY PLAYER – Karim Benzema

Benzema enjoyed an incredible 2021-22 season for Real Madrid, scoring 44 goals and providing 15 assists in 46 appearances in all competitions, playing a leading role in their success.

In La Liga, the France international scored 27 goals and provided 12 assists in 32 matches, while he netted 15 times and contributed two assists in 12 Champions League appearances.

Benzema also registered in both the semi-finals and final of this season’s Spanish Super Cup to help Los Blancos win the trophy, and he has now scored 324 goals and registered 159 assists in 605 games for Real Madrid, meaning that only Cristiano Ronaldo (450) has netted more times for the club.

LAST SEASON – Champions

Real Madrid proved to be far too strong for the rest of the competition in La Liga last season, boasting a record of 26 wins, eight draws and four defeats from 38 matches, which saw them collect 86 points.

Ancelotti’s side were 13 points ahead of second-place Barcelona and 15 clear of Atletico in third, with the title secured at the end of April when they recorded a 4-0 win over Espanyol.

Real Madrid actually drew their final two league games of the season against Cadiz and Real Betis, with Ancelotti rotating his squad for the Champions League final.

Los Blancos secured the European Cup by beating Liverpool in France, while they also had famous successes over Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City en route to winning the competition.

Real Madrid also lifted the Spanish Super Cup by beating Athletic Bilbao 2-0 in the final, but they were knocked out by Athletic in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey.

Not too many expected Los Blancos to be a major force in La Liga last term, while they were not considered to be among the favourites for the Champions League at the start of the campaign, having lost influential centre-backs in the shape of Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos last summer.

A quiet transfer window saw only David Alaba and Eduardo Camavinga arrive, but the likes of Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, Luka Modric, Benzema and Vinicius Junior all had spectacular campaigns for the club.
