Barcelona Football Club's defense to La Liga title will start in the toughest fashion possible with a series of tough fixture right from the starting day. The start in itself is spectacular with Barca visiting the San Mamés to kick start their title defense. Now usually a travel to Athletic Bilbao's home ground is a tricky affair; but this time around it may not be that tricky as we already would have traveled to the same place to face them in the Spanish Super Cup. Yes, you heard that right, three out of four of Barca's starting match is with Athletic Bilbao and all of those come in a series. Barca will start the 2015-16 season against Sevilla in the UEFA Super cup, followed by the two Spanish Super Copa matches against Athletic Bilbao and then the La Liga opener at the San Mamés. In the first 12 rounds of the La Liga we will be facing Athletic Bilbao, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Real Madrid away from home. Despite such a tough start to the season, FC Barcelona remains the football betting sites favourite to win the 2015-16 La Liga title.

Having won all the available trophies in the 2014 - 15 season, there will be expectation once again of Luis Enrique's boy's to match Guardiola's achievement. In the calendar year 2009, Guardiola won a total of six trophies out of six. Luis Enrique will be trying to emulate the same when he officially start Barca's campaign against Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup. That will be the first cup Barca will compete for, followed by the Spanish Super Cup and the World Club cup towards the end of the year.

For Luis Enrique, the testing phase of his Barca managerial career is far from over. He may have won all the titles available last season, but that will simply increase the scrutiny he is going to face this season. Then above all there is that unending craving for a back to back UEFA Champions League victory in the mind of every cule. We came close in Guardiola's second season were we were stopped by eventual champion's Inter Milan from reaching a dream final at Bernebeu. This time around the final will be at the San Siro, where our dreams were quashed in 2010. We will be dreaming yet again.

Technically Barca is blocked from signing any new players till the end of this transfer window. But that hasn't stopped from continuing our pursuit. Already we have signed Aleix Vidal and Arda Turan both of them will play only in January. The pursuit is still on for a host other players including Paul Pogba, every club's target this transfer window. Add to that the elections that will take place this summer, things are only getting hotter!.
