Will Barcelona win the league?
Real Madrid has been on a roll, capping a remarkable 2016-17 season with La Liga and Champions League titles. Unfortunately, Los Blancos have started this season slowly, while Lionel Messi has been tearing teams apart with his usual wizardry. Will the Catalans reclaim the league trophy? Can the Argentine retain the Pichichi Trophy for another year?
