The history of La Liga
La Liga have a long history and traditions in Spain. The idea of creating a national league in Spain came from a football club named Arenas Club de Getxo in 1927. After two years of work the league came out in reality and played the first league game with 10 teams. Barcelona was the firs team to win the league.
Many famous players are in La Liga
This league is really magical players and these are prominent names in the big world scene. They have also performed lots of games and goals while playing in this league. Names like Lionel Messi, Christiano Ronaldo and Raúl have made a significant amount of goals. Lionel Messi made his 400th goal in La Liga on January 13, 2019 for his team Barcelona when they met Eibar at home. Messi is the first player in La Liga to have achieved that record. If we look at the statistics at the same time, Ronaldo is not that much worse with his 311 goals, but he has a bit left to reach Messi.
In La Liga in the first division there are 20 participating teams, you see which are the current teams here below. All of these play two matches against each other where a win gives 3 points and a draw result gives 1 point. When the team loses, no point is awarded.
The teams meet plays once in their home arena and then a second time away. Once all matches have been played, you have a winner.
The best three teams in the table are directly qualified for games in the Champions League. The team in fourth place qualifies to play CL. The three lowest placed teams are moved down to the second division. From the second division, every season three teams move up. It is the two top teams and another team that is the winner of the qualifying game between the teams in place 3-6.
Of course, playing in the highest division is extraordinarily good and rewarding and it is of course not one of the teams that wants to return to the second division again. Many have, however, done so, but there are some teams that have always played in the highest division. The teams that never moved down from the first division are Real Madrid, Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao.
