Not much to report today, but I will leave you with a few quick hits as we look forward to the season opener tomorrow!
- AS have confirmed that Filipe Luís will miss the season opener with a foot injury. With Diego Godín also out due to suspension our defensive depth will be tested early.
- Atlético Madrid released a video of the captains’ press conference, which includes their thoughts on the season opener. Definitely worth a watch.
- FIFA have released the finalists for Player of the Year and Antoine Griezmann has made the short list along with many of the usual suspects.
- If you can’t wait for tomorrow, remember that league play gets under way this afternoon when Leganes host Alavés at 2:15 (ET) and Valencia host Las Palmas at 4:15 (ET).
And that’s really all we have for you today. Keep your eyes peeled for pregame content as we close in on the opener Saturday at 2:15 (ET). Until then I’ll leave you with the obvious question: Who would you like to see recognized as Player of the Year?
