BARCELONA, Spain -- The English Premier League may be splashing the cash but as long as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Luis Suarez and Gareth Bale call La Liga home, then Spain is where the best players will be performing each week.After Suarezs league-leading 40 goals from last season, Barcelona begins its campaign for a third straight domestic title on Saturday, when Real Betis comes to Camp Nou.We head into the league as reigning champions and with the intention of defending our title, Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said.Champions League winner Real Madrid gets going with a match at Real Sociedad on Sunday, before Atletico Madrid, which has earned its place among preseason contenders, hosts the promoted Alaves.Luis Enrique has had a near perfect two seasons in charge, sweeping the league and Copa del Rey titles, and winning the Champions League in year one. He added the Spanish Super Cup to his trophy haul on Wednesday when Barcelona completed a 5-0 aggregate victory over Sevilla.Besides maintaining the same high standards, Luis Enriques biggest task will be to make sure Messi moves past this summer, when he hit the low point of his otherwise stellar career.The clubs all-time leading scorer was embarrassed both on and off the pitch in June. First came a judges verdict that found Messi and his father guilty of defrauding the Spanish tax office of 4.1 million euros ($4.6 million). Both men will appeal.That was followed by Messi losing a third consecutive final with Argentina. Distraught, Messi said immediately after the Copa America final defeat to Chile that he was finished playing for his nation, only to later retract and say he would give it another go.Cristiano Ronaldos offseason, by contrast, could not have been sweeter.The Real Madrid forward is the favorite to win the Ballon dOr after finally conquering an elusive title for Portugal, which managed without him after he was injured in the European Championship final to beat France.Bale was also strengthened by Euro 2016 after an excellent performance to lead Wales to the semifinals.Fewer coaches have entered a season at the Santiago Bernabeu in a securer position than Zinedine Zidane. After a bumpy start to his coaching debut midway through last campaign, Zidane got his team going when it mattered and now has a Champions League title as a manager to solidify his place in club lore that he first earned as a player.Normally eager to make a splashy summer signing, Madrid president Florentino Perez has limited his purchases to bringing back striker Alvaro Morata from Juventus.Thats just fine for Zidane, who said: I am happy with the players I have. We won the European Cup with them.Barcelona has beefed up its defense and midfield. Newcomers Andre Gomes and Denis Suarez will join Andres Iniesta, Ivan Rakitic, Rafina and Arda Turan as playmakers, while Barcelonas defense has undergone a quiet upheaval. Dani Alves left along with Marc Bartra and Thomas Vermaelen -- in came Frenchmen Samuel Umtiti and Lucas Digne.This is the best squad I have had since I am at Barca, Luis Enrique said. We have a greater number of midfielders who are versatile and some who can play in attack. That helps the team a lot.Atletico Madrid has solidified its role as the third team in Spain, despite a huge budget difference compared to the two powerhouses.Coach Diego Simeone will once again try to get his hardworking team to overachieve and be in the title race for a fourth straight year ever since its against-the-odds 2014 title. His biggest hurdle may be keeping his squad convinced the extra effort is worth it after another agonizing loss to Real Madrid in the final of the Champions League last season.Antoine Griezmann is set to lead Atletico Madrid after a breakout summer with France at the European Championship. Kevin Gameiro has arrived from Sevilla to form a speedy attack with Griezmann, while Nicolas Gaitan joins a midfield led by Jorge Koke Resurreccion and Saul Niguez.The best of the rest of the 20-team field depends on how well Sevilla reboots under new manager Jorge Sampaoli, and if Villarreal can maintain its attacking style after the surprising coaching change of Fran Escriba replacing Marcelino Garcia.An outsider to keep an eye on is the new-look Espanyol. Long in the shadow of crosstown rival Barcelona and no stranger to the relegation fight, Espanyol under new owner Chen Yansheng has launched an ambitious plan to challenge for a European spot with coach Quique Sanchez Flores. Nikita Kucherov Jersey .4 million title.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Rams have been mostly on the move for eight straight months. Theyve had little time to dwell on anything during their cross-country relocation and their nomadic new beginning in Southern California.After the debacle that was their regular season opener, coach Jeff Fisher is grateful theyve learned how to move on quickly.Theres a natural sense of disappointment and frustration, but youve got to push that out, Fisher said Tuesday. Youve got to eliminate that and come back and make it work.The Rams coaching staff returned from that 28-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers and worked through a sleepless night to begin preparations for Sundays historic homecoming game against Seattle. While the Rams cant dwell on the embarrassment of their trip to the Bay Area, Fisher saw the depth of the work theyre facing just to be competitive with the mighty Seahawks at the Coliseum.Youve heard of the 24-hour rule, right? Fisher asked. Youve got 24 hours to get this thing over with and corrected and done. In this case, I gave them a 22-hour rule, because weve got a short week.The Rams comprehensive failures were undeniably worrying, particularly on offense. Los Angeles managed 185 yards, went 3 for 15 on third downs, punted a league-high 10 times and never even reached the red zone against an opponent that isnt expected to be particularly good this season.Fisher saw several reasons for the Rams offensive struggles, largely centering on their inability to establish a running game. Todd Gurley got 47 yards on 17 carries against a San Francisco defense designed specifically to stop him -- the same basic strategy thats likely to be used by every opponent of a team that has a star running back, but made no significant upgrades to the NFLs worst passing offense last season.Their commitment was to stop the run with Todd, and then try to get us to make the plays outside, Fisher said.dddddddddddd But we wanted to stay with the run, because its the run game that helps you get the plays outside.Case Keenum went 17 for 35 in his first NFL opening-week start, and backup Sean Mannion didnt get a snap. Fisher said No. 1 pick Jared Goff could step in for Mannion as Keenums backup against Seattle, but the Rams wont decide until later in the week.Fisher also was concerned by the Rams 10 penalties, including seven against the defense. Gurley committed a taunting penalty that stalled a decent drive, while defensive lineman Aaron Donald got ejected for a late scuffle with a 49ers player and an official.While Fisher saw the reasons behind his two stars reactions, he didnt condone them.We addressed it, Fisher said. These are two captains that had significant penalties in this game. We just cant have that.After getting routed by the one NFC West team they were expected to beat, the Rams take a big step up in opposition quality this weekend for their long-awaited official return to Los Angeles. Another huge crowd is expected to welcome home the Rams, who set an NFL preseason game record with the crowd at last months first exhibition.With the results from Santa Clara still stinging, Fisher realizes the Rams need every possible boost to get competitive this season.I would like to think that we would have a significant home-field advantage there, Fisher said. From a personal standpoint, Im excited about this. This is our home opener. So were disappointed in what happened last night, but as the week goes on, the enthusiasm and the excitement is going to grow.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL White NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Hoodies Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys ' ' '
