Barcelona endured a difficult season in 2016-17 with Luis Enrique stepping down after a campaign that yielded only a Copa del Rey title.

Underwhelming in the Champions League and narrowly beaten to the Liga crown by their bitter rivals Real Madrid, Valverde’s brief this season will be to correct those crushing disappointments.

La Liga fixtures announced

Three points separated Barca from Madrid last term, despite the fact that the Catalan club never lost to the capital side and even beat them at the Bernabeu.

Defeats to relatively lesser clubs such as Malaga, Alaves, Deportivo La Coruna and Celta Vigo were ultimately their undoing and the pressure will be on Valverde to ensure such results are avoided this season.

Barca’s league campaign will be interwoven with Champions League games from September to December at least, as well as various domestic competitions.

Before it all kicks off on August 20, Barca will have played pre-season games against Juventus, Manchester United and Chapocoense.

They will also be well familiar with the 2017-18 Real Madrid team, given that they are scheduled to play them three times – twice in the Supercopa and once at the International Champions Cup.
