A Brief History of La Liga
La Liga was founded back in 1929 and originally consisted of just 10 teams. The winners of the very first Liga were Barcelona, Real Madrid also won titles in 1932 and 1933. However, the early years of La Liga were dominated by Basque club, Athletic Bilbao, winning the title in 1930, 1931, 1934 and 1936. Real Betis also won their only title (so far) in 1935. The Primera División, as it was known then, was suspended during the Spanish Civil War.
The 1950s saw the start of the Barcelona/Real Madrid dominance in La Liga and Europe, thanks to the brilliance of players like Alfred di Stefano and Ferenc Puskás for Real Madrid and László Kubala for Barcelona. During this period, Real Madrid also won an unprecedented five consecutive European Cups, a feat unlikely to repeated for a long time.
A total of 9 different teams have won the Spanish Football Championship. Leading the way are Real Madrid (33), Barcelona (25), Atlético Madrid (10), Athletic Bilbao (8), Valencia (6), Real Sociedad (2), Deportivo La Coruña, Sevilla and Real Betis all have one title each. Atlético Madrid's title win in 2014 was the first time in 10 years that neither Real Madrid or Barcelona claimed the title and, with Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Madrid for Juventus, is this the the time for a changing of the guard. Atletico managed to keep hold of Barcelona target Griezmann and their squad is looking as strong as ever.
