Sure, they have Barca and Madrid but what else? This is the reason why I hate the spanish League. For intense, this season Barcelona and Madrid made 99 and 96 point, people say is historic but check the stats for the teams. Most of the other teams are just playing for third place and other to stay in the league. Most of the other teams cant afford players like villa, Xavi, etc. This league is garbage, I used to watch it a looong time ago, but now I watch the Premiere League. Fifa should put a limit to what the teams can spend and see how those teams do without some of the best players in the world.
