Barcelona and Real Madrid are set to resume their domination in the Spanish league this weekend, as their rivals band together to level the financial playing field against the two giants.
Spain's traditional powerhouses recorded lopsided victories in the opening league round and could very well do so again Saturday as Barcelona is at Real Sociedad and Madrid welcomes Getafe in a Spanish capital derby.
With the duo's grip on Spanish football ever strengthening, at least a dozen of the remaining 18 topflight clubs are meeting Thursday to discuss measures aimed at improving TV revenue sharing. About half of that money currently goes to Barcelona and Madrid.
Meanwhile, Villarreal must quickly forget about the 5-0 loss to Barcelona with Sevilla visiting, and Zaragoza looks to bounce back from its 6-0 defeat to Madrid at newly promoted Rayo Vallecano.
