Welcome to the Café des Sports at 4:10 p.m. UT, where it will be about: • Back to school in La Liga.

Towards a new showdown between Merengue and Blaugrana?

The Whites retain the framework of players who carried them last season.

The Blues and Reds intend to break their hegemony, reinforced by Lewandowski, Raphinha and Kessié among others.

How were they able to generate cash?

- And the others: Atlético: Witsel and Morata (back), Isco arrives at Sevilla FC, will the Andalusians be able to compete?


Ligue 1:

first for Galtier in Paris.

A task coach, return of Mbappé, while Messi and Neymar shone.

- The fashion of the "loft": the banished train separately, pressure put on the reprobates of the workforce to leave, or extend.

Do clubs have too many footballers under contract?

Returning players:

Luis Suarez at the Nacional, the “Pistolero” with the Montevideo club's white tunic, 17 years after his first appearance.

- Timo Werner in Leipzig, the 26-year-old striker wants to relaunch with the "Rotten Bullen" as the World Cup approaches.

Cardboard sequence at the end of the issue.

Around Annie Gasnier: François David, Rémy Ngono and Xavier Barret.

Video production: Yann Bourdelas/Pierre Rolland.

Audio production: Laurent Salerno.
