    The Spanish players union and the league are due to meet again on Friday for last minute talks, to try and avert a two-week strike.

    The two sides have so far failed to agree on an emergency fund to cover player wages when a club goes into financial administration.

    The season is due to begin on Saturday, but six top-flight teams are already broke - including newly promoted Granada.

    As Matt Rumsey found out, they're facing a tough task to make an impression on their return to La Liga.
