    Default how to translate "dispute" (football context)

    I have the following text:

    La Liga está divertida, una vez más la disputa Madrid-Barcelona está bonita.

    My attempt:
    La Liga is fun; once again, the Madrid-Barcelona competition looks pretty interesting.

    What do you think? Any other suggestions? I have an issue with the word "competition" and the translation of "bonita" in this context. This has been taken from nterview to some football club manager.

    Thank you!

    It is hard to say without more context, but you might translate it as, “Once again, the Madrid-Barcelona contest is a good one.” Or, “Once again, the Madrid-Barcelona matchup is a fine spectacle.”

    Or you could simply translate it as "match". "disputa": sporting contest between two teams, i.e. game or match.
