La Liga - Week 11 Fixtures - 3rd-5th November 2018

Recommended Posts

Good draw for Leganes earlier but points dropped for Atletico.  Chance for Barca to open the gap even further if they beat Vallecano later.

Ruben Alcaraz has just smashed the bar...Real Madrid fortunate to not be behind.

Goals don't come much luckier than that. Vinicius' shanked his shot, probably on its way out for a throw in, but it hits a Vallodolid defender and finds the corner. Real Madrid 1-0 Vallodolid.

Barca one up in Valldolid. Alba set free down the left, cuts it back to Suarez who slices a finish a little but makes it 1-0.

Pozo equalises with a very accurate shot from outside the box. 1-1.

Been watching on my other screen. Good for Rayo. A bit disappointed Advincula's role resembles more of a CB in this, but that really shows how balanced he is. He can burst forward and also form a wall.

As for Barca, maybe I'm just unlucky in the games I choose to see but I haven't seen a single good performance from them so far this season.

Alba in Advincula's pocket all game, and to think Lucho wasn't wanted at Tigres :rofl:

Barca equalise! Pique with the header down and Dembele with a drilled finish low in to the corner. 2-2.

Gutting for Rayo, they played the game of their lives.

Dembele is quite clutch it has to be said. Always shows up in the ideal moments.

I missed the first 20 minutes, my cousin sent me a link and decided to put it on my second screen.

He's being deployed as defensive full back here. You shouldn't expect him to burst forward when he's playing closer to a CB role than an offensive one.

Wow, that's gutting for Rayo. Demoralization during the equalizer perhaps?

How Barça managed to win that game against Rayo I will never know but I do know how these games are won by teams like Barcelona which is no mysetery.  The most expensive part of a team piece are the elements that put it in the back of the net with very little scope to do it in and that's what we had at Vallecas tonight.

Barcelona deserved NOTHING out of that game!  Rafinha looked like an amateur in the first half and Dembélé although equalising, was absolutely dismal.  I honestly wanted Rayo to get the victory because it wasn't one of those games where the minnow defends and gets a lucky break with weirdos saying they deserved it. No, in this case Rayo Vallecano played the much better football and deserved the three points.

A very lucky victory for Barcelona and one that could be very telling considering that this is Messi's third game out and not too long until he returns.

He missed the part where Advincula went missing and Alba assisted Suárez for the first goal.  xD

I did miss the first goal, but in my opinion he had a good but very different game than usual. He played more of a CB and if he really did go missing in the first goal, then he made up for it afterwards.

Leganes holding Atleti to a draw. Wow. It's like La Liga and Premier League have swapped competitiveness for one season.

Had Barcelona lost like they should've today, it would've really put the cat amongst the pigeons.  Alavés could've gone top for starters tomorrow.

He wasn't all that good today.  Rayo were a team first and foremost today but if one player was above the rest it was Pozo.

Never said he was the man of the match. Just saying he had a good game.

What a goal by Betis. From keeper to striker, in 3 passes and about 5 seconds.
