Week 2 in review
Barcelona moved top of La Liga after making it 2 wins out of 2 with an extremely impressive 6-1 hammering of Huesca. The Catalan club, who needed a late late penalty winner in the opening weekend, had no such troubles this time out against a Huesca side who also fell heavily in a 4-1 defeat away at Granada last weekend. Messi was again on the scoresheet, claiming a hat-trick including another penalty in the comfortable win, while Dembélé and Piqué also found the net. Second spot at present currently goes to Sevilla, with a first half goal from Suso enough to beat Granada 1-0. The Sevillian side have find themselves above Valencia, who have also won both games so far, courtesy of their goal difference, having yet to concede a goal this season following their 3-0 victory on the opening weekend.
The biggest shock came at the Bernabéu, where current holders Real Madrid fell to a surprise 1-0 defeat against Cadiz. Los Blanco weren’t helped by the dismissal of Sergio Ramos just after the hour mark, and former Real Madrid, Manchester City and Valencia striker Álvaro Negredo dealt the killer blow in the final minute of normal time, to hand the newly promoted side a memorable victory. At the foot of the table, Alavés, Celta Vigo and Real Betis all failed to pick up a point for the second week running, losing out to Athletic Bilbao, Levante and Elche respectively.Share this:
