Jornada 11: Saturday, Sunday
(Messi 38.5, Dani Alves 21, Adriano 19.5)
Exactly as was predicted, Barcelona eased up to 2nd. The tinkering Pep was the scourge of my team this week though as Iniesta and Fabregas never got on the pitch. Should have known with CL coming up this week. Messi and Adriano always play, whatever the situation. Goal scoring Cuenca needs adding to the game.
Real Sociedad 0-1 Real Madrid
Underwhelming display from Real. Those who stumped up the 25 pts for Higuain will have been a bit disappointed with his 13 pt return. Ronaldo only got 7. Only Fabio Coentrao did anything exceptional with 13pt score from 3.54 value.
Top performance: Cassilas: 22, Coentrao: 13.5 (bv), Higuain: 13
Valencia 3-1 Getafe
(Feghouli 19 pts, Arduriz 14.5 - Castro 9pts)
As predicted, a straight forward home win for Valencia. Not much to get excited about in this game apart from the surprise brace from Sofiane Feghouli from a value of 3.35.
Villarreal 2-0 Rayo Vallecano
(Valero 18.5, Zapata, 11pts, Bruno 10pts)
A much needed win for Villarreal, midfielders Valero and Bruno making up for the striker deficit.
Osasuna 2-0 Levante
(Alvaro Cejudo 15.5pts, Nino 15pts, Andres 12 pts)
Surprise result of the weekend, Levante finally giving up first place in the table. The awesome Alvaro Cejudo with a bizarre game winning performance which somehow included a sending off.
Malaga 2-1 Espanyol
(Rondon 20pts, Duda 9.5 pts, Apono 7pts - Alvaro 10.5pts)
Malaga knicked 6th spot away from Espanyol, largely thanks to a strong show from Rondon, scoring his first goal of the season. Solid all round from Malga without being too exciting. Lots of 9 pt performances.
Sporting Gijon 1-1 Atletico Bilbao
Bilic 11.5pts, Barral 10.5pts - Susaeta 7.5pts)
Atletico 3-1 Zaragoza
(Adrian 20.5 pts, Dominguez 13.5 pts - Postiga 16pts)
Diego is starting to create. Postiga got a notable 16.
Racing Santander 1-0 Real Betis
(Tono 20pts, Cisma 10.5 pts - Pereira 10.5, Benat 10)
The Sevillians are crashing and burning. Santander; an invaluable win, largely down to magical Tono in between the sticks. Betis' midfielder Benat still keeps turning in excellent point scoring performances.
