Topic: 3rd round - La Liga round up
Valencia is on top of the La Liga after 3 round of games. The team that was awful last season now is playing a really nice style. This week the managed to beat Osasuna 1:0 after Mata goal in 84'. Maybe it was lucky but after a game in UEFA Cup this win is quite good result, and shows that Los Che are strong this year.
It was also a good weekend for other big teams in Spain. Barcelona finally got back from bottom beating Sporting Gijon 6:1. Messi scored twice. Eto'o, Iniesta and Xavi added their goals and Jorge Garcia gave the sixth with an own goal. Impressive win for Catalans.
Also Real Madrid did their job against Racing. It is always hard to play in Santander but this time de la Red an van Nistelrooy made it quite easy for Galacticos. It's good to see de la Red playing well after he was given a chance to start.
Second team from Madrid - Atletico showed a great form in beating Recreativo 4:0. Sinama-Pongolle scored twice and Maniche with Aguera added next two goals. Atletico looks really strong this season.
I also need to mention the Sevilla derby. I really like both teams from this city, but last weekend their game was really bad. A boring 0:0 draw.
Don't forget that the next round will be played on Wednesday.
