Topic: 5. round round up
It was an interesting weekend in Barcelona. The derby match was really interesting, but as it is in soccer the referee had to be the main actor of the night. Barcelona got their 3 points, but they will try to forget this night ASAP.
I'm really impressed with the way Valencia is playing under coach Unai. This weekend they showed no mercy to the Deportivo La Coruna site. Goals from Mata, Villa (2) and Joaquin showed that Los Che are really in top form, and Villa is the main candidate for the top scorers prise.
It was also a good weekend for the other title contender and the top scorer candidate. Giusseppe Rossi came back after his injury and scored the decisive goal in the Sporting Gijon - Villareal game.
Current champions Real Madrid, had a really hard game in Sevilla, where they got the three points thanks to Ruun van Nistelrooy goal in the last minute of the game.
I'm also impressed by UD Almeria. This team without really big stars managed to gain 10 points and is now on the 6th position in the table. Really impressive.
I though that Racing Santander would be fighting for the UEFA Cup qualification, and it seems that Almeria will take their place, as Racing is really underachieving in last games. Loosing 1:2 against Mallorka was another poor result for this site.
After 5 round of La Liga definitely Valencia with David Villa are the biggest stars of the league and Racing Santander is the biggest disappointment.
