La Liga Matchweek 4 Review: The Learning Points

By  Football Pulp - 20 September 2016

The goal fest in La Liga continues with another Matchweek wrapped. Matchweek 4 saw Barça bounce back from last week’s defeat to wipe out their opponents, while Atletico Madrid is back on the winning ways. La Liga Matchweek 4 kept the fans ticking with dazzling atmosphere, signifying the stature of the league. Well, if you missed the live action, you don’t have to worry as we have summarized all the action from La Liga Matchweek 4 for you:     

Athletic Bilbao 2 – 1 Valencia

The win served as a moment of comfort for Bilbao after struggling for three weeks. A close contest and a narrow win but all’s well that ends well. For Valencia, disappointment continued as they were unable to hold on to the lead and Bilbao came from behind to vanquish them.

Atletico Madrid 5 – 0 Sporting Gijon

N one could have predicted that Atletico Madrid, who was denied victory on last two occasions, could regroup to destroy a side that was enjoying a memorable start to the season. Sporting lost the way in the first half and Atletico did not allow them to settle.

Eibar 1 – 1 Sevilla

By dropping two points against Eibar, Sevilla also dropped their chances of contesting for the Spanish crown, and this was evident from the anger on the face of Sevilla’s boss. Eibar were defensively present and were pleased to secure a point against Sevilla.

Espanyol 0 – 2 Real Madrid

Espanyol once again lost to Madrid without putting up a competitive show and the win helped Real Madrid to equalize the record of most wins in a row, 16. However, that strike for Rodriguez is simply hard to ignore.

Las Palmas 1 – 0 Malaga

Malaga played brilliantly but was unable to find the back of the net, and Las Palmas played according to the plan. Anyhow, 3 points sealed and 3rd spot on the table; could we say a perfect result? 

Leganes 1 – 5 Barcelona

Barça is back on the winning ways in La Liga with MSN sealing all the three points for the Catalans with their impressive coordination. The three were able to register their names on the score sheet as well. 

Osasuna 0 – 0 Celta Vigo

As expected, a goalless draw between the two sides clearly depicts the type of play both sides have adopted this season.

Real Betis 2 – 2 Granada

This was an exciting match that saw both the sides playing attacking football and targeting the opponent’s goal every time with every attempt. Sadly, the match ended in a draw. However, a point a piece served well for both the sides.

Villarreal 2 – 1 Real Sociedad

A sensational strike from Sansone differentiates both the sides. Villarreal defeated Real Sociedad in a close contest. A miserable night for the visitors, Real Sociedad, who saw Jeseba Zaldua sent-off in the injury time but till then the game was realistically over.

With one fixture remaining in the week scheduled to take place tonight, we’ll see you next time; however, for now, Matchweek 5 is done and dusted.
