La Liga Matchday 10 Review

By  Umair Asif - 31 October 2016

We are finally back to the basics in La Liga where Matchday 10 saw Los Blancos climb to the top followed by the Catalans.  The top of La Liga is once again hijacked by Real Madrid and Barcelona, whereas Atletico Madrid and Sevilla are 3rd and 4th respectively. However, the excitement is still the same and the competition remains intense.

Real Madrid registered another convincing win to announce their supremacy while Barcelona also managed to score a win. Atletico Madrid regrouped after a shocking defeat last week at the hands of Sevilla, and destroyed Malaga by 4 goals to 2. Sevilla, on the other hand, had a great chance to keep things tight at the top but were held by Sporting for a draw.

Villarreal lost focus against Eibar that resulted not just in a loss, but also the opportunity to level on points with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid is gone. Espanyol and Real Sociedad secured crucial away wins that will prove pivotal in keeping them away from the relegation zone. With the tie between Deportivo and Valencia scheduled for later in the evening, La Liga Matchday 10 added another exciting week in this season’s tally.

Pick of the Matches

Las Palmas 3-3 Celta Vigo

The two sides with variant positions met each other this weekend and delivered an exceptionally brilliant performance. The 6-goal thriller ended in no one’s favor and both teams had to settle for a point each, but what an overwhelming performance it was from the two teams. It was an extremely crucial tie for both the teams but Celta Vigo proved to be the standout side. The team was away from home and scoring 3 goals is simply brilliant. All in all, this goal fest was a treat to watch not just for the fans present in the stadium but also for those watching the live broadcast.

Team of the Round 

Real Madrid

Real Madrid was up against Alaves, a side that has already stunned Barça and Atletico Madrid this season. It was predicted by many pundits that a trip to Alaves won’t be an easy one for Real Madrid but undoubtedly, Real Madrid delivered a solid performance. They were not just able to secure three points but demolished their opponents. Simply a world-class performance form Galacticos.
