Barcelona destroyed Atlético Madrid. 3-0 after 8 min. 5-1 after 28 min. Ended 6-1 although it could have been 12-1 without many surprises.
Get this : Even Thierry Henry looked fabulous when he came on as a sub in the 2nd half when he scored a great goal.
Villareal looked and played tired for 60 odd minutes. But overcame a 1st half goal by Betis within a minute in which they scored twice. 2-1.
Real Madrid failed to breakdown a very focussed and enterprising Espanyol to end the day. In two weeks Atlético Madrid X Real Madrid.
National team return this weekend and mid-week next week.
