1. Messi to the rescue
The best version of the best soccer player on the planet is back. The player who holds a Barcelona with doubts, author of a triplet with both a penalty and two with trailed fouls of the biggest specialist with the ball stopped. Easier than penalty kicks. He sentenced a Celta de Vigo who tried to pull pride to leave the relegation zone at the premiere of Oscar Garcia. "Messi is uncontrollable, without him it would have been very different," he said. It is the feeling that everyone has left. Even to Barcelona.
2. Real Madrid de Zidane already carbureted
He unleashed the best of his images in Ipurua, imposing, full of authority. He put on the work overall that a team like Eibar demands in his stadium to master all facets of the game, shine in offensive phase with the best Hazard to date and extend his defensive firmness. Thibaut Courtois is on track record with five games without fitting. Zinedine Zidane has hit the key with his commitment to Fede Valverde, which has greatly increased the physique of Real Madrid, and triumphed with the management of its staff. At the stellar moment of Rodrygo he left the Brazilian without minutes to give prominence to those in the shadow. Lucas Vazquez shone and Luka Modric found his level again.
3. Atletico traces doubts
Grabbed to a Vitolo who was key for the comeback to Espanyol and to the scoring moment of Alvaro Morata, six consecutive games scoring, Atletico de Madrid met again with the victory and fled from the crisis he was headed for when Sergi Darder scored the first in the Wanda Metropolitano. Correa's first goal of the season changed course before Morata extended his sweet moment. He had not won the 'Cholo' Simeone team since October 26. He is back at a point of his head over his two-day pothole tie and the debacle in Germany in the Champions League.
4. De Jong kept it for the appointed day
The fame of scorer with which he arrived at Seville was in question because of his lack of success at the start of the season. The goal was reserved for deciding the match indicated in red by Betis and Sevilla. Also in the Benito Villamarin stadium. His lash broke the equality of the party, dyed the city of Seville white and made Julen Lopetegui the great winner. Direct hit to the eternal rival and with his team to a single point of the leadership. It is enshrined as the best visitor of LaLiga Santander.
5. Bordalas attacks Arrasate
It is not normal to hear statements like those of Jose Bordalas at the conclusion of the goalless draw between Getafe and Osasuna. "Arrasate is a fuss and I tell him in the face." On the eve of the duel, the coach of the rojillo team had claimed that in the Alfonso Perez Coliseum football was barely played. And Bordalas exploded, with the added anger of having crashed into a wall in a match that ended without goals and helplessness, tired of being singled out as an expert of the other football, of betting on hardness. "It is having little shame to attribute to us what they do." The Getafe was offensive and his coach ran out of patience. EFE
