This weekend, I must say I learned quite a bit about La Liga for this season. Let me give you a glimpse of my conclusions:
First—Sevilla are fighters. A goal and man down at half usually doesn't provide a good result for said team. Sevilla pushed the point to never think a game is over until it is by beating Deportivo la Coruna 3-1.
Second—Valencia and Villarreal are pretty much even. I had been thinking so, but a entertaining 3-3 draw makes it pretty much a fact.
Third—Athletico Madrid are still inconsistent. After starting the season as lively as Barcelona, they have been unable to keep the performances up. I see no Champion's League for them next season.
Fourth—Real Madrid may be able to make a title push. Arjen Robben is starting to look like joining the likes of C. Ronaldo, Messi, and Ribery in the list of very influential wingers. A Madrid fan can only hope he can keep this up. (I know I am!)
Last—Barcelona will definitely make a comeback hard for Madrid. After two late goals, Barca downed yet another team with a 3-2 result. Proving that when a defense contains their flair, they can play rough and dog it out. It hurts me to say this (and I might go wash my mouth out with soap, or my hands since I'm typing), but Barcelona is the best team in Europe.
