LaLiga Matchday 3 Review: From Rubi to diamonds
Join Matt Clark (@MattClark_08) and Román De Arquer (@Aeroslavee) to review a thrilling third round in LaLiga.
We begin with an update on the scandal rocking Spanish football and discuss the future of now-suspended President Luis Rubiales.
Happily, there was a lot of football to enjoy, with 27 goals in eight games.
There were partidazos galore on Sunday, with young talent shining bright on an otherwise dark week for Spanish football.
Lamine Yamal is only 16 but he is already being decisive for Barça, who ended up winning a thriller at La Cerámica, a game which also featured another Ferran Torres cameo.
At San Mamés there were six goals and a remontada, as Athletic came from 2-0 down to beat Betis comfortably in the end. Isco is looking sharp and almost back to his best, but it was the Williams brothers who stole the show, albeit with some controversy.
Real Madrid are still top of the pile and Jude Bellingham is still the main man. We discuss how freakishly good he is to already be running things for Carlo Ancelotti. But is it actually a concern that they are already so dependent on him?
In Part Two we round up the remaining games, including an impressive Girona and a goalfest in Granada.
Osasuna shook off their Conference League disappointment to beat Valencia at Mestalla thanks to a 95th-minute overhead kick, which left Los Che feeling blue.
