LaLiga Matchday 30 Recap: There's a wind of change blowing around Camp Nou

LaLiga returned after the international break primed for the final stretch of the season and we are here to bring you the best of the action from Matchday 30. Join hosts Ruairidh Barlow (@RuriBarlow) and Matt Clark (@MattClark_08) as they discuss some big games at both the top and the bottom.


We start with a controversial match at Balaídos as Real Madrid needed penalties to return to winning ways and extend their lead at the top. The red-and-white half of Madrid also won and while the scoreline looked emphatic, it was anything but on an emotional night for Diego Simeone. Then the Sunday night partidazo saw Barcelona go second for the first time this season at the expense of Sevilla, who fell to 4th. 


We stay at Camp Nou to end Part 1 with a special focus on the historic Women’s Champions League match. Diana Kristinne (@DianaKristinne) was there to witness the spectacle live and reflects on her experience.


Into the second half and we focus on the bottom of the table. Mallorca changed coaches since their last match, so we dialled up Paul McGarraghy (@PaulMcGarraghy) to give us the lowdown on Javier Aguirre’s return to the Spanish top-flight. Elsewhere, there was another huge win for Levante as they refuse to give up on survival, while Granada showed similar fighting spirit to comeback against Rayo. 


After rounding off the matches, we select our MVP candidates in a jazzy and jovial jaunt. All the Js. You can vote for the winner as always via Twitter on Monday. Ruairidh closes the show with his moment of the weekend, brought to you by Onda Cero.
