LaLiga Matchday 38 Recap: Granada pay the penalty

They think it's all over... It is now! LaLiga came to a dramatic conclusion as the relegation battle took centre stage on Matchday 38. Join hosts Matt Clark (@MattClark08) and Ruairidh Barlow (@RuriBarlow) as they pick through the debris.


There's no other place to start than the shock relegation of Granada. Just a season after making it to the Europa League quarter-finals against Manchester United, Granada finish 18th and descend to Segunda. That contrasts to the firefighting job done at Cádiz by Sergio González and Javier Aguirre in Mallorca. We get the thoughts of Alex Fitzpatrick (@MallorcaAlex100) on Mallorca's survival.


In the second half of the show we hear the gritty detail from Beñat Gutiérrez (@beinatguti) on the goings on at Athletic Club, including the possible departure of Marcelino. There are also closing notes on Unai Emery and Xavi Hernández as we wrap up the any other business section of the Matchday.


Finally, we dig into the MVP section for the last time in the 2021/22 season and pick our moments of the week.
