LaLiga Matchday 8 Recap: A weekend of surprises and Atlético Madrid

LaLiga continues to bring the drama and the emotion to your footballing weekend. After a busy few weeks, hosts Matt Clark (@MattClark_08) and Sam Leveridge (@samleveridge) cast their eyes over the surprise-filled round. 

The problems continue to mount for Barcelona as they suffered another defeat at the Wanda Metropolitano. Sam was there to witness it, while our resident Barça fan Román De Arquer (@Aeroslavee) shares his thoughts on the situation. 

We also hear from Espanyol expert Geoff Gillingham (@GeoffGillingham) on the shock of the round as Los Pericos handed Real Madrid their first league defeat in nine months. 

Sam and Matt then discuss the rest of the action, including the sacking of Levante coach Paco López, as teams at the top slipped up while others showed signs of life. We pick out the other clubs and coaches most in danger of the chop, and end with the regular staples of MVP and moments of the week.
