La Liga: Barca scrape home, Atletico Madrid romp past Rayo

Aug 26 2013, 6:06am CDT | by IANS

Madrid, Aug 26 (IANS) FC Barcelona remain top of the Spanish Primera Liga after a 1-0 win against Malaga while Atletico Madrid moved into second place with a 5-0 drubbing of Rayo Vallecano.

Madrid, Aug 26 — FC Barcelona remain top of the Spanish Primera Liga after a 1-0 win against Malaga while Atletico Madrid moved into second place with a 5-0 drubbing of Rayo Vallecano.

Adriano's goal on the stroke of halftime was enough to give Barca a win on a difficult night in the La Rosaleda Stadium Sunday, reports Xinhua.

Barca coach Tata Martino introduced made changes to his side, such as Alex Song for Sergio Busquets, Adriano for Dani Alves and Cesc Fabregas for the injured Lionel Messi, but there was no starting place for Neymar, who again began the match on the bench.

Adriano once again showed his talent as a player to score excellent goals on the stroke of halftime with a shot from outside of the Malaga penalty area.

Meanwhile the second half saw both sides hit the woodwork and Barca keeper, Victor Valdes make a fine save from Malaga's Seba Fernandez in the last minute of the game as the home side worked hard to take a point against a Barca side which lacked spark without Messi and with Neymar coming into the game after more than an hour.

Atletico showed they can again challenge for a top four position as Diego Simeone' s side warmed up for the return leg of the Spanish Supercup with a 5-0 thrashing of Rayo.

The loss of Radamel Falcao to Monaco doesn't appear to have harmed Atletico at all, in fact they looked a more compact side.

Raul Garcia opened the scoring after six minutes and the game was virtually over as a contest after 34 minutes, but Diego Costa and Arda Turan had added two more goals to complete the rout.

Meanwhile Levante, who last week lost 0-7 to Barca, recovered to draw 0-0 to Sevilla in a game that will not live long in the memory of those who watched it.

Real Madrid travel to Granada to play Monday night.

Why Koke Will Be Atletico Madrid's X-Factor in La Liga This Season

Sep 18 2014 4:59am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

To single out one of Diego Simeone's loyal Atletico Madrid soldiers feels alarmingly wrong. In doing so, there's a sense that you're committing sacrilege, that you're ignoring the collective beauty of the robust Atleti machine. Whereas Barcelona are majestic and Real Madrid are explosive, Simeone's men engage in football's equivalent of trench warfare, slugging it out in an almost bruta ...

Barcelona Continue La Masia Focus in Win over Apoel

Sep 17 2014 4:22pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It has been an interesting start to the season for Barcelona. The new Luis Enrique era is in full blossom and things are starting to come together for La Blaugrana. The Catalans have yet to concede a goal in the new campaign and the defense looks like it has new life. Though the overall play is not yet electrifying, the players are getting the job done. Somewhat surprisingly, Enrique has also put a renewed heavy focus on La Masia by giving young stars chances in the early season. The likes o ...

In international football, few topics are more regularly discussed than Spain's long-running striker quandary.  For so long the side's most obvious flaw, La Roja's lack of a potent No. 9 has been a reminder that no outfit is flawless, an issue that has somewhat quelled the potential threat of a team perpetually rolling out the finest midfield in the game.  Indeed, despite having dominated the global stage between 2008 and 2012, the side Vicente del Bosque in ...

Analysing How Ivan Rakitic Will Boost Barcelona and Lionel Messi This Season

Aug 25 2014 7:20am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Ivan Rakitic was brought to Barcelona to bolster a flagging core, and early evidence suggests he's going to go above and beyond that. The Croatia star was the key piece of Sevilla's midfield as they won the Europa League last season, and it earned him a switch to the Nou Camp. Rakitic is the replacement for Xavi in the side, with manager Luis Enrique set to use the veteran Spanish midfielder sparingly as the season progresses. He plays ahead of ancho ...

Barcelona vs. Elche: Final score 3-0, Messi's brace leads Blaugrana over Los Franjiverdes

Aug 24 2014 3:51pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Neither Javier Mascherano's red card or a black cat invading the pitch could stop Barca from winning their season opener. Despite going down a man at the end of the first half, Barcelona were able to see off Elche 3-0 behind a brace from Lionel Messi and 18-year-old debutante Munir El Haddadi's first career La Liga goal. The opening 20 minutes at the Camp Nou was very quiet, with the exception of a furry little pitch i ...

Lionel Messi Poised to Hit New Heights Under Luis Enrique at Barcelona

Aug 20 2014 8:18am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Relaxed, refreshed and reinvigorated, Lionel Messi showed enough sharpness in the pre-season Gamper Trophy match against FC Leon to suggest that, after a less-than-satisfactory season under Tata Martino, it will probably be business as usual at the Camp Nou for the Argentina superstar this season. Much has been said after his, and his country’s, performance during the World Cup in Brazil. More of that later, but it’s worth noting that despite critici ...
