La Liga Round 20

31 Jan

Quick update on the rest of the leagues outside of the England, and first up is Spain’s La Liga. Madrid continued their impressive form, and bouyed by the Copa del Rey draw in the Nou Camp, they extended their lead at the top to 7 points with a win over Real Zaragoza (20th) who had the cheek to take the lead. Villarreal (17th) held  Barcelona to a 0-0 draw. This was Madrid’s 5th consecutive league win whilst Barca have dropped 4 points in the same period. Elsewhere Valencia stayed 3rd after they drew 2-2 against 16th placed Racing. Levante are still clinging onto 4th spot despite losing 2-1 to Getafe.

In terms of Average Opposition Index, it’s still Cesc Fabregas leading the way, with a European high of 4.78. Needless to say, as Atletico Madrid were playing against 6th placed Osasuna, Falcao didn’t score. He continues to carry the Flat Track Bully tag with an average opponent per goal of 14.93. His Top 6 goals column continues to be empty.

Elsewhere, Ronaldo helped his quest for the Golden boot with another against bottom played Zaragoza. In third, Valencia were held to a 2-2 draw by 16th placed Racing.

Fernando Llorente was the big mover with a hat trick against 13th placed Rayo Vallecano. This damaged his average, but it’s still a respectable 9.80.
