La Liga kicked on a high note about 41 goals where scored & only 2 clean sheets were kept. Barcelona & Real Madrid both won while Atleti conceded a late equaliser to a Manu strike. Sampoli continues to use his 3-5-2 system as they concede tons of goals however they managed to win.
New Faces That impressed?
Marco Asenso – Real Madrid
Scored a delightful chip on his league debut with Real Madrid as the task becomes extremely hard for James Rodriguez or Isco to make the Real Madrid XI.
Kevin Prince Boateng – Las Palmas
The Prince of Ghana has crowned off his achievements by becoming the 6th player to score in four different leagues. A stunning header from Prince sparked Las Palmas as they went on & won the game.
Luciano Vietto – Sevilla
Last season he only netted one goal for Atletico Madrid in La Liga however last weekend he scored two goals in the space of 45 minutes for Sevilla as Sampoli’s man won 6-4. On both of the goals he scored he showed predatory instincts.
Franco Vazquez – Sevilla
Both the season started I said Franco was going to be La Liga signing of the summer alongside Pato, and based on the 1st game my statement lookd accurate. He scores Sevilla’s 4th goal as Sampoli’s men gave the Sevilla fans Entertainment.
Pablo Sarabia – Sevilla
Another player who impressed with his new team was arguably Sevilla’s best player as he was involved in 50% of all their goals (1 goal & 2 assists). He displayed some brilliant performances & has showen that he can Sevilla’s most important player.
Pablo Piatti – Espanyol
The Argentine looked very revived for Espanyol as he was involved in three of their goals. With the signings Espanyol made this summer they could end up in the Europa League if the team manages to settle.
