Barca continued with their excellent start to the season with 4-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano. Usually a 4-0 victory would be described as a thrashing. But not this one. This was even for most of the parts, the difference was our strikers were able to cash on the chances at the correct time. The match was to an extend an exhibition of how fragile our defense was, it was understandable as there were some changes which exposed them a bit.

Unsurprisingly Barcelona and Real Madrid dominated Spanish football in 2012. Barca accumulated over 100 points, whilst Real Madrid were ten points behind their bitter rivals. Interestingly during 2012 Valencia and Rayo Vallecano picked up the same number of points as each other, however Valencia drew 10 of their games, Vallecano drew just one a goalless game with Sevilla in September.
Liverpool have joined the race to sign Swansea City star striker Michu, according to the Mirror. The report states Reds manager Brendan Rodgers will move for the 26-year-old if he fails to sign Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge. Michu signed for the Swans in the summer from La Liga club Rayo Vallecano, and has since impressed hugely.
Now here's a thing. The supporters of Real Madrid jeered Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale during a 5-0 defeat of Rayo Vallecano. Carlo Ancelotti then pleaded with the Real Madrid fans to unite with the players.

After the 10 goal thriller against Sevilla in the midweek action, Real Madrid will be looking to maintain the momentum going with a win over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday. Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that he will be making changes to the starting line-up that performed well in the 7-3 win. Even though Ancelotti would have been pleased with the attacking performance of his team, he will certainly not feel the same about the defensive side after having conceded three goals at home.
Having already scored, Sergio Ramos was booked twice in the space of 60 seconds (Jordan Ayew would be so proud!) to pick up the 17th red card of his entire career the 11th of his Real Madrid career (a club record) against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday, thus leaving him one single sending-off from equaling the all-time Spanish league record at the age of 26.
Sergio Ramos scored in the 12th minute of Real Madrid's 2-0 win against Rayo Vallecano. He then proceeded to get booked twice in under 60 seconds, getting sent off in the 19th minute. That marked Ramos' club-record 17th red card of his career, one shy of the Spanish league record.
Ramos' first yellow of the match was for a light shove to the chest of Rayo striker Leo (who reacted by hitting the ground a covering his face).

The UEFA Champion League knockout rounds kick off on Tuesday with the tastiest match up of the Round of 16 as FC Barcelona travels to England to take on Manchester City.

El Barcelona de Kenti Robles continÃºa intratable, al ligar un aÃ±o entero sin conocer la derrota y al ser el lÃder de la primer divisiÃ³n espaÃ±ola, al ganar 5 de 5, habiendo anotado 25 goles y sin haber recibido aÃºn.

Last season, Atletico Madrid's striker Diego Costa mustered more yellow cards (12) than goals (10).
