  1. Christopher Harris says:

    So much for Gareth Bale being not fit enough to play for Wales mid-week. He looked on top form today until he twisted his knee.

  2. Ivan says:

    I like Barca but they had no business winning this game; shocking defending and disallowed goal for Sevilla for god knows what.

    Real Madrid: unimpressive so far; Villareal just tied the game at 2…Bale scored a nice goal, right time right place…20 mins left…good games in both the Primera and the Premier League today.
