La Liga Jornada 34 Review: Málaga Denied of a Shock Victory at Mallorca

Juan Ramón López Muñiz brought Málaga into La Liga in 2008 after a two-year hiatus in the second division.  Throughout his playing career, he played on teams constantly scrambling either to stay in La Liga or to be promoted to the first division.  He knows the mentality that a team […]

La Liga Jornada 33 Review: Tenerife Rises to Within One Point of Relegation Salvation

“NINO, NINO, NINO!” chanted Los Chicharreros in the Estadio Heliodoro Rodríguez López.  When shouted aloud, the chant sounded like an onrushing ambulance through a traffic-jammed street, and for Getafe, who fell victim to the brilliance of Nino, they needed the assistance of EMT workers. After a 0-0 draw at home […]

La Liga Preview and US TV Listings for Jornada 32: Apr. 13 – Apr. 15

La Liga Jornada 31 Review: Xavi’s Foresight and Pep Guardiola’s Tactics Lead Barcelona Over Real Madrid in El Clásico

Throughout Barcelona’s two-year run of groundbreaking excellence, Josep Guardiola i Sala role as a tactician tended to be undervalued.  He reinstituted the “Total Football” concept that Johan Cruyff, Guardiola’s former manager at FC Barcelona, instilled when he was a player and a manager at the club, and he changed the […]

La Liga Review: Has Barcelona Been Figured Out?

A ridiculous question with what should be a simple answer.  First, a cursory investigation.  Is Barcelona on top of the standings in La Liga?  Yes.  Has Barcelona obtained sixty-one points from twenty-four matches, one more point than it had at the same point last season?  Check.  Does Barcelona have the […]

La Liga Preview and US TV Listings for Jornada 24: Feb. 27 and Feb. 28

La Liga Preview and US TV Listings for Jornada 23: Feb. 20 – Feb. 22

The obvious surprising result of the previous round was Atlético Madrid’s 2-1 victory over Barcelona to hand the Catalunyan champions their first loss in La Liga this season.  If analyzed deeper, however, Barça’s defeat at the hands of Los Colchoneros becomes less of a shocker. Historically, Atleti had a respectable […]

La Liga Preview and US TV Listings for Jornada 22: Feb. 13 and Feb. 14

This weekend, the focus will be on those teams who will play in European competition in the following midweek.  The question of domestic vs. European responsibilities remains an individual club decision, but for some teams, choices become more plentiful than others.

La Liga US TV Listings for Jornada 21: Feb. 6 and Feb. 7

La Liga US TV Listings for Jornada 20: Jan. 30 and Jan. 31

La Liga US TV Listings for Jornada 19: Jan. 23 and Jan. 24
