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 […]
