A Look Ahead to Week Two

After a brief break in the action, La Liga resumes Saturday with a few intriguing fixtures. Getafe will look for a statement win versus FC Barcelona if they care to establish themselves as a contender for the top 6 after an impressive win on the road at Racing Santander. The aforementioned Racing will travel to Madrid to face Atletico, who try to rebound after an embarrassing loss on the road at Malaga. Villarreal and Sevilla, two teams who will without question be competing for the top four come May, will both look to record their first wins of this young season on home turf. The city of Barcelona will play host to this weeks most fascinating contest, however, where Espanyol will play host to Real Madrid. Have Madrid hammered out their lapses from the week before? How will the emotions from Espanyol, in their first league match since the untimely death of captain Jarque, affect the crowd and the team? I foresee an early lead for the Catalonian club but Madrid's power will, inevitably, earn Los Blancos a valuable away point.

Week 2 predictions:

Getafe 0- Barcleona 2
Atletico Madrid 2- Racing Santander 0

Espanyol 1- Real Madrid 1

Sevilla FC 2- Real Zaragoza 0

Villarreal 3- Mallorca 0

Sporting Gijon 0- Almeria 1

Deportivo La Coruna 2- Malaga 1

Tenerife 0- Osasuna 0

Valladolid 1- Valencia 3

Xerez 0- Athletic Bilbao- 1
