A look at the table after Match 5


#1


#2

What’s most surprising?


#3

Betis actually being a decent team. There’s always hype about their transfers, but it’s always gone back to how the club is run. I think Setien has been the right manager for them, but we’ll see how the season progresses. I’m hoping we’ll be seeing some interesting derbies for once.


#4

Levante being led by former Sevilla Atletico ace Ivi Lopez lol, managed a draw against (an albeit 2nd string) Real Madrid at the Bernabau and thrashing Real Sociedad 3-0 last night, interesting to see if their run continues. Eibar also seems to coming back down to earth.


#5

That Bardhi guy of Levante has scored 2 free kicks in 5 matches. That’s a bit crazy for a new guy in La Liga. Another volley goal of his vs. Valencia, making it 3 in 5 matches.


#6

Good thing we will play them only on 7th January 2018, 2 matches before the end of the first round of the season. By then, they will come down to earth a bit and it should be a good game, where we will beat them of course.

I wouldn’t want to play Betis now after all this RM thing and all that… plus Setien can go all guns blazing and who knows, might disappoint us.


#7

Real Madrid being 8th is hilarious. I hope this means a more competitive la liga. We are 5 points ahead of them and we could get a chance of top spot if we win at atletico!


#8

Betis proved my faith in Levante to be misplaced by thrashing them 4-0, a lot of teams are unsteady this season with villarreal and eibar losing by 4 goals and las palmas losing at home to leganes. This season could be very interesting indeed
