Real Madrid v Club Atletico de Madrid  - Supercopa: First Leg

  Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid drew 1-1 in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.

It was a scrappy affair, Atleti typically made life very difficult for Real. The first shot on target came from a tame effort by Mario Mandzukic, and a minute later the chance of the first-half fell to Saúl Ñíguez, as he […]

Many have speculated on which goalkeeper would start the match, with Thibault Courtois having returned from his multiple years on loan from Atletico Madrid and Peter Cech who was the long time veteran goalie for the blues. Chelsea supporters also have […]

    On Tuesday night, Real Madrid will look to lay the foundations to what could be trophy number two out of a possible six this season. The European Champions fresh from winning the UEFA Super Cup face Atletico Madrid in the first-leg of the Spanish Super Cup. The last time these two sides met was in the UEFA Champions League final in Lisbon, when Real Madrid came from a goal-down to win 4-1. But that game won’t have any […]

  Spain a couple of years ago many described as glorified Scotland (back when Rangers were still in SPL but that’s a different argument) in regards that there was two massive teams that won both the La Liga and the Copa del Rey consistently. Until two years ago when Atletico Madrid returned from their long and miserable exile from top flight football. Since Atletico Madrid won the Copa del Rey over their cross town rivals Real Madrid in 2013 there […]

      And so Atlético de Madrid won the league and how. It was an amazing achievement and VLL will talk all about it in the end of season awards but there was another huge achievement this season down in the south of Spain. Sevilla are no strangers to cup glory but the last few seasons have seen off the field drama make the headlines rather than actions on the pitch. Like many other La Liga club they have […]

  The season is drawing to a close, with only one round of fixtures left. This season for many La Liga watchers has been the best season in recent history. That being said, I felt it would be an appropriate time to pick my own best eleven from the league season.   Goalkeeper: Keylor Navas (Levante) Despite Levante having a -7 goal difference the Costa Rican has been in magnificent form amassing a superb 16 clean sheets. If it wasn’t […]
