A Better Lens at Spanish Football


Eyebrows were raised when the Valencia hierarchy surprisingly dismissed Pizzi at the end of last season; the Argentine had done a solid, if not spectacular job after stepping into the Mestalla hot seat in December. Consequently leading the out-of-form side to a modest eighth-place finish. It was the first time in 16 years that the club had failed to qualify for European competition. The summer was a strangely exciting one for the club, backed by Singaporean businessman Peter Lim and […]

The Rojiblancos will return to Champions League football come Wednesday and Diego Simeone will be very anxious to get his side back to winning ways in Europe.

  The much criticized and once prolific Spanish number “9″ finally made his Italian Serie A debut for the Rossoneri on Tuesday against Empoli. AC Milan would suffer a massive set back inside the first 21 minutes of the match in Tuscany. Goals by Lorenzo Tonelli and Manuel Pucciarelli had put Empoli ahead 2-0. “Il Diavolo” would go into halftime with a rather important lifeline coming from a player many have thought to be “beyond damaged goods.” Fernando Torres went […]

  Atletico Madrid sent out a signal of intent to their two biggest rivals in Spain and indeed the rest of Europe, after defeating Real Madrid 1-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu. It was the third meeting between the two clubs this season already and the seventh meeting in 2014, but both sides were merely sparring for the first ten minutes.

    Real Madrid take on Atletico Madrid on Saturday night in what will be the third meeting between the two clubs this season already, and the seventh meeting in 2014.
