Barcelona 8 Huesca 2
So, you’ve just been promoted to Spain’s top flight for the first time in your history, you’ve won your first league game and you’ve drawn your second and your feeling pretty pleased with yourself.
Next up you travel to Barcelona for you first ever league visit and life is pretty rosy….. Until 16 minutes in that is.
La Liga’s highest-scoring encounter so far this season was an attacking masterclass from the side who are arguably the best at it in the world.
However, it did not start so well for Barcelona as minnows Huesca stunned European football by striking in the third minute thanks to Cucho Hernandez.
By halftime though Barcelona was 3-2 up inspired as they were by the mercurial Lionel Messi who had equalised in the 16th minute for the home side.
3-2 at halftime was still a creditable score-line for minnows Huesca but was as good as it got for the club from the Aragon region of Spain as a further five goals followed for the home side in the second half.
The only big surprise was Messi failing to net a hattrick, but the game proved a stark warning for Huesca that La Liga is no picnic.
Leganes 2 Barcelona 1
It is hardly a surprise that Barcelona feature again but this time not for the right reasons.
The 25-time La Liga champions headed to Leganes’ small home ground Estadio Municipal de Butarque after a disappointing home draw against last seasons surprise package and head coach Ernesto Valverde needed a result.
Leganes looked on paper like a walk in the park for Messi and co but quite the opposite ensued.
Despite going 1-0 up thanks to a Philippe Coutinho goal, Barcelona looked susceptible all game and was shell-shocked when in the second half, Leganes struck twice in the space of a minute to take a 2-1 lead.
There it stayed as the home sides dogged defence repelled the constant Barce attacks for an equaliser to cause the biggest upset of the season so far.
Rayo Vallecano 1 Sevilla 4
It is the opening day of the season and big things are expected of Sevilla this season.
Real Madrid has been weakened by the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona is starting to become an aging team.
This could be the Sevilla’s year, but they need to lay down a marker against the newly promoted Rayo Vallecano.
And boy did they do it.
Despite the stats suggesting the game was closer than it was, it was Sevilla’s killer instinct in front of goal that impressed and saw them race into a 4-0 lead.
An 85th minute Rayo penalty was nothing more than a consolation and Sevilla let the rest of La Loga know that they mean business.
