Now La Liga is back, the games come thick and fast and after a thrilling two games each so far, the table had an odd look to it after surprises galore.
So, as game week three prepares to get underway, we have picked three matches you will not want to miss.
Getafe v Alaves
Perhaps not quite the show stopper tie you would have expected, but Getafe were last season’s surprise package ending the campaign in fifth.
So far, the relatively young club (founded in 1983) have struggled in their two games registering a draw and a defeat and all eyes will be on whether José Bordalás side can kick start their season and build upon last season.
Alaves represent a solid mid-table side and a stern test in a game that if Getafe have any designs on repeating last seasons heroics, they will expect to win.
Sevilla v Celta Vigo
It may be early days, but table-toppers Sevilla are certainly on an upward trend and may fancy themselves as possible title contenders if the usual suspects have something of a difficult campaign.
A disappointing sixth place last season will need to be banished by former Spain boss Julen Lopetegui and a home tie against Celta Vigo could be the perfect tonic to make it three from three.
Celta themselves only just avoided the drop last season and may look take this game with a pinch of salt knowing easier challenges lay ahead after already having collected a victory this season.
Villarreal v Real Madrid
On paper at least, this is the standout tie of the weekend despite the Yellow Submarine’s disappearance into the doldrums of mid-table last season.
Real Madrid are no longer the invincible force they once were with frustrations in the transfer market and unsettled players proving Zinedine Zidane has a far tougher challenge ahead of his second time around. After setting the bar so high during his first spell in charge, Zidane has plenty of work to do and after collecting a win and a draw from his sides opening two games, only victory will continue to appease restless fans and players as the pursuit of the title continues.
