LaLiga Matchday 9 Recap: Basque Brilliance as La Real Lead the Way
Season 5, Ep. 11
LaLiga Matchday 9 was another adulterated version with just six matches taking place over the weekend, but that just means the analysis was all the more detailed. Join hosts Matt Clark (@MattClark_08) and Ruairidh Barlow (@RuriBarlow) as they break it down.Starting with the Sunday night partidazo, Barcelona got a much needed win over Valencia and despite Ansu Fati, there are still reasons for pessimism. Following that, we speak to Thom Harris (@ThomHarris_) about Villarreal's inability to put wins together - with or without Gerard Moreno's brilliance.In the second half of the pod, admiring glances are cast towards our Basque league leaders (!), our Basque-led surprise of the season and for balance, ask a little more of Julen Lopetegui's Sevilla. Paco Polit (@pacopolitENG) is on hand to detail a non-descript start for new managers Javi Pereira and Quique Sánchez Flores and finally, we discuss our MVP picks. Moments of the week also well worth waiting for.
