๐Ÿ“… This weekend in LaLiga

LaLiga enters Matchday 15 this weekend with a number of interesting clashes lined up. 

Before though we get into what the weekend holds, how about a recap from this past week?

Real Madrid went top of LaLiga Santander

It was a good weekend for Real Madrid, who earned a commanding 4-1 victory away at Granada.

That result, combined with Real Sociedad and Sevilla’s draws, saw Los Blancos climb to the summit of the standings with 30 points from their first 13 fixtures.

Benzema and Vinícius lead the goalscoring charts

A big factor behind Real Madrid’s success so far this season is the fact that they have LaLiga Santander’s top two scorers, with Karim Benzema on 10 goals and Vinícius on eight.

A Pichichi one-two looks possible for Los Blancos, who haven’t had the top two scorers of a LaLiga Santander season since Hugo Sánchez and Jorge Valdano in 1985/86.

Xavi kicked off with a derby win

Xavi Hernández coached his first match for Barcelona on Saturday night: the Barcelona derby vs RCD Espanyol at Camp Nou.

A Memphis Depay penalty saw Barça kick off the Xavi era with a 1-0 win and there were some positive signs, such as the performance of 17-year-old debutant Ilias Akhomach.

Fran Escribá is out as Elche coach

Fran Escribá is no longer the head coach of Elche. After returning to the Manuel Martínez Valero midway through last season and helping steer the team clear of the relegation zone, Escribá has now been let go after six matches without a win.

A setback for Pedri

Barcelona midfielder Pedri suffered a setback in his recovery from injury and is set for a longer spell on the sidelines.

The Canary Islander was one of the very best performers last season but has only managed two LaLiga Santander appearances so far this campaign.

League leaders Real Madrid will host Sevilla on Sunday in what is arguably the legue's biggest match of the weekend. 

Real's archrivals Barcelona will also have a tricky trip away to  Villarreal iin what will be Xavi's second match in charge of his former club.
