LaLiga Four Barcelona players involved
Four Barcelona players have been included in MARCA’s team of the week for Matchday 8 of LaLiga Santander after their 4-0 win over Sevilla.
Lionel Messi, Ousmane Dembele, Arturo Vidal and Nelson Semedo are joined by Aitor Fernandez (Levante), Damian Suarez (Getafe), Kiko Olivas (Real Valladolid), Nestor Araujo (Celta Vigo), Fede Valverde (Real Madrid), Francis Coquelin (Valencia) and Chimy Avila (Osasuna).
Just three days after a trip to Russia in the Europa League, Getafe pulled off an unlikely comeback against Real Sociedad at Anoeta. Mikel Merino had given the hosts an early lead before second half strikes from Jaime Mata and Nemanja Maksimovic saw Jose Bordalas’ side take all three points back to Madrid.
Luis Suarez set the Camp Nou alight on Wednesday night with his scissor kick in the Champions League and he repeated the feat against Sevilla on Sunday. The Uruguayan striker pulled off a sensational bicycle kick to put Barcelona in front in the crucial clash.
Facundo Roncaglia also raised some eyebrows with his long range effort as his Osasuna side came back from a goal down to win against Villarreal on Saturday.
Real Madrid fans were made to wait until Matchday 8 to see the best of Eden Hazard in a white shirt. He produced an impressive display against Granada at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, netting his first Los Blancos goal in the process.
Iago Aspas has also had a slow start to the season but came up with the winning goal on Sunday as Celta beat Athletic Club at Balaidos.
