Spain: Eduardo Alvarez's Weekend Review

On an enthralling Sunday evening, a brave, surprising second-half display by Sevilla brought some of the lost excitement back to La Liga. After a few seasons performing remarkably in both domestic and international competitions, this season's Sevilla appeared to have lost not only their uncanny ability to rebuild their side over the summer while remaining competitive, but also their unparalleled will to fight from equal to equal with the rest of the top-tier clubs. This match could very well put the Sevillistas back on the right track. Right before hosting leaders Barcelona this weekend, Sevilla's management had finally decided to let unhappy striker Luis Fabiano return to Sao Paulo FC for a meagre bag of crisps. The forward's evident desire to leave for the capital of flamenco dancing provided the main rationale for the decision, although the club especially wanted to avoid paying his hefty salary.
