Spain: La Liga Weekend Review

Barcelona are level with Real Madrid at the top of the La Liga table after registering a 4-2 win over Real Zaragoza. Barcelona winger Lionel Messi produced yet another masterclass to single-handedly destroy Real Zaragoza. Real Madrid continued their perfect home record but they were given a scare by Sporting Gijon before winning 3-1. Madrid produced little of note during a disappointing first half against a determined Sporting, and a shock looked on the cards when the mid-table visitors took a 53rd-minute lead through David Barral. However, that goal served to spark Madrid into life and within four minutes they were 2-1 ahead thanks to strikes from Rafael van der Vaart and Xabi Alonso.
