Corrigan: La Liga review

La Liga

On-form Barcelona will host 14th-placed Real Sociedad on Saturday in La Liga. Given their excellent performances in the last week, which saw the Blaugranas humiliate Real Madrid with a 4-0 win in the Spanish capital and then beat Roma 6-1 at home, the highly demanding Camp Nou crowd will expect nothing less than yet another spectacular showing against Los Txuri-Urdin.

In-form Barcelona replace Bayern Munich atop the Power Rankings

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop believe Barcelona are the best team in the Champions League.
The ESPN FC team debate which European power is in better form between Spanish side Barcelona or German side Bayern Munich.

Given what they achieved over the last week, there was only side who could top Shaka Hislop's Power Rankings!

That 2-1 victory was something of a smash and grab and owed plenty to the form of Sels, who reacted sharply to deny Alexandre Lacazette and Rachid...
