Atletico Madrid overcome Sevilla challenge thanks to Griezmann, Gabi

Atletico Madrid picked up their second win of the season in style with a 3-0 victory over Sevilla.
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone says it is a benefit that there is so much competition for starting places at the club.

Sevilla is not an easy place to go, as many Spanish sides already know and a number of European teams will find out in this season's Champions League. They only lost once at home in the whole of last season -- 3-2 against Real Madrid -- which in turn ended a 35-game, 15-month undefeated streak. Therefore it cannot be understated just how good Atletico Madrid's 3-0 victory was and how much of a boost it will give Diego Simeone's side following their unconvincing 1-0 win over Las Palmas last week.

James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale top Real Madrid ratings in Real Betis demolition

ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik breaks down Gareth Bale's importance to Real Madrid in attack citing the teamwork betweek James Rodriguez, Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale to be the key contributing factor in their 5-0 win.

On Saturday, the Santiago Bernabeu witnessed Real Madrid earning its first win of the season against a subdued, timid Real Betis squad unable to stop a host hungry for goals.

The Madridistas desperately needed all three points to avoid potential claims of an early crisis after their 0-0 draw last weekend in Gijon and Barcelona's two wins in its first two matches. Madrid also wanted an emphatic win to stop a growing tide of critics who believed the side should perform at a higher level.

Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez lead Real Madrid's rout of Real Betis

ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik breaks down Gareth Bale's importance to Real Madrid in attack citing the teamwork betweek James Rodriguez, Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale to be the key contributing factor in their 5-0 win.

MADRID -- Three things from the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and Real Madrid's even easier than it sounds 5-0 thumping of Real Betis in Saturday evening's La Liga clash.

1. Bale's timing spot on

Gareth Bale came into this match with a point to prove. The world's most expensive player had been singled out as the main issue with the team's attack after last weekend's disappointing 0-0 draw at Sporting Gijon. His positioning as a No. 10 became a matter of much debate among Bernabeu fans and pundits over...

Thomas Vermaelen leads Barcelona with surprising winner vs. Malaga

ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik breaks down how Luis Suarez's movement on and off the ball makes him such a threat for Barcelona.

In Week 2 of La Liga, Barcelona achieved a narrow yet deserved victory against Malaga at the Camp Nou. Defender Thomas Vermaelen scored the only goal for the Blaugrana, who enjoyed 73 percent of possession, created a whopping 22 goal-scoring chances and attempted 19 shots, 13 of them on target.

Manager Luis Enrique fielded his strongest possible XI against a team that has been traditionally tough to crack at the Camp Nou, due to their unashamed defensive focus. That approach is helped by having...

Sergi Roberto to fill the Barcelona void as Luis Enrique prepares for Malaga

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Alexis Nunes look ahead to the Champions League campaigns for Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and Bayern Munich.

From the roll call of club legends trotted out on stage to the tribute videos and prizes for Lionel Messi and Marc-Andre ter Stegen, there was a distinct Barcelona tinge to Thursday's Champions League draw.

At the risk of spoiling the party, it was one of the players from the Barca squad not honoured who is far more relevant right now. The injury Dani Alves picked up against Athletic Bilbao last Sunday means he will be unable to compete until late September and as one of the most important players...
