Athletic Bilbao are the only team in La Liga not to have bought a single player this transfer window and they looked a bit stuffy last weekend in a remarkably pale performance at Sporting Gijon. Basque side were 2–0 down inside an hour and Sporting missed a penalty to go 3–0 up. A late strike from Borja Viguera was no more than a consolation goal and a 2–1 defeat at one of the relegation favourites was certainly not the ideal way to prepare for a fixture against the reigning Champions.

Meantime, the Catalans is off to their natural high-scoring and winning ways after demolishing last season’s freshly-promoted team Real Betis, 6–2, at the Nou Camp last Saturday. Two goals from Lionel Messi and a hat-trick brace from Luis Suárez were enough to secure the first win of the domestic campaign for Barcelona. Turkish midfielder Arda Turan was also on a scoresheet as the Brazilian maestro Neymar was enjoying the Olympics triumph.
