Where are the goals? La Liga needs Leo Messi, Luis Suarez and company back to business as soon as possible. Aduriz has also been called-up, as the Athletic Club striker scored three past Barcelona in the previous match at San Mamés between both teams.

3 goalless draws

La Liga started this Friday and Saturday with 3 matches out of 5 without any goals. Teams like Valencia or Sevilla, that should fight for the first positions of the table, couldn't score away from home.

  • Malaga 0 - 0 Sevilla
  • Deportivo 0 - 0 Real Sociedad
  • Rayo Vallecano 0 - 0 Valencia

2 goals, 2 free-kicks

Athletic Club and Barcelona will have the chance to score the first La Liga goal that not comes from a set-piece. Salva Sevilla (Espanyol) and Griezmann (Atletico Madrid), have been the only goalscorers of the gameweek. Both with free-kicks.

  • Espanyol 1 - 0 Getafe
  • Atlètic de Madrid 1 - 0 Las Palmas

No more goals than these two. Not on Friday and not on Saturday, where strikers didn't have their day. Today the champions are back. So are Leo Messi and Luis Suarez. Hopefully this lack of goals will come to an end.
