Barcelona Slip Up

Could this be the turning point in the La Liga title race? The league has barely made past the 10 game mark and it would be presumptuous to think that Real Madrid will win the title, however, Barca’s slip up at home on Saturday, gave Los Merengues the opportunity to leap the Catalans into first place in the League thanks to their 4-0 win over Malaga.

Barcelona were held to a barren draw at home by a determined Sevilla side that almost caused a big upset at the Camp Nou last night. The visitors got off the mark very fast and threatened to score early in the game when Emiliano Armenteros attempt with a  beautiful half volley shot was scampered just a inches wide of the goal post.
