The atmosphere at the Nou Camp was sombre as Barcelona kicked off their La Liga campaign against Real Betis.The game started with a minutes silence for all those who had lost their lives in the terrorist attack on the city last Thursday.
Alin Tosca and Sergi Roberto scored and so Barcelona began the season with a win.Too early to say if that is a revival after that 5 – 1 aggregate loss to Real Madrid in the Supercup.
They have a long way to go .
Real Madrid cruised to a 3 – 0 win over Deportivo La Caruna.Ronaldo’s absence was not noticed at all.Gareth Bale, Casemiro and Toni Kroos did the scoring.
At the moment Zidane’s mob looks like a vastly superior team.
