Primera Liga - 2008/2009 [Jornada 1]



La Liga is back! ...and with a new sponsor, too. The "BBVA Liga" as it is now known, is entering it's 78th season with Real Madrid looking to add to their record 31 Ligas. The opening fixture couldn't be any tougher from a Historical viewpoint however - Madrid have not won at the Riazor for nearly 20 years. It's an unwelcome trend that we need to break as soon as possible if we want to get off to a good start.

VdV is suspended for his straight red card in the SuperCopa, but Van Gol is available as he was sent off for two bookable offences (he'll miss the first-leg of the SuperCopa next year). Drenthe, Marcelo and Gago are available for selection after their Olympic exertions and two of them are likely to start.




Casillas

S.Ramos - Pepe - Heinze - Marcelo

Diarra - Gago

Guti - Raúl - Robben

Van Gol​


La Liga| Sunday, 31 August 08| 21:00 CET| Riazor

If Robinho's still with us, he won't start. If you watched the celebrations yesterday, you could see that Schuster's really in love with Robben. He will definitely start.

Are we 100% sure that VDV is suspended?

Didn't Pepe get a straight red last super cup? He didn't miss the opener.
Nope, Pepe got two yellows and not a direct red. That's why I wasn't sure if the rule applied to VDV.

According to madridista.dk, ruud van Nistelrooy will not be able to play against Deportivo, even though he got two yellow cards. They have decided to give him a one-game ban they reported today. Can u confirm?

Yep both are suspended for 1 game by the Spanish FA. So Higuain will probably get the nod before Saviola :thumbsup:
