Primera Liga - 2007/2008 [Jornada 26]
Next Stop: Huelva :scared:.
So far this season, it has been Andalucía 3-0 Real Madrid. In three trips to Betis, Sevilla and Almería, we've gone home with zero points. Will the "Bermuda Triangle" continue in Huelva? The omens don't look good, but news on the injury front does. Pepe and Robinho are back in the squad, and are both set to start this match ahead of the crucial Champions League 2nd leg. It will be only the second time this season we'll be able to field our first-choice defense roud:.
3 league defeats in our last 4 matches has given the eternal enemy oxygen to believe again, and we must be careful here as it is possible for us to lose 1st place this weekend for the first time this season - and the psychological blow as a result would be substantial. However, Barça have a difficult match at Atlético, so a win here may allow us to extend out lead at the top to four or five points.
As for Recreativo, their new coach Manolo Zambrano has provided them with much-needed impetus. They're on a good run of form at the moment with two consecutive victories and a draw since the departure of Víctor Muñoz - which seems them two points clear of the drop zone.
