You're straight up dominating this one. 1-0 so far, Sociedad without any response.

Got this one in my smaller box on Picture-In-Picture... my new Android box (gbox 2) has PIP functionality finally, so Porto on big screen and you guys in the little one.

1-0 at halftime. Good start with Real' defence all over the place. They look very nervous. They played better in the last 10 minutes but no real threat still.

Sociedad's defending for the goal, good god. :D

Hopefully the CL games have an effect on Sociedad this season.

EDIT: On a side note, David Villa's hair looks class tonight.

Guess what Falcao would've tried if he was in Villa's position? He probably would've tried to cross high or slow up play. Villa with a great pass, even better finish by Koke. Bravo.

What are you doing; opening up a Falcao vs. Villa debate?

FT Real Sociedad 1 -2 Atletico

Frantic last few minutes and Courtois made a stunning save to deny Granero. Nice win.

The last 20 minutes were just so unnecessary because of how much the team had this game under control. Atlético should've scored at least four goals considering the chances that were created before they got a really sloppy goal, then came a bit of insecurity and Courtois had to make two tremendous saves, especially the one when Granero shot on target. That's what a world class keeper does :worship: This should be a lesson like Rayo last season for the team not to make errors at any time and keep concentration at every time.

Villa adds a lot more in the overall attacking play for Atlético. He's a much more intelligent striker in terms of team play and better technically, plus he can find his teammates more often. Atlético's overall attacking play benefits from him being able to find quick passes and make individual plays against his defenders. Falcao's a pure rematador, the best there is out there which is why he scores so many goals.
