It’s amazing what separates 1st and 2nd place when it comes to sports. Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid are almost identical, with each team winning 4 games, playing to 3 draws and suffering not a single loss. Yet, it all comes down to one important stat: Goal Difference. Atletico has allowed only 2 goals to be scored on them this season while Real has watched 7 balls whip by their defenders.
By allowing Eibar to score a goal on them during their Oct. 2 game, per AS English, Real Madrid pretty much handed the top position of the table to Atletico. Even Gareth Bale’s 50th goal in La Liga couldn’t help them fall to second place. With Atletico facing last-place Granada on the 15th, it’s unlikely that Real Madrid will be able to unseat their rivals as kings of La Liga.
Real Betis (aka Beticos aka Verderones aka Big Breens!) is way back in 15th place. It seems that instead of bringing the fight with Los Blancos, Big Greens’ coach Gus Poyet, 48, figured he’d throw some shade at Manchester City’s manager, Pep Guardiola, 44, while flattering Atletico’s coach, Diego Simeone, 46.
“I’m very grateful to Simeone because he showed the football world is not just Pep,” he said, per ESPN. “[Diego] has shown to all the coaches in the world that there is another way, because I was a bit fed up that so many people followed Guardiola’s style.” Well, check the mirror Gus. Man United may not be on top of the Premier League but Pep’s style has them scoring more points than Beticos so far.
