FOOTBALL – Four matches into La Liga season, and it is tight at the top.

Three teams sit on 10 points, but with Real Madrid leading the way on goal difference. They are followed by Valencia and last season´s La Liga winners, Atletico Madrid.

Atletico is at home against Athletic Club tomorrow. And Valencia is at home on Sunday to Real Madrid. 33-year-old French striker, Karim Benzema has scored and assisted in no less than 9 goals for Real Madrid so far in La Liga this season.

Barcelona is at home on Monday evening against Granada who has yet to win a game. Although Barcelona is in 7th place, they are only 3 points behind the leaders at this stage in the competition. Eighteen year old, Ansu Fati wears the number 10 shirt, but it looks likely he will not be fit for the match on Monday.
