Samsung Experience: LaLiga Preview

Comments
La Liga action returns this weekend for game week five and you can experience all the action with Goal and Samsung.

  1. #1 Real Madrid vs. Espanyol

    Real Madrid will be overwhelming favourites to see off Espanyol when the two sides meet at the Bernabeu on Saturday. Julen Lopetegui's side started the season strongly, and had a 100 percent record after three matches, including emphatic 4-1 wins against Leganes and Girona. However, their offensive limitations were exposed when they went away to gritty Athletic Bilbao, prompting suggestions that Los Blancos will have their work cut out without their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.

    This game kicks off at 19:45 Nigeria time and can be live streamed on your Samsung Note 9 device.

  2. #2 Atletico Madrid aim for victory at Getafe

    Since defeating Real Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup final, Atletico Madrid's form has taken a turn for the worse. They were held at home by Valencia, then only sneaked a 1-0 win against lowly Rayo Vallecano. Things went from bad to worse as they were defeated 2-0 by a resurgent Celta Vigo, but they paid dearly for a stuttering display against Eibar, where Diego Simeone's side could only escape with a 1-1 draw.

    Defensive midfielder Rodrigo has been Atleti's key man so far, but surely his teammates need to step up when they face Getafe away at 17:30 Nigerian time on Saturday.

    You can keep up to date on the Goal live app.

  3. #3 Girona faced with huge Barcelona test

    So far this season, Barcelona have been the division's outstanding side, and none of their opponents have had any response for them. They've enjoyed four wins out of four -- a 100 percent record -- and currently have a goal difference of +11. Most worryingly for their opponents was the way that Barca dispatched SD Huesca, with an 8-2 scoreline sending shockwaves through the Spanish top flight. Ronaldo may have left the Spanish top flight, but 31-year-old Lionel Messi has shown no signs of slowing down, with four goals in four games so far this term. Ousmane Dembele has also impressed with three goals.

  6. #6 Will Kenneth Omeruo finally make his Leganes debut?

    After holding Real Madrid last weekend, Athletic Bilbao will be keen to keep the momentum going when they travel away to Real Betis on Sunday, with kick off at 17:30.

    Of particular interest for Nigeria fans will be the form of Leganes' Kenneth Omeruo when his new side face Eibar away at 15:15 on Saturday. The defender is yet to feature after moving from Chelsea on loan, but has described his switch to Spain as his biggest challenge yet.

    Will the Super Eagles centre-back get to make his debut for his new employers this weekend?
