Many La Liga players have been on long, gruelling trips in the last few days, not least of which the Spanish internationals, who travelled to Costa Rica for a friendly match on Tuesday. Others have had to play tense Euro qualifiers, and the South Americans returned to their continent to take part in the World Cup preliminaries. You wouldn't have thought it though on Saturday looking at Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who both played the full 90 minutes again in their respective matches. Messi got one of four in Barça's victory over Zaragoza, with Villa also on target and both first choice central defenders (Piqué and Puyol) signalling their return to the side with goals. And Ronaldo was one of the scorers in Madrid's tight 2-3 win at Valencia, Benzema starting things off for Mourinho's side and ex Madrid striker Soldado netting twice for the Ches to set up an exciting finish. Adrián was also in the goals as Atlético beat Levante 3-2 on Sunday, although a late strike by Rubén Suárez put the result in doubt until the end, and Miku opened the scoring for Getafe at Sporting, although in the end it wasn't enough as the Asturians turned the scoreline around later on. Finally a special mention for Granada's Carlos Martins, whose young son Gustavo is in need of a bone marrow transplant. The players showed their support for the Portuguese international before the match against Mallorca, and Martins responded with a cracking goal in the second half. Pity that some idiot in the crowd had to spoil it for him, but we wish Gustavo a speedy recovery from all of us here at Soccer-Spain. (22.11.11)
