wo red cards on the opening weekend of the season, both for players who were not playing in La Liga last season. Hércules's new signing Fritzler was the first to go after picking up two bookings in the opening game against Athletic Bilbao, and Almería's Carlos García followed the next day after crashing in to Osasuna's Pandiani shortly before the final whistle. The defender has just returned to the side after a loan period at second division Betis. Sevilla's Dabo and Cigarini and Barcelona's Piqué also feature in our first chart after picking up bookings in the Super Cup and also in the opening games of the new campaign. (02.09.10)
