The rayo story doesn’t surprise me at all. The stadium is so run down it doesnt resemble that of a team in the segunda never mind La Liga. I haven’t read the article yet but I’m not sure how long they won’t be able to host home games for. If they need to for renovations I don’t think they’ll be able to afford it…
And regarding Real Madrid, they do look very good so far this season. Lopetegui has got a really balanced team installed with a possession based game. It’s becoming evident that they will be a much better balanced side than last season. The absence of Ronaldo also seems to be bringing the best out of Benzema, Bale, Asensio, and Isco. I think they’ll be great to watch this season for sure!
As for Atletico, the defeat isn’t surprising judging by their opening games. I wouldn’t read too much into their performances yet though as it is early, plus Celta Vigo away is a tough game for Barça/Real Madrid too
