La Pausa
Playing Time in La Liga

On this week’s show, we recruit the help of Opta Analyst’s Ollie Hopkins to help us dissect the topic of playing time, and how the early weeks in LaLiga have panned out.

After an interesting chat with Ollie, which revealed some fairly startling data, we switched across to discuss Sunday night’s showpiece in LaLiga (or at least in theory), Real Betis 0-0 Atlético Madrid… true, we didn’t get any goals, but we did gather some useful information.

And finally, in a nod to the wider world of Spanish football, we dipped below LaLiga to discuss one of the country’s sleeping giants Real Zaragoza. After two wins in two to begin the season, we explore the data and ask the question: could this be the year of Zaragoza?
