Barca demolish Tenerife to stay top

Monday, 11th January 2010 4:51pm
Barcelona came from their disappointing draw in the last round demolish Tenerife 5-0 away from home.

The win made sure that Barca maintained their two point cushion at the top of the La Liga table. This was Tenerife's second 5-nil loss of the season after losing by the same scoreline to Villareal earlier in the season.

Real Madrid won its home fixture against Mallorca 2-nil and they and Barcelona have each scored 42 goals so far this season.

Round 17 of the Spanish Primera division also saw a big win for Atletico Madrid who beat Valladolid 4 -nil. This is the second time Atletico has won by a four goal margin after also beating Espanyol 4-nil in November.

Sevilla's poor run of form continues after losing 2-1 at home to Racing Santander. Sevilla has lost by the same scoreline in the last three matches. Their next match will be away to Barcelona.

Sevilla has now slipped down to fifth place on the ladder after being overtaken by Deportivo La Coruna.

Nothing has changed at the bottom of the table with both Xerez and Real Zaragoza losing. Malaga coudl only salvage a draw.

At this stage of the season after 17 rounds I think it is interesting to take a look at the trends in terms of the result at half time compared to the result at full time:


TrendFrequencyPercentage(%)
Home team leading at half time, home team winning at full time 4535.2
Away team leading at half time, away team winning at full time 2922.7
Home team trailing at half time, home team winning at full time 43.1
Away team trailing at half time, away team winning at full time 10.8
Draw at half time, home team winning at full time 3325.8
Draw at half time, away team winning at full time 1612.5
Matches ending in result 12875.3


So only five teams have so far managed to turn around the result at half time and with only one away team managing to do so.
