Yes, but if you can't beat them join them. I'd rather the Bundesliga loses its tradition than falling further behind in quality & prestige. Wouldn't you be heartbroken when a club like West Ham would beat Bayern, and it wouldn't even be a surprise?

If I had no regard for quality of football, I would be following Maltese football instead.

And that one match will be between two of the top 3-4 teams, where 3 points are too important to be messed around for PR. And it will then increase to two matches. Then three matches. And so on.

Exactly. The NFL started out with 1 match being played out of the country every season, now they're already at four and it's barely been a decade. I can easily see the same thing happening to La Liga.

And, of course, homefield advantage is such an important part of association football(which is why home and away makes so much sense), and I can easily see, for example, Barcelona getting to play their home fixture against Atletico Madrid at home while Atletico has to play their home fixture against Barcelona in the U.S., resulting in a Barcelona victory, and then Barcelona winning the title by 3 points.
That's why I doubt it's gonna be regular "marquee" matches. Throughout recent years, several ligas have been decided by el classico and/or the Madrid derby. Would Barcelona, Real or Atlético allow themselves to be fked over that way? I don't think so.

And you know I agree with you on this. Yet consider: the EPL got its astronomical deals without taking games out of England.

Without knowing much about the legality of it all, what the Bundesliga should be looking at (if it is legal) is internet rights. This is still an area largely unexplored by the major leagues as far as I'm aware.

With the right benefits I think they will.

Very poor attendance figures for two of the biggest clubs in the world. It's unbelievable to have a football match start at 22:15 like Real Madrid's game. Must be for the Asian market.

Spain should revert back their clocks to the pre franco era

I read that few days ago, too.

What I also read yesterday is that captains of La Liga teams are going together to stand up against pervert Spanish federation decision to play Primera matches in the USA. It seems the total boycott is inevitable. :)

Two penalties...
The first two goals came from penalties ...
Were they valid at least?

I only watched parts so I didn't see them but Real kooked like they dominated the second half. In the first 30 minutes Girona had several good chances and Real could barely get close to their goal.

Atlético with one of the most expensive squads and a surprisingly slow start

Only managed 5 points in 4 matchdays with a relatively easy schedule !

Valencia 1-1 Atletico
Atletico 1-0 Rayo Vallecano
Celta de Vigo 2-0 Atletico
Atletico 1-1 Eibar

They spent like 200M in Costa, Vitolo, Lemar and
Kalinic but still can't score :o

Just finished watching Real v Espagnol.

Real have a great future ahead of them...
Ansensio
Isco
Mariano
And some others who are still very young but already show class.

As for the match Esp had their chances to get the 1-1-& were unlucky not to do so especially when they hit the bar.
