La Liga Loca (ouch) has experienced (ouch) two new sensations this week. The first was being stung by (ouch) a wasp, on its favourite typing (ouch) finger which makes (ouch) writing quite (ouch) painful. But it is ploughing ahead and taking one for the FourFourTwo team nonetheless.

We came to bury Caesar not to praise him but Claudio Ranieri lives to fight another day.Just when you thought the bottom was falling out of the Old Lady’s world, she digs out the gladrags and dolls herself up to seduce the whole country once again.She may have had to sweat a bit in the end but what a name to now have on the bed post, in name only as this Real Madrid certainly isn’t the vibrant beast of past years.Anyway, beggars can’t be choosers and the Italian press were a swoon as they went into a 360 degree spin following the weekend debacle in Naples.

The one downside, writes the still-glaring Lluis Mascaró in Sport, is how Barcelona look without Messi or Xavi on the pitch. “Without them, Barça lose the ability to unbalance. They lack depth and improvisation,” complained the columnist.
