SaturdayVillarreal (2nd) vs Betis (18th)In the same way that seven dog years supposedly equates to 12 months of a human lifespan, 24 hours in Spain works out as roughly 700 years in the rest of the world.Despite having an entire summer to sort out the sale of Betis, there is still no news of whether the mysterious mob behind the BSport consortium will be buying out Darth de Lopera’s majority share in the club.The deadline for the deal is Saturday October 4. If no-one puts their paw print to the contract then the Lord of the Flies will walk away approximately 10 million euros richer, say Marca.Melli, for one, thinks that the big Betis boss ain’t going anyway. “He’ll always be there,” sighed the defender discussing de Lopera's departure, “and until I see something happening I’m not going to believe it.” LLL Prediction - Home winBarcelona (5th) vs Atlético Madrid (7th)La Liga Loca’s Atleti-insider predicted that things would be all right on Wednesday night for the rojiblancos, on the pitch, but would potentially go a little Pete Tong, off it. Hosting a Champions League match can be a bit of an ordeal for any team - but especially for one like Atlético which has the organisational abilities of, well, Atlético.

Whisper it but whisper it anyway, Andriy Shevchenko can score.He did it on Thursday when the Ukrainian finally found the net again for the only goal of the game in AC Milan’s UEFA Cup win at FC Zurich.Maybe now we can start to lay off with the jokes that the only thing he could hit was a golf ball and that he liked nothing better than giving footballs away by kicking them into the stands.He’s from Ukraine where apparently they aren’t big on laughing out loud, but even he cracked a smile when someone hollered ‘fore’ as he was about to shoot during a recent training session.
