UEFA will investigate and blame Man City.

For anyone who may be interested, tonight @ 8pm on ITV4 they're showing the opening La Liga game between Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona.

EDIT: Further update on this, ITV will also be showing Barcelona v Real Betis (25th August) and Villareal v Real Madrid (1st September)

Sounds like they're looking to negotiate a deal to show some more games too - La Liga: ITV win rights to air three live matches of new season

Barca beaten by mighty Bilbao in the opening game, in the absence of Messi.....
Really it must have been a really late one .. i thought Bilbao had gave up on even trying to win it in the 2nd half .. that will teach me to always watch until the very end.

Not too shabby a finish from the 38 year old substitute!

Bit of a stinker considering some of the talent on show.
Thought it was a main sewer of a stinker .. Thomas of AM did he previously play for Bilbao as he was far and away the best player last night.

Not a bad record to leave with,2 successive La Liga titles and currently top of league.

But they dont seem to dominate teams like in previous years. Overly reliant on Messi.

And now with Suarez out for a good few months I think they will find it harder to win the champions league.

Both Barcelona and Real Madrid have dropped down a level from the high standards they were before.

I read that its because Xavi is supporting Font to be the new barcelona president in next years elections. Thoughts are that if Font could deliver Xavi as the next potential coach it would go a long way towards him winning the election
