MADRID, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- Matchday 3 of La Liga sees FC Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Elche play their first games of the season, while Real Madrid has another difficult away game. Here are some things to look out for in Spain this weekend.
"For now, I think we can say that the big news will be the return of James to his place in football, playing and competing regularly, and the recovery and return of our captain Falcao," Queiroz said in an interview released by the Colombian Football Federation (FCF).
The match was played behind closed doors at Bloomfield Stadium in Jaffa, the southern part of the coastal city of Tel Aviv-Jaffa.
But these are just one-quarter of over 200 simplification measures to be talked about and more challenges are lying ahead of the IOC and Olympics organizers.
The win came thanks to goals from winger Darwin Machis and veteran Jorge Molina, and means that Granada has won all four of its opening games this season, with two wins in La Liga and two in its first ever appearance in European competition.
Granada continue their 100 percent start to the season that has seen them win two league games and qualify for the third qualifying round of the Europa League. Goals from Roberto Soldado and Darwin Machis gave Granada a 2-1 win at home to Alaves, whose goal was scored by Joselu.
It may seem harsh to say that the reigning Champions have problems scoring goals, but that was one of Real Madrid's main issues last season, with much of the responsibility falling on Karim Benzema.
Aston Villa also had goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez to thank for a first half penalty save to deny John Lundstrum when the scores were still level.
The second, decisive match will take place on September 30 in Salzburg, with the winner on aggregate to qualify for the Champions League's group stage. Enditem

LONDON, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- The Premier League jumps straight in at the deep end this weekend with Manchester United's visit to Brighton opening the third round, although fans will be forced to wait until Monday night for the star attraction when Liverpool entertain Arsenal.
