I think to understand how volatile these markets are you need look no further than the boy Ronaldo! Sent off twice now, both at the Bernabeu, and both for ridiculous petulance which left the refs with little alternative, despite the jeering masses of the Madridista's. I have a smidgen of sympathy with him for last weekends, but for £80 million and god knows how much per week, I would say the look on Pellegrini's face as the bold boy walked up the tunnel said it all.
Anyway, to this weeks matches and the eye-catching fixtures are probably the heavyweight clash between Sevilla and Valencia, as well as Real's trip to Depor. Interest in both of them, and a few more below.

Our bookings selections produced 4 winners and 4 losers, but when two of those losers are almost criminally big, at over 11 points between them, it's asking a lot to make that back. And we didn't! Two 145 make-ups in one weekend (one of them I'm querying with Sporting), and we were on the wrong end of both - not good. Enough to make you consider your future participation in these markets, but it really is like any other market, you will have freakish results a few times a season, and a 145 bookings make-up in Spain isn't even so freaky!
What would make me consider stopping is if I couldn't rely on the data I use to crunch the numbers. This has always been a slight concern in these markets, and I know that even Sporting have had problems with this, and in recent weeks, various sites have given very conflicting information.
I'll be monitoring this closely in future weeks, and may even advise only paper trading until I'm happy.
Enough waffle, here are the numbers for this weekend;
Weekend Bookings Total; 3.225pts loss
Weekend Supremacies Total; 5.925pts loss
Weekend Total; 9.15pts loss
La Liga Overall Total; 5.1pts loss
Sorry guys, that's a shocker, 20 points lost in two weekends, and into an overall loss position for the first time since the opening weekend.

We could have of course, but things went our way this time, particularly at Villarreal, where our bookings and supremacy buys were hurled in the right direction thanks to 3 sendings-off and a booking in the 90th minute! Previous weeks, these sort of things were going against us, so maybe we were due a freakish event in our favour?
Here are the numbers;
Weekend Bookings Total; 10.05 pts profit
Weekend Supremacies Total; 1.425 pts profit
Weekend Total; 11.475pts profit
La Liga Overall Total; 6.375pts profit
Back in overall profit, which is great to see. Would actually have been a further point better off, but I somehow omitted a profitable supremacy bet in the Real Madrid match from the thread - only just realised, sorry!

Bookings outperform the supremacies quite comfortably so far, but the sample is very small so I really need to try and carry on until the end of the season at least.

Supremacies Overall Total; 5.225pts loss

Suffice to say, he's been dumped this week, and his place has been taken by Mejuto Gonzalez for the Osasuna v Getafe game tomorrow. The La Liga site that I know Sporting use for their stats was still showing Burrell as the ref, so could they possibly have missed a trick, I wondered?
Well, they probably didn't anyway, but as it turned out, research revealed that Senor Gonzalez stats are uncannily similar to the other bloke, so no major change to the spreads would have been required anyway. Never mind.
Anyway, here are some for Saturday, possibly more to come for Sunday........
Sell bookings R Madrid v Sevilla @ 70 M/U 80. 0.75pts loss
Sell bookings Almeria v Barcelona @ 62 M/U 25. 2.775pts profit
Buy Sevilla/R Madrid supremacy @ 11 (Spreadex) M/U 20. 0.675pts profit
Sell Almeria/Barca supremacy @ 10 M/U -25. 2.625pts profit

Sell bookings A Bilbao v R Valladolid @ 62 M/U 0. 4.65pts profit
Sell Valladolid/Bilbao supremacy @ 4 M/U 0. 0.3pts profit
Sell A Madrid/R Zaragoza supreamcy @ 3 (Spreadex) M/U -15. 1.35pts profit

No yellow cards in the Barcelona game, just a red for Ibrahimovic, and no cards at all in the Bilbao game. You think you've seen it all, then along comes a La Liga match with a bookings make up of ZERO!! Not the first, but they don't happen very often, and it's the first time I've been on a sell in La Liga that's made up 0.
The Sage will remember one of our most memorable bets from yesteryear, when we went heavy on a bookings buy in a Milan derby. It was actually the year they met in the Champions League semis, and the make up was..............ZERO! This kinda makes up for that, hope you were on, Sage!
Anyway, the numbers for the weekend;
Bookings Weekend; 6.675pts profit
Supremacies Weekend; 4.95pts profit
Weekend Overall; 11.625pts profit
La Liga Total; 12.075pts profit
