We're #2 (in La Liga)!

Pretty exciting, isn't it? Particularly as compared to last season's floundering start, woeful away form, and aging, injured squad. Even Sr. Roig is pleased with the club's form, and he's notoriously hard to satisfy.

Highlights from Monday's thriller at La Rosaleda:

And the best of Thursday's Europa League encounter at El Madrigal:

Sadly, the B team suffered a 0-1 defeat to Salamanca on a late penalty conceded by Mario, despite being a man up for the final half-hour. That makes 3 Friday evening matches and 3 defeats for Javi Gracia's side. Mallorca's revenge?

Match preview to come on Sunday morning, but keep an eye on tomorrow evening's result in Valencia-Athletic. If our neighbors/rivals fail to take 3 points at home, Villarreal has a chance to go top of La Liga. Wouldn't that be something going into another two-week hiatus? Here's hoping that the Basques do us a favor at the Mestalla.
