The high points

It has been another vintage year of Spanish football.

Last Updated: 19/08/13 at 12:51 Post Comment

Tito Vilanova's Barcelona cruised to their fourth La Liga crown in five seasons, racking up a century of points and finishing 15 clear of long-time nemeses and last term's winners, Real Madrid.

Real Sociedad, meanwhile, defied the odds to poach the final Champions League berth ahead of Valencia, and Atletico Madrid, La Liga's third-placed team, edged out city rivals Real for the first time since 1999 to claim the Copa del Rey.

The Revista de La Liga squad have watched the action unfold all season long, but what were their highlights of the 2012/13 campaign? Read on for their picks...

GRAHAM HUNTER

"I've gone for the Spanish Supercopa; Barcelona were 3-1 up against Real Madrid and genuinely trampling all over them, but Iker Casillas, the guy Jose Mourinho couldn't stand, then made a great save to prevent Lionel Messi making it four - and then Real then went up the other end of the pitch and scored. It was an extraordinary 11-second turnaround in a game that gave us glimpses of how close Barcelona were to greatness and showed us that Real should have won more this season than they did."

GUILLEM BALAGUE

"It has to be a Messi moment and I'm going for his excellent goal against Athletic Bilbao in the game between Barcelona's Champions League semi-final matches with Bayern Munich. He was not fit but asked to make three key interventions and that was one of them, but he then came off the pitch and was depressed and said: 'I'm not right, I cannot help Barcelona'.

TERRY GIBSON

"I've gone for a slightly zany one from the first game of the season when we had the ridiculous 11pm kick-off between Mallorca and Espanyol. Mallorca's Tomer Hemed opened the scoring in the first half on Saturday and then tucked away his second at 12.40am on the Sunday! It could only happen in La Liga."

GERRY ARMSTRONG

"My choice would be the defining moment in the Copa del Rey final; Real Madrid were 1-0 up against Atletico Madrid and absolutely battering their rivals - but then it all changed. Radamel Falcao rode two challenges and played a superb pass and Diego Costa stuck the ball in the net and equalised - and I thought right then 'this is going to turn'. It did and the victory was great reward for Atletico, who deserved to win something this season."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

Rodgers still targets top four

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
