Today is an extrange day for the Basque soccer teams, one of them rejoices in the clear air that you can get only when you are on top, one more suffers the torturing heat of a team that is all the way in the bottom of the chart.
With seven victories and 21 points, Osasuna, leaded by Xabier "El Vasco" Aguirre is two points ahead of Barcelona, a team that defeated Real Sociedad with a final score of five-null.
Real Sociedad seats on 10th place with ten wins and 16 points. And they are in trouble outside the pitch.
And it is Athletic de Bilbao, the all-Basque team, the one that hold the infamous last place in the competition. They have only one victory and 6 points out of 30 disputed so far. Today they announced that they are replacing the coach José Luis Mendilibar with the old warrior, Javier Clemente.
Worst part is, Alaves is not exactly out of harm's way, today they saw the sun rising counting just one win like the bilbotarras, and standing on position number 18.
A bad year so far.
