    Your Favorite LaLiga team beside Barça ?

    Following the other thread about most hated LaLiga team, I think there'll be more differences about the ones we actually prefer besides Barça.

    For me it's Rayo, Eibar this season, and Sevilla.



    EDIT : I could only post 15 choices, left out are Real Madrid, Espanyol, Getafe and Levante.

    The Internet is full of tribute videos with some version of the title "Messi doesn't dive" a trait rare in a sport where players roll around on the ground like gunshot victims when an opponent so much as breathes on them.

    Theories abound about why Messi won't fall, about his character or his respect for the game, but I think it's much simpler. If he dives, he loses the ball.

    It varies depending on recent history vs barça. I like Sevilla and Valencia in general, root for them in the EL & such. Also because strong spanish clubs outside of barca and RM are underrated in Europe. Atletico are alright at times and disgusting at others. Bilbao has an amazing history and tradition but this year fuck them

    I used to like Valencia but now it's Rayo.
    Gijón is another team I like because of Halilović and Abelardo.
    Villarreal is 3rd. They always played good football.

    I can't get myself to like Valencia, if they're playing a british team in UCL i'll root for them, other than that I kinda dislike them ^^

    I also like most of La Liga teams and i always root for them in international competitions. Honestly, even RM if they are against top clubs from England for example.
    But more than rest at least recently i have supported Celta Vigo (strong Barca connection there), also Villareal ever since they are back. I think Atleticos rise from mid-table to title pretenders is also cool.

    I used to really like Athletic Club under Bielsa and it kinda sticks... I still like them and respect them although they've been kinda poor in footballing terms past few seasons. Also enjoy Rayo and Villarreal, Celta has also been playing some gorgeus football past few seasons.

    villareal. great football, great players, always a joy to watch even when they take a dive to segunda, and they always have the potential to upset either real or barca

    I am sympathetic to Spanish teams in general for they have done exceptionally well in Europe for almost 2 decades now, despite their financial disadvantage vis a vis English/Italian/German clubs.

    But my favorite non-Barca Spanish club has to be Valencia. Their 2 CL final runs were impressive back in the day. They deserved to win at least one.

    Then, it has to be the Yellow Submarine, and then Sevilla. Real Betis also have a tremendous fanbase as do Bilbao.
