MADRID, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- Matchday 5 in La Liga comes immediately after a midweek round of matches and brings to an end a condensed fixture period before the international break. Here are some things to look out for this weekend before La Liga takes a break.
Gaston is to challenge third seed Dominic Thiem in the fourth round. Earlier in the day, the Austrian had claimed another straight-sets victory over 28th seed Casper Ruud, beating the Norwegian 6-4, 6-3, 6-1.
MADRID, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid suffered an important injury blow on Friday when it was confirmed that right back Dani Carvajal injured a ligament in his right knee during the club's morning training session.
Shanghai's hope of leveling the game was shattered as Barbra Banda's shot in the 87th minute hit the woodwork and bounced off.
As opposed to early sluggishness last game, Xinjiang heated quickly into the game with a 10-0 surge on Shanghai's consecutive turnovers, before Bao Meng's jumper snapped Shanghai's scoring drought over six minutes. Xinjiang set up a 10-point cushion as the first quarter ran out.
Real Madrid has a deeper squad than Barca, as the fact that they were without Dani Carvajal, Eden Hazard, Alvaro Odriozola and Tony Kroos on Sunday and still won shows, but Courtois' displays mean that so far some of the results have been much better than the actual performances.

Beijing closed the first quarter on a 17-4 run, going up 33-17 as the quarter time ran out.

"We had a poor start as our players didn't show enough mentality, but I'm satisfied with the players' performance in the following three quarters," Shaanxi coach Jiang E'Ying commented.
