SPANISH FOOTBALL | SOCCER - SPANISH LEAGUE - LA LIGA 2010 - 2011 | SATURDAY ROUND 5 RESULTS

SPANISH FOOTBALL celebrated three games tonight of the SPANISH LEAGUE - LA LIGA - as part of Round 5.

The above picture tells the story. Newly promoted LEVANTE managed to keep out REAL MADRID without scoring & gain a valuable 0-0 draw. It was perhaps the worst performance from Real Madrid this season with no clear game plan, lack of creative ideas & more individual performances than a real team effort. Yes, Levante played ultra-defensive but the Real Madrid stars did not shine tonight, & when Di Maria at least attempted to do things right, he was substituted.

Disappointing for Real Madrid fans as the play tonight was shocking & worrying looking into the future.

VALENCIA CF retakes the Spanish League ladder top spot after wrapping things up early with two goals via Turkish signing M.TOPAL with a header in the 6th min & SOLDADO (above) in the 9th min. The visitors "killed off" REAL SPORTING DE GIJON in the 1ºst half & then controlled & dominated the 2ºhalf to assure the 3ºpoints. Final result 0 - 2

ATHLETIC DE BILBAO lost 1-3 under the rain against FC BARCELONA who pulled away in the 2ºhalf of the match. The Bilbao stadium with its home team is always a difficult affair & things were equal until Bilbao defender Amorebeita received a red card for a dangerous tackle on Iniesta.

With 10 men Bilbao was at a sever disadvantage as Barça dominated proceedings. The goals finally came in the 59th min with a great goal by
KEITA & later a second via XAVI in the 73rd min. Then in a "stupid" tussle David Villa was sent off in the 86th min after mixing it up with a Bilbao defender. This equaled the numbers & Bilbao counter-attacked to score their only goal in the 89th min with GABILONDO. However, Barça meidfielder BUSQUETS shut the door of any hopes of a draw when he scored Barça´s third in the 92nd min.
