SPANISH FOOTBALL | SOCCER - SPANISH LEAGUE - LA LIGA 2010 - 2011 | SUNDAY ROUND 3 RESULTS

SPANISH FOOTBALL continued with the Sunday Round 3 matches scheduled as part of the SPANISH LEAGUE - LA LIGA - competition. A total of 5 games with the last game of the Round down for tomorrow night with Deportivo - Getafe up for their clash.

ATLETICO DE MADRID , with Sergio Aguero in the starting 11, in the big match against FC BARCELONA lost 1-2 in a game that could have gone Barça´s way 1 - 5 have it not been for Atletico de Madrid 19 year old goalie DAVID DE GEA who stopped some amazing opportunities. In fact, the Atletico Goalkeeper was the "Man of The Match" which indicates that the visitors kept the player busy, especially in the 2ºhalf.

Atletico played its habitual counter-attacking Football & had chances throughout the game, but important players like Aguero (substituted early in the 2ºhalf with the knee still a problem) & Diego Forlan were not effective today & that lack of "fire-power" was missed up front. Barcelona caused danger all game & created multiple chances with only 2 goals because Atletico had an inspired De Gea.

The goals for Barça came via LEO MESSI in the 12th min & PIQUE in the 32nd, with the only home team goal coming via RAUL GARCIA with a header from a corner in the 25th min that equalized.

Lastly, Atletico defender Ujfalusi received a Red Card in the finals moments of the game for a foul on Messi that has switched the alarms at Barça when the Argentine was taken off with a swollen ankle. The star Barça player could be out of action weeks!

RACING DE SANTANDER won a struggling
REAL ZARAGOZA with a 2-0 result. Both goals came in the 2º half when HENRIQUE scored in the 79th min & NAHUELPAN in the 90th min.

Spanish Football
LEVANTE lost 1-2 to VILLAREAL who had an inspired NILMAR who scored his teams two goals both in the 15th min & the 42nd min. Levente fought all game to get close & was rewarded with a consolation goal via CAICEDO in the 90th min.

VALENCIA CF won a sticky & fighty HERCULES 1 - 2 away. JUAN MATA shocked early with a 1st min goal from a Hernandez assist that rocked the home team. Then Mata returned the assist to PABLO HERNANDEZ who scored the teams second in the 22nd min. Hercules then received a penalty in the 42nd min that TREZEGUET convert to give hope to the local side, but Valencia kept at bay Levante who had many chances to equalized but failed to materialize. Valencia CF are new leaders of the Spanish League

SEVILLA FC Coach Alvarez was under pressure with his job on the line tonight, but his team managed to shake off MALAGA to win 1 - 2. In fact Sevilla FC could have won by a bigger margen but Negredo hit the post in the 2ºhalf & the Sevilla FC missed chances.

The first goal was scored by RONDAN for Malaga, but ALFARO soon equalized in the 19th min. At the start of the 2º half Sevilla FC defender CACERES headed the second & finally the winner for the visitors. A deserved win for Sevilla FC.
