SPANISH FOOTBALL action tonight with the 7 remaining matches of Round 6 corresponding to the Spanish League - Liga - competition being played with same surprise results. Here is the summary of the results & the scorers of todays games.

New SEVILLA FC Coach Manzano has "revitalized" his team which overran ATLETICO DE MADRID with a convincing 3-1 victory at home. The visitors were totally out played in the 1st half with good Football by Sevilla & some poor defending by Atletico. NEGREDO (above) scored in the 28th min to put Sevilla ahead, which was then followed by a second in the 35th min by PEROTTI.

The 2ºhalf saw a better Atletico but Sevilla was on an unstoppable roll & managed a third goal via KANOUTE in the 51st min. Atletico was rewarded with a consolation goal in the 57th min via DIEGO COSTA.

Yes, Atletico was without Aguero, Reyes & Godin , but it was no excuse for their poor performance today.

VILLAREAL are cruising & won their 5th straight "Liga" match 2-0 against RACING DE SANTANDER. The 1ºst goal came via Brazilian International NILMAR in the 8th min & who has already 5 goals on his tally this season & is the current the Spanish League leading goal scorer. The second goal came thanks to ROSSI (above) who scored in the 13th min. The job & damage to Racing was done early & with the 3º points Villareal jumps into Top 3 positions of the ladder.

Spanish FootballRough & tough affair at OSASUNA with a final 1-1 draw result against LEVANTE. The action occured late in the game with the first goal coming from Osasuna forward PANDIANI (above) in the 71st min which was then followed by the equalizer for Levante in the 79th min via SERGIO.

Glorious game for GETAFE who defeated HERCULES 3-0 at home. Getafe got ahead in the 20th min via PAREJO (above), which was then followed with goals from team-mates MANU in the 42nd min & MIKU in the 81st min. It was a frustrating day for Hercules who lost Aguilar in the 88th min to a red card.

Unlucky day for ALMERIA who missed a penalty via Uche & hit the post to finally scratch a 1 - 1 draw against MALAGA. The visitors got ahead in the 50th min via QUINCY & UCHE managed the equalizar for Almeria in the 76th min to the relief of the local fans.

Spanish FootballFC BARCELONA drew 1-1 with visitors MALLORCA. Barça are having problems finishing off their good starts & when they are the superior playing team. This lack of "killing power" raises the confidence of the opposing teams & lifts their hopes.

FC Barcelona were total masters of the match & LIONEL MESSI opened the scoring with his goal in the 20th min. However, Barça missed more chances they should have scored & Mallorca grew in confidence with the misses.

Spanish FootballMallorca then equalized from a corner with a great header from N´SUE in the 42th min after both Barça defenders Milito & Pique misunderstood each other in the play.

The 2ºhalf was more of an equal affair & Mallorca had more chances to get ahead, but N´Sue let Barça off the hook with a near miss. The last 45 min was "try & miss" with Barça almost happy to see the end of the match. Unusual to watch Barça like it was seen playing tonight in the 2ºhalf, perhaps the fact that "midfield brain" Xavi Hernandez was missing was a significant reason.

Spanish Football Sports BlogFestival of goals tonight at the "Santiago Bernabeu Stadium" with a new grass surface & plenty of rain that saw the home team REAL MADRID defeat 6-1 DEPORTIVO A CORUÑA. It was all Real Madrid for the first minute with a solid defensive line & a disciplined midfield that served balls to their goal starving shooters upfront.

CRISTIANO RONALDO got things off to a flying start with the first goal (above) in the 4th min which was later followed with a second from OZIL in the 24th min. Then DI MARIA - Best Player tonight - headed in the third in the 33rd min to finish a brilliant 1ºst half of Football for Madrid.

The second half saw Lass Diarra come on for Khedira & things continued as before with more goals with HIGUAIN scoring the fourth from a Di Maria pass in front of the Depor goal (above) in the 52nd min. Eight minutes later a Ronaldo & Marcelo combination saw Depor defender ZE CASTRO put in an own goal & the home teams fifth of the night.

Real Madrid relaxed with more changes with Granero & youngster Juan Carlos getting a run which allowed JUAN RODRIGUEZ to score a consolation goal for Deportivo in the 78th min while Madrid were caught "sleeping" in defence. However, CRISTIANO RONALDO got back in the groove & converted a great Xabi Alonso pass in his second goal of the night in the 88th min & Real Madrid´s sixth.

Early days to get too excited about Real Madrid, but tonight they definately showed a better & improved image, they managed to break the goal scoring drought & gave their fans "good vibrations". There are reasons to be happy with the image shown tonight.
