ATHLETIC DE BILBAO put REAL ZARAGOZA deeper into their particular "crisis" & cemented them another week in the last place of the Spanish Liga table after losing 2-1.
Bilbao dominated the match outright doing the damage early with goals from IRAOLA in the 11th min & the second from the man in form FERNANDO LLORENTE in the 23rd min. Bilbao had a string of more goal opportunities that did not get converted & when it did happen was disallowed.

MALLORCA could not take advantage when RCD ESPANYOL lost Osvaldo in the 35th min to a red card & even lost 0-1 to a LUIS GARCIA goal in the 31st min. Espanyol under the circumstances & with a man down did the only logical action possible: defend with tooth & nail & it paid off for them.

Two teams in deep troubles, DEPORTIVO A CORUÑA & OSASUNA, finished in a surprising 0-0 draw. There was chances galour all game for both teams, especially for Deportivo after Osasuna lost Camuñas around the 30th min to a Red Card.
From this moment onwards, the protagonist was Osasuna goalkeeper RICARDO who stopped everything shot at him from Deportivo who were in total control.

Sevilla FC attempted to make a comeback but with so much movement one-way - all forward & goal directed - Sporting nearly caught Sevilla out defensively. Good game from Sporting & Sevilla FC still with "difficulties" that have appeared this season.
