|Manu del Moral scores a penalty for Getafe|
An extraordinary match with comeback included with SEVILLA FC going down 1 -3 to Madrid Club GETAFE. The home side had things relatively under control & scored in the 29th min via KANOUTE. From here fine until Getafe managed to win a penalty in the 57th min which MANU DEL MORAL converted to equalize. Then Sevilla collapsed, when 2 minutes later MIKU put Getafe ahead & later in the 74th min PEDRO RIOS gave Getafe the third. Sevilla had a goal disallowed but no one can explain the last 20 min crumble by Sevilla.
|Nilmar scores the third for Villareal|
REAL ZARAGOZA succumbed to the VILLAREAL´s dominance 0 - 3 in a match to shows again how Villareal has greatly improved from last season & reinforces the great start to the season maintaining top ladder positions. MARCOS SENNA got things going early in the 8th min, followed by a second in the 17th from CAZORLA & in form Brazilian NILMAR scored the third in the 65th min.
|Luis Garcia scores penalty for Espanyol|
ATLETICO DE MADRID lost in a see-saw game 2 - 3 against RCD ESPANYOL with some controversial decisions included during the 90 min. In fact, in my opinion, Atletico lost because they could not finish off the half a dozen clear opportunities that would have made it all easier, while Espanyol took their chances when they came.
Espanyol got ahead first via a penalty given for hand-ball that was controversial in the 21st min to which LUIS GARCIA scored. Then Atletico reacted & managed to equalize in the 45th min via TIAGO after Atletico missed goal chances earlier. The 2ºnd half kicked off with both sides attacking with end to end play & VERDU scored for Espanyol in the 54th min under controversial conditions again to see Atletico forward AGUERO equalize in the 65th min from a brilliant Forlan pass. Then in the 75th min Espayol forward OSVALDO scored an absolute "cracker" to put the visitors ahead & give them the 3 points.
Atletico de Madrid Coach Flores finished the match angry & with a run in with an Espanyol player which highlighted the "heated" decisions & the frustration ( dirty Aguero kick towards the end on a "floored" Espanyol player ) of watching how Atletico missed so many clear chances. Espanyol continue their winning streak maintaining themselves in Top of the ladder (4th - Euro) positions. Tweet
