|Benzema hat-trick man|
REAL MADRID won 8 - 0 LEVANTE to assure its pass to the next stage of the Spanish Cup & calm the waters at the Club after a tense couple of days. Suffice to say that apart from KARIM BENZEMA ( 6th, 31st & 68th min) & CRISTIANO RONALDO ( 44th , 71st & 73rd min) who both scored HAT-TRICKS, OZIL ( 9th min ) & PEDRO LEON ( 89th min) also got some cake as well. Levante attempted to stop Real Madrid in the second half with very rough tactics boarding on the absurd, but they could not stop the other significant Real players like Di Maria, Marcelo, Xabi etc who contributed to "bury" the visitors.
The Real Madrid youngster Morata came on towards the end & nearly scored.
|Ulloa Hat-Trick man|
Exciting game between ALMERIA & MALLORCA with the former winning 4 - 3 with Almeria forward ULLOA getting a HAT-TRICK ( 6th, 28th & 72nd min). The other scorer for Almeria was UCHE in the 65th min, with DE GUZMAN in the 28th, CASADESUS in the 44th & WEBO in the 88th min all scoring for Mallorca. A great match with the elimination still right open.
|Simao scores his last goal with Atletico|
Controversial match with some uneasy & doubtful decisions, added to some strong playing attitudes that gave ATLETICO DE MADRID a 1 - 0 victory over RCD ESPANYOL with the former down to 10 men from the 41st min (red card to Reyes for an aggression) . The goal scorer was SIMAO via a very doubtful penalty in the 32nd min which was his last goal for Atletico & in Spanish Football as he leaves for Turkey & Besitkas. lastly young Atletico goalie De Gea put in an outstanding performance to keep the scoreline 1 - 0 with his team with 10 men!
|Betis - Getafe in the rain|
BETIS lost 1-2 to Madrid Club GETAFE in the pouring rain. A great spectacle of a match with goals from MOLINA in the 87th min via a penalty for Betis to pull one back, apart from the earlier Getafe goals from MIKU in the 26th min & RIOS in the 36th min. Great comeback effort from Betis to keep them alive as they drastically improved in the second half & were justly rewarded.
|Sevilla FC Alfaro scorers|
Big scoring match between SEVILLA FC & MALAGA which included a 2ºhalf turn around by the home side to win 5 - 3. Sevilla FC opened the scoring via ALFARO in the 11th min but collapsed to a string of Malaga goals that almost "killed" them off via RONDON ( 19th & 26th min) & QUINCY in the 41st min, with a reaction from NEGREDO in the 31st min scoring the Sevilla important second. Sevilla FC then bit the bullet in the 2º half to enforce their presence on the field with two goals from ROMARIC in the 66th & 80th min & CAPEL in the 82th min to turn things right around & triumph. Great match of Football to watch.
