One of the games of the Round with REAL BETIS winning 4 - 3 REAL ZARAGOZA, & in doing so, leads the Spanish League table. Real Betis was down to 10 men after they lost their goalie Casto in the 69th min which allowed Zargoza to make a heroic last 20 min comeback attempt that fell short for them. Here is the sequence of the events using the goal scorers as a guide:
- Roque Santa Cruz ( Betis ) - 7th min
- Salva Sevilla (Betis) penalty - 12th min
- Juarez (Zaragoza) - 36th min
- Beñat (Betis) - 53rd min
- Roque Santa Cruz (Betis) - 60
Red Card (Betis goalie Casto)
- Juan Carlos ( Zaragoza ) - 75th min
- Juan Carlos ( Zaragoza ) - 78th min.
As you can see much excitement & a great match of Spanish Football. Real Betis are celebrating the fact they are "provisional" Liga leaders with 12 points.
|Pandiani for RCD Espanyol|
RCD ESPANYOL managed "in extremis" to defeated GETAFE 1 - 0. It was deserved for Espanyol but perhaps cruel for Getafe as they watched PANDIANI score the winner (93rd min) with seconds left of the match. The visitors were heart-broken as the home side was obviously euphoric.
