SPANISH FOOTBALL continued tonight with mid-week Round 10 matches that gave the following results & scorers for the six games scheduled of LA LIGA.
RAYO VALLECANO won MALAGA FC 2 - 0 making some suspect that things are not well at all with Malaga. This statement does not wish to take away the marvellous match that the Madrid team put in with goals from BOTELHO in the 7th min & TAMUDO in the 70th min.
Some are questioning already on the return on the big investments at Malaga.

REAL MADRID comfortably secured their match against VILLAREAL in 30 mins of great Football that was clinically precise with knife edge accuracy. Real Madrid are playing touch ball Football with the added touch of being deadly in the counter-attack. An early goal was disallowed to Sergio Ramos, but the gates opened with KARIM BENZEMA scoring in the 5th min from a Di Maria pass, then KAKA in the 11th min with a positioned driver & DI MARIA in the 30th min to have it all sown up.
The second half was more relaxed for Real Madrid dominating but not as effective with the goal with Villareal making a few incursions that were solved by a great Pepe-Sergio Ramos defensive duo. Real Madrid are currently looking good!
