OSASUNA put end to the dream run of LEVANTE, & the top spot of the classification table, after winning 2 - 0 at home. Osasuna have always being traditionally a tough team to beat in front of their "fierce" supporting fans. The goals came via CEJUDO in the 40th min & NINO in the 44th min as Osasuna took full advantage of the low moments of Levante. The home side double combination "knock-out" punches were effective as the visitors could not recover thereafter.
Real Madrid now lead the Spanish League.
|Racing - Betis|
First victory for RACING DE SANTANDER over REAL BETIS 1 - 0. The winner came from a penalty transformed by STUANI in the 63rd min. Real Betis continue with their bad run as this is their 7th straight loss. Alarm bells sounding at Betis!

REAL SPORTING DE GIJON managed another valuable point at home with their well fought out 1 - 1 draw against ATHLETIC CLUB BILBAO. All the big action was in the 2º half with Bilbao getting ahead via SUSAETA in the 62nd min & Gijon drawing via BILIC in the 70th min.
|Adrian for At.Madrid|
ATLETICO DE MADRID reacted to a series of bad performances & failure to score goals winning REAL ZARAGOZA 3 - 1. Atletico de Madrid Coach Manzano lifts his head out of the chopping block for now as this victory will give him much needed oxygen. The Coach also left midfielder Reyes out as punishment for his out of tone language after being substituted in the last game, his substitute ADRIAN was key to tonights victory.
ADRIAN scored two goals in the 18th & 74th min, along with team-mate & defender DOMINGUEZ in the 29th min. Zaragoza managed to take adavantage of the Atletico "caos" as substitutions were being made & that allowed POSTINGA to score a good header in the 78th min. The MVPs tonight was Atletico Turkish midfielder Turan, Diego played well & of course Adrian.
Will Atletico be able to continue with his "new found" form?
The goals came via RONDON in the 5th min & Espanyol fought back to equalize with a 45th min goal by ALVARO ALVAREZ. The "hot" moment came in the 75th min when a non-existent penalty was called in favour of Malaga which APOÑO transformed & ended up giving his team the three points.
