SPANISH FOOTBALL continued today with Round 8 of the SPANISH LEAGUE - LIGA with four matches scheduled (tomorrow the last game scheduled). Here are the results & the scorers.
LEVANTE are surprising everyone & if they keep it up will be the revelation team. Today they defeated MALAGA 3 - 0 & share top spot with FC Barcelona. Malaga was well defeated & their complaint about the 61st min red card to their goalkeeper Caballero was unfounded as he touched the ball outside his area. The scorers for Levante were BAKERO in the 14th min, JUANLU in the 31st min & KONE in the 40th min. Levante are the "talk of Spanish Football".
|Real Zaragoza - Postiga|
REAL ZARAGOZA managed to get three very valuable points after defeating REAL SOCIEDAD 2 - 0. The man of the match was Zaragoza player POSTIGA who scored both goals in the 10th & 49th min. The first was an overhead kick that was possibly the goal of the Round, it was simply incredible.
|Romaric scores for Espanyol|
RAYO VALLECANO lost to a 53rd min goal by ROMARIC to give RCD ESPANYOL the three points. Not much to add for this game, except two teams very balanced & very tactically minded with the match decided by an opportunity that was well taken. Maximum efficiency from Espanyol.
SEVILLA FC won REAL SPORTING DE GIJON 2 -1 in an entertaining game that saw a spectacular first goal by Sevilla & forward MANU DE MORAL in the 15th min. Sevilla scored a second in the 57th min by CACERES & basically secured things. Gijon did not play bad at all, their only problem was Sevilla goalkeeper Javi Varas who kept them out although Gijon did managed a consolation goal via BARRAL in the 64th min.
Sporting are having a very terrible start to the season.
Monday Night Round 8 game: Athletic Club Bilbao - Osasuna
