|Lass for Getafe|
The REAL BETIS "bubble" loses air with every game with another defeat at the hands of RAYO VALLECANO which won 0 - 2. The visitors simply finished their opportunities better than the home side starting with LASS who "looped" a nice goal over the keeper in the 80th min & KOKE scored the second in the 89th min for the sealer.
Two sides that are going through a rough Football period managed a 0 - 0 draw. REAL SOCIEDAD & GETAFE played a match with little to mention except the last minute opportunity for Getafe forward Pedro Leon which hit the bar. Bad luck still present & unable to shake off for Getafe.
OSASUNA put REAL ZARAGOZA back to earth with a convincing 3 - 0 victory. The goals came from RAUL GARCIA in the 17th min, NINO in the 27th min & NEKOUNAM in the 30thm. As you can see the damage was all done the first half hour of the match with Real Zaragoza thereafter attempting to lift but unable to shake off the triple punches.
|At.Madrid - Mallorca|
ATLETICO DE MADRID continue with their uninspiring & ineffective play with a 1 - 1 draw against REAL MALLORCA. The goal for Mallorca came early in the 2nd min when Atletico defender Silvio hand-balled in the penalty area & HEMED scored. Atletico managed to equalize via FALCAO with a penalty in the 41st min. From then on, Atletico dominated play but as we have all become accustomed too the goal scoring area is not smiling on them at all. Pressure is on Atletico Coach Manzano who is increasingly being questioned for his set up, tactical ideas or lack off.
VALENCIA CF played an entertaining a hard fought 1 - 1 draw match with ATHLETIC CLUB BILBAO that went down to the wire. Very tactical & battled in the midfield that saw Athletic go ahead in the 72nd min when MUNIAIN scored. But in the 89th min ROBERTO SOLDADO saved his team with an equalizer "in extremis". Emotion until the end, & Bilbao slowly getting its Football back together under Coach Bielsa.
LEVANTE visited VILLAREAL & won away 0 - 3 plus is now leading the SPANISH LEAGUE. Levante continues to surprise everyone & is currently the "revelation team" with hard honest work as their base philosophy. The visitors dominated from start to finished & deserved the victory with two goals from JUANLU ( 16th & 43rd min) & KONE in the 72nd min.
Note: mid-week action with Round 10!
