|Roberto ( Real Zaragoza)|
VILLAREAL managed to squeeze a 2 - 2 draw from REAL ZARAGOZA in an entertaining Football game. Real Zaragoza got ahead first after dominating play with a goal from LUIS GARCIA in the 34th min. Villareal reacted & equalized via ROSSI converting a penalty in the 41st min, to which Zaragoza cancelled out 4 mins later with a goal from BARRERA.
The second half was intense with a red card to Lazaro (Zaragoza) in the 80th min, & Villareal finally managed the equalizer in the 81st min via HERNAN PEREZ. I say finally because Zaragoza goalie ROBERTO stopped everything kicked / headed at him to keep his team within the points.
|Racing - Rayo|
RACING DE SANTANDER managed a comeback to draw 1 - 1 with RAYO VALLECANO. Rayo got ahead in the 20th min via RAUL TAMUDO & Racing equalized via ADRIAN in the 59th min.

|Canales scores for Valencia CF|
VALENCIA CF managed a very important confidence boosting 1 - 0 win over GRANADA. The winning goal came from young SERGIO CANALES ( ex Real Madrid) who scored in the 3rd min from a Piatti pass. The young player is slowly finding his game, securing a place & adding value to the Valencia team.
Deserved victory as Valencia played better & could have scored more.
Hard fought 6 spectacular victory for MALAGA 3 - 2 over the visitors GETAFE. The real action all happened in the 2º half with Getafe player PEDRO LEON scoring a "blinder" in the 55th min, that was answered by Malaga in the 64th min with a "crafty" VAN NISTELROOY equalizer.
The intensity grew more & Getafe got themselves ahead again in the 75th min via MIKU in what looked like a hand-ball. The verbal "ruckus" that followed earned Getafe player LACEN a red card for falling into a Demichelis ( Malaga defender) "trap". The good stuff was yet to come.
Getafe down to 10 men, Malaga player MARESCA scored to equalize in the 88th min & then the magic, Malaga Brazilian player BAPTISTA scored a superb overhead goal in the 92th min that blew the roof off the stadium. A true winner!
Malaga find themselves tonight , with 5 games of La Liga left to be played tomorrow, as Spanish Football League classification leaders.
