|At.Madrid - Real Betis|
REAL BETIS defeated ATLETICO DE MADRID 0 - 2 & at the home ground of Atletico. If this ain´t another sign to get rid of current Atletico de Madrid Coach Manzano, I don´t know what more is needed. A well deserved victory by Betis which took advantage of the locals defensive mistakes, while Falcao ( or team-mates) for Atletico could not take his opportunities. The goals for Betis came in the 54th min via POZUELO & the second via SANTA CRUZ in the 90th min.
|Granada - Levante|
GRANADA won 2 - 1 LEVANTE in an exciting much that made Granada work for their points. Granada got ahead in the 34th min via a penalty which SIQUIERA transformed & Levante equalized in the 45th min via GOMEZ. The game got tense as both side looked for the victory until KONE scored in the 60th min to secure the Granada win.
|Osasuna - Villareal|
OSASUNA defeated VILLAREAL 2 - 1 & the latter must be glad their 2011 "nightmare" run" in La Liga at least takes a break. Villareal got ahead first via MARCOS RUBEN in the 64th min , but fell apart with goals from IBRAHIMA in the 75th min & SERGIO in the 83rd min.
|Racing - Real Sociedad|
RACING DE SANTANDER could not win with REAL SOCIEDAD down to 10 men when in the 54th min Martinez was sent off. The match finished in a 0 - 0 draw & both sides must now be looking forward to the break & see were each can improve: Racing needing more help than Sociedad.
VALENCIA CF defeated MALAGA FC 2 - 0 with forward ROBERTO SOLDADO sending a clear message to Spanish National Team selector Vicente Del Bosque, that he is the man to replace injured David Villa. I personally think , with his current form, that he is the player. Soldado scored both goals for Valencia, the first in the 36th min & the second the 61st min in a convincing fashion with plenty of personality.
