|Granada celebrate goal|
GRANADA won 2 - 1 CELTA DE VIGO in an entertaining match which will leave Celta soured as they missed plenty of chances. The team that did take their opportunities was Granada & they obviously took the three points this afternoon. The first goal came via TORJE in the 11th min via a penalty & the second came via SIQUIERA in the 16th min. The only goal for Celta came via ASPAS in the 20th min.
Special mention to Granada goalie Toño who stopped everything fired at him by Celta, top match & team saviour.
|Valladolid - Rayo Vallecano|
Big scoring game at VALLADOLID with the home side defeating 6 - 1 the Madrid Club RAYO VALLECANO. Goals from Valladolid came from DOMINGUEZ ( 5th min ), MANUCHO ( 13th & 85th min), OSCAR ( 21st & 55th min ) & RUKAVINA ( 37th min ). For Rayo their consolation goal came in the 10th min via BUENO, that was all they could do from there onwards, totally eliminated from the field.
|Osasuna - Levante|
OSASUNA finally managed a victory & in a big way with their 4 - 0 final result against LEVANTE. The goals came steadily in the late part of the 2º half & deservedly with ARMENTEROS opening a bit earlier in the 55th min, LAMAH in the 83rd min, TIMOR in the 89th min & NINO in the 90th. This victory will ease the pressure at Osasuna for at least this coming week.
REAL MADRID needed a win to stay in touch for the League & go into next weeks "Clasico" against Barça in good shape. They managed both with a comfortable 5 - 1 win over DEPORTIVO A CORUÑA. Real Coach Mourinho gave Arbeloa & Alonso a rest ( although Xabi came on in the 2 half ), putting Ramos in the right wing position, Varane in the habitual Ramos spot & Modric in for Xabi.
Deportivo scored first via RIKI in the 15th min after some great outside the square touch Football but they did very little else from here until the end. CRISTIANO RONALDO scored a HAT-TRICK with goals in the 22nd min (penalty), 43rd min & 83rd min ( penalty). The other goals came from DI MARIA in the 38th min & PEPE from a Xabi Alonso free kick which he headed home in the 65th min. Kaka came on in the 2º half for Ozil & showed signs of his improvement as Coach Mourinho rewarded his efforts with a run tonight.
Special mention to the great effort & game from Khedira & once again young defender Verane who shows class every time he gets his opportunity.
RCD ESPANYOL lost again tonight this time to ATLETICO DE MADRID 0 - 1 with the latter retaining the second spot on the Spanish League classification table. Atletico went into this clash without Falcao who is injured but managed to maintain their good form with an acceptable game although not brilliant. Their only goal came from a Juan Fran pass that found the head of RAUL GARCIA in the 30th min.
Espanyol then attacked more & looked for the equalizer but Atletico held firm & did their job of securing three important away points. Alarms at Espanyol!
