MALAGA FC suffered a defeat at home to Madrid Football Club RAYO VALLECANO. Rayo scored two goals via PITI ( 10th & 60th min) who got his double, while the Malaga goal came from defender DEMICHELIS in the 49th min. Final result 1 - 2
VALENCIA CF needed a moral boosting win & they managed this against ATLETICO DE MADRID 2 - 0 inflicting the visitors their first defeat of the season. The visitors took advantage of their opportunities with a cracker for SOLDADO in the 19th min & NELSON VALDEZ in the 95th min.
However, Atletico played better overall & were unlucky. They claimed two penalties on Falcao that were not called & missed some important opportunities. For the visitors it was the type of match that does not reward the excellent effort put forward on the night. Valencia on the other hand would have been happy to have gotten the three points under any circumstance.
