RCD ESPANYOL & SEVILLA FC played yesterday night their game that ended in a 2 - 2 draw. Sevilla managed the draw in the very last moment with a NEGREDO goal in the 91st min. Sevilla were not happy at all with the referee after unjustly sending off Sevilla forward Reyes after taking a free-kick without permission. Sevilla was down to 10 men from the 35th min & that was a handicap that put them behind the 8 ball.
Espanyol scored first via VERDU with a penalty in the 12th min, that was equalized by another penalty that RAKITIC converted in the 23rd min. From here Espanyol dominated & SIMAO got them ahead in the 60th min to see the victory slip in the last moment.
MALAGA FC put on a show for their home crowd winning 4 - 0 GRANADA. The goals came from JOAQUIN in the 27th min, SAVIOLA in the 33rd min, CAMACHO in the 75th min & SANTA CRUZ in the 85th min.

The game ended in a 1 - 1 draw but the goals came in the last "crazy 5 minutes" when Getafe got ahead via LAFITA in the 86th min & then Real Sociedad equalized in the last moment via CARLOS MARTINEZ in the +90 th min.
Real Madrid managed to solve their big problems defensively thanks to the individual talents of players that scored in the crucial moments of the game. BENZEMA scored from an excellent Callejon pass in the 13th min, then OZIL scored from a Benzema back heel pass in the 44th min & the winner was a brilliant OZIL free-kick in the 72nd min.
