All the matches were played today & all simultaneously at 20.00. Here are all the final results - scores - & the goal scorers.
The city of Barcelona derby finished in RCD Espanyol 0 - FC Barcelona 2. Barcelona will equal the 100 points record in a season held by Real Madrid if they can win the last match of Liga next week. It is an objective set by Barça as the rivalry with Real Madrid historically asks for it.
The goal scorers were Alexis in the 14th min & Pedro in the 86th min
Top match between Real Sociedad & Real Madrid that finished in a heroic 3 - 3 draw with comeback from Real Sociedad. The draw allows Valencia CF to hold the Champions League 4th points with a 2 point advantage, but the draw effort & point allows Real Sociedad the "Champions League" option if they win next week & if Valencia CF slips.
The locals played with their hearts & came back all the time to deserve the result which could have been more favourable had they managed to convert the numerous occasions they had & had Real Madrid Diego Lopez not made all the great saves he did.
Real Madrid played without suspended Cristiano Ronaldo & gave palyers like Kaka, Callejon, Marcelo, Carvalho & Albiol a run. The goals from Real Madrid came from Higuain in the 6th min, Callejon in the 57th min & Khedira in the 80th min. For Real Sociedad Xavi Prieto scored a penalty in the 64th min, Griezmann in the 78th min & Xabi Prieto again in the 93rd min.
A Club fighting for its Liga life, Celta of Vigo kept their slim hopes alive with a vital away win with 0 - 2 result against Real Valladolid. Cabral in the 28th min & Aspas via a penalty in the 56th min gave them three points that will take their future to the wire next week.
Atletico de Madrid finished their game with Real Mallorca 0 - 0 & a lost opportunity for the latter to get points in their almost "impossible" attempt to avoid relegation. A game with little Football & one can say boring that was a punishment for Mallorca that goes into the last game of this season with a must win attempt & see how others finish in their games.
Osasuna made a great comeback to win Sevilla FC 2 - 1 & secure their place mathematically in Liga for next season. Sevilla got ahead first with a superb goal from Negredo in the 50th min, but Osasuna answered with a brilliant equalizer from Puñal in the 63rd min & Cejudo in the 79th min.
Real Betis won 4 - 0 Real Zaragoza to get themselves into Europa League options, while condemning Zaragoza to a must win game next week & see how others finish to avoid relegation. The fate of Zaragoza is not in their hands after this severe defeat tonight.
The goals came from Castro, 2 x Pabon & Molina
