SPANISH FOOTBALL ROUND 24 LIGA SUNDAY GAMES RESULTS

Spanish Football action today with four matches scheduled in Round 24 of Liga. Here is a brief summary with all the final scores-results along with all the goalscorers.

Liga Soccer Spain

Granada defeated Real Betis this midday 1 - 0 with a excellent executed goal from Piti in the 31st min. However the news is that the loss by Real Betis puts them further into the "black hole" of the relegation zone,  & possibly playing in the Spanish 2┬║ Division next season. The squad is visibly nervous & it shows in their game with defender Amaya getting a red card through frustration. It is a very critical moment at Real Betis.

Liga

Getafe lost 0 - 3 to Real Madrid in a City derby. Its the ninth loss by Getafe & the home fans were calling for the head of their Coach Luis Garcia. Getafe are dangerously low on the classification table & things are getting complex. 

Real Madrid needed a win to stay in touch with FC Barcelona & Atletico de Madrid on the top of the Liga ladder & did not fail. A relatively comfortable match for the visitors with Cristiano Ronaldo out serving suspension ( 1 match left to go ). The opener came from the player in fashion young Jese in the 5th min. The second came from a magnificent Di Maria cross that Karim Benzema masterfully trapped & scored in the 27th min. The third was a great outside the box shot from Modric in the 66th min. 

RCD Espanyol

Surprise result with the 1 - 2 victory by RCD Espanyol over Athletic Club Bilbao. Its the first home ground loss by Bilbao this season & Espanyol has the three points & the honours.

Evenly fought out encounter with both sides intense & tactical. Espanyol Captain Sergio Garcia put his team ahead early in the 6th min. End to end stuff thereafter until Bilbao defender Gurpegui managed to equalize in the 56th min. The winner came for Espanyol in the 65th min when Colotto scored a "gem". Bilbao got nervous in their attempts to equalizer & forward Aduriz got himself a late red card. 


Sevilla - Valencia

The much anticipated & expected Sevilla FC vs Valencia CF clash ended in a 0 - 0 draw. After watching 90 mins one gets the feeling that a Black Cat or Voodoo was done before the match. Sevilla was extremely unlucky. They missed a penalty taken by Ratikic ( great save by Valencia goalie Alves) & with Valencia down to 10 men from the 50th min, after Ricardo Costa saw his second yellow, Sevilla could not break through. The frustration  sank into Sevilla when they lost a player to a red cardas well, in young Cheryshev. However, the "black magic" part comes from the observation that there seemed up to four penalties committed on Sevilla that the referee did not call. This has lead to post match controversy. 

MONDAY NIGHT ROUND 24 GAME:
Malaga FC - Real Sociedad
