Malaga FC hosted Granada complicating the Liga future of the latter by winning 4 - 1. The loss by Granada places them dangerously close to the relegation zone of the ladder while Malaga jumps up the classification into mid-table positions. The goals for Malaga came from Camacho who scored twice (14th & 36th min), Amrabat in the 50th min & Juanmi in the 74th min. Granada got their goal from El Arabi in the 78th min after a terrible clearing mistake from Malaga goalie Willy Caballero. That was his only blemish as the Malaga goalie made some good saves including stopping a penalty.
Elche won Madrid Club Getafe 1 - 0 with a last moment goal in the 93rd min from Boakye. Terrible result for Getafe which is in the relegation area of the ladder, while Elche get some "oxygen" as they too attempt to get far away from the danger.
Sevilla FC hosted RCD Espanyol & won 4 - 1. The locals are full of confidence & are aiming for the valuable Champions League 4th position of the ladder currently held by Athletic Club Bilbao. The win also serves as a spirit booster as they will meet Porto mid-week in the 2º leg Europa League clash with the visitors leading the tie with a goal.
Espanyol have their chances but were ineffective in converting them into goals. Sevilla played well & nailed their "moments" in the following fashion:
- Mbia 18th min
- Gameiro 49th min
- Gameiro 84th min
- Ratikic 89th min
Valladolid managed to pull an important point out of their 0 - 0 draw from visiting Valencia CF. Valencia missed plenty of opportunities to score goals & finally paid dearly for their ineffectiveness. Valladolid goalie Jaime also played an important role for his team saving two one-on-one situations with the Valencia forwards. The earned point takes momentarily Valladolid out of the relegation positions of the classification table.
