Elche hosted Levante in the Friday Night game & finished with a 1 - 1 draw. A result which favoured Levante as Elche is dangerously close to the danger-zone relegation area of the table. Elche went ahead in the 62nd min through Boakye but Levante equalized in the 73rd min through Angel.

Granada played Madrid Club Rayo Vallecano & lost 0 - 3. Granada which is also in a dangerous position close to the relegation zone auto-destructed themselves when Brahimi got himself a red card in the 48th min leaving his team down to 10 men. Before this Granada was playing very well & Brahimi hit the "wood-work" in the 48th min.

However, with a man extra Rayo Vallecano took over & the goals followed in the following manner, first with Saul in the 53rd min, Larrivey in the 58th min & Sebas Fernandez in the 85th min. Rayo basically has its place assured for next season in Liga.

Getafe had a do or die match against Malaga FC. The final result 1 - 0 to Madrid Club Getafe which indirectly sent mathematically Real Betis into the Spanish 2º Division for next season. Cruel event as Real Betis had their match at 22.00 hrs & knew previously they had said good-bye to Liga. Malaga was perhaps more "relaxed" because they have their future in Liga secured.

The first goal for Getafe came early in the 7th min from Colunga. After this a very competitive game with red cards to Getafe player Ciprian & red card to Malaga player Angeleri.

An important win to Getafe today but they are still far from securing their Liga future. They are still very much in danger.

Real Madrid hosted the "in danger" Osasuna & won 4 - 0 in a comfortable match keeping their own Liga title aspirations open while they wait for Atletico de Madrid to possibly slip. Real Madrid also had their mind on next Tuesdays vital 2º leg away clash with Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semi-final & rested players like Benzema, Coentrao, Xabi Alonso ( on later ) , Carvajal ( on later ), Gareth Bale & Pepe. Cristiano Ronaldo started, as he looked to pick up rhythm to get to next Tuesday in an optimal playing level.

He did so with 2 goals - from Cristiano Ronaldo - putting him up there around the season 30 goal mark along with Liverpool FC player Luis Suarez as both "fight it" out for the "European Golden Boot". The first goal was a long range driver ( possibly off-side ) in the 6th min & the second another long-range driver in the 51st min. The Portuguese forward was then substituted & the third Real Madrid goal arrived when Di Maria placed a cross onto the head of Sergio Ramos in the 59th min. The fourth came from substitute Carvajal who headed over the Osasuna goalie in the 83rd min from a smart Isco pass.


Real Betis went into their game against Real Sociedad knowing beforehand that earlier victory by Madrid Club Getafe had sent them to the 2º Division next season. Real Sociedad is behind Sevilla FC & needed to win to keep the pressure on for Europe next season.

As one would imagine Real Betis was psychologically affected by their situation & attempted to put in a brave game with their local fans hostile with disappointment. Their efforts went draining out as the match progressed while Real Sociedad took control.

The goal & the eventual winner came from Mexican Carlos Vela from the penalty spot in the 48th min. Later Griezmann hit the post in the 54th min for Real Sociedad. Final result 0 - 1 to Real Sociedad.
