SPANISH LIGA FOOTBALL ROUND 13 SUNDAY GAMES RESULTS

Spanish Football Liga continued today with Round 13 marked by the tragic events of clashing Club supporters that lead to the eventual death of a 43 year old man. Spanish Football is in shock & grieving the death of a Deportivo A Coruña supporter when Depor visiting fans clashed with local Atletico de Madrid radicals 3 hours before kick-off time.

The brutal violence near the streets of the "Vicente Calderon Stadium" finished with numerous injuries,  & a Deportivo supporter beaten & then thrown into the nearby river that crosses the city of Madrid & the Atletico de Madrid stadium. The man was rescued 15 min after being thrown & floating in the water with very severe head injuries, hypothermia & in a cardiac-arrest. He was later revived & taken to hospital were he died 5 hours later. The incidents were apparently pre-planned by opposing radical groups who differ not only with Club loyalty but with political views (extremists). 

Everyone connected to Spanish Football & society has condemned the actions & the violent events. Mindless & barbaric behaviour of a "few" which has blemished the Sport, but unfortunately springs from a "sick" society in "crisis". An ongoing phenomena seen throughout World Soccer that shocks but contiguously shows its ugly head.

With the above dark & sad background of the terrible pre-match events the Atletico de Madrid vs Deportivo A Coruña match went ahead after a suspension was seriously considered.  The final result was a 2 - 0 win for Atletico with a less than menacing Deportivo. The two goals for At. Madrid came from Saul with a 43rd min header & a 55th min Turan Arda goal, who was also brilliant today leading his side.

Cordoba lost 0 - 2 to Villarreal & continue to hoover at the bottom end of the Liga classification table. Villarreal deserved the win, well earned & with their two goals from Vietto in the 24th min & Uche in the 70th min.

Valencia FC lost 0 - 1 to FC Barcelona in the very last moment in tonights big Liga match. Entertaining game with both teams at a very intense level that created goal chances at both sides, including outstanding goalkeeping saves (Barça Claudio Bravo & Valencia Alves) & with disallowed / missed goals (Barça Luis Suarez & Messi). 

Very even encounter the full 90 mins with Valencia putting in an enormous defensive effort that nearly neutralized the Barça forward line fire-power, until the 93rd min when Sergi Busquets fired home a loose ball earlier stopped by Valencia goal Alves. A cliff hanger with Valencia leaving disappointed as they were perhaps punished too harshly. From a Barcelona perspective, great effort to never give in & keep looking for the winner until the end.
