Top game of Football between Real Sociedad & Sevilla FC this midday. The final result was a 4 - 3 win for the home team which may have torpedoed the seasons aspirations of Sevilla FC with objectives placed on Champions League ladder places. The goals fell in the following order:
- Agirretxu 15th min, 1 - 0
- Kolodziejczak, 42nd min, 1 - 1
- Xavi Prieto (pen) 47th min, 2 - 1
- Bacca 66th min , 2 - 2
- Gamiero 77 (pen) , 2 - 3
- Arribas (o.g) 81st min, 3 - 3
- Xavi Prieto 89th min, 3 - 4
Athletic Club Bilbao hosted Madrid Club Rayo Vallecano in a "sticky" match that was settled in the final moments by Bilbao forward Aduriz in the 87th min, a feat that we are getting used too from this fine player. Rayo perhaps felt the tiredness of the intense game which saw a drop in their concentration. Said this, Bilbao created numerous goal opportunities & will claim the final 1 - 0 result is deserved.
Villarreal won 1 - 0 a conservative & lacklustre Eibar. The visitors were "ultra" defensive & Vietto broke through in the 71st min to give Villarreal the eventual winner.
Elche hosted Real Madrid to hold out 45 mins before the visitors took full control. The final result 2 - 0 gives Real Madrid a 4º point gap over second placed FC Barcelona on the Liga table.
A game of milestones for Real Madrid members: 500th game for Casillas, 100th game for Coach Carlo Ancelotti & midfielder Illaramendi (on late as substitute). The goals tonight came through Karim Benzema in the 56th min & Cristiano Ronaldo in the 69th min with a header. Top game from Isco again & Pepe was solid in defense.
Elche hoover dangerously close to the relegation zone & will be fighting a different battle the rest of the season in order to survive & stay next season in Liga.
