Real Madrid had their mind on next weeks Champions League return match against AC Roma & left same "under the cloud" players: Marcelo, Bale, James, Kroos & Modric , on the bench. The first two would later get a run in their 7 - 1 victory over Celta de Vigo. All the damaged was done in the second half when it rained goals, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring 4 goals - another HAT-TRICK to his name.
Celta managed a solitary goal against the grain of play when the Real Madrid was caught wrong footed defensively while attacking to which Celta forward Aspas grabbed a long ball & chipped over goalie Navas. Here is the list & order of all the goal scored:
- Pepe 40th min, 1 - 0
- Cristiano Ronaldo 49th min, 2 - 0
- Cristiano Ronaldo 57th min, 3 - 0
- Aspas 61st min, 3 - 1
- Cristiano Ronaldo 63rd min, 4 - 1
- Cristiano Ronaldo 75th min, 5 - 1
- Jese Rodriguez 76th min, 6 - 1
- Gareth Bale 80th min, 7 -1
Surprise result after 4th placed Villarreal lost 0 - 1 to Las Palmas. The winner came in the 29th min through David Garcia which turned out to finally be enough for Las Palmas. Villarreal tried to turn the result around but kept bouncing off a more determined visiting team.
Worked match by both sides with the final result being Getafe 1 - Sevilla FC 1. The midfield stalemate was broken in the 79th min when Banega put Sevilla FC ahead. Getafe fought back to equalize in the 86th min through Velazquez with a spectacular drive into the net. Shared points!
Deportivo A Coruña 3 (Borges, Cartabia, Lucas) - Malaga FC 3 (Charles, Camacho, Arribas- own goal)
