Round 6 kicked off with the Friday Night game between Real Betis & Malaga FC. The final score 1 - 0 to Betis with a goal header from Joaquin in the 24th min. Malaga was not happy with the referee decisions as they claimed a penalty not called.
Eibar hosted Real Sociedad & won 2 - 0. Good match from both but the luck seemed to be on the side of the locals. Goals from Bebe in the 56th min & an own goal from Real Sociedad midfielder Illaramendi in the 65th min. Pedro Leon missed a penalty for Eibar early in the match.
FC Barcelona travelled to Real Sporting de Gijon without Messi who is injured. Barça did fine without the Argentinian astro winning 0 - 5. FC Barcelona was superior to Gijon & was even more so after Sporting de Gijon went down to 10 men in the 2º half when Lora was sent off with a red card. Goals fell in the following order:
- Luis Suarez 28th min
- Rafinha 31st min
- Neymar 80th min
- Arda Turan 84th min
- Neymar 87th min
Athletic Club Bilbao defeated Sevilla FC 3 - 1. Its the 4th straight win for Bilbao which are on a roll. Bilbao deserved the win as Sevilla FC were below past performances. Their only goal came from on-loan player Nasri in the 54th min. The Bilbao goals came from San Jose in the 25th min, Balenziaga in the 65th min & a penalty coverted by Aduriz in the 89th min.
Las Palmas drew 2 - 2 to Real Madrid in a very entertaining match. Las Palmas do put forward a very confident Football style. Touch Football which is pleasing to the eye & very effective in execution as they took their limited chances.
Real Madrid on the other hand created multiple goal occasions & missed the majority, something they later paid for as the Madrid Club could not shut the match. Las Palmas comeback twice with a lax Real Madrid defensive line when they were ahead.
Cristiano Ronaldo was taken off in the 70th min after the Real Madrid second goal & his face was a picture, more so after Las Palmas scored the equalizer.
The goals came in the following order:
- Asensio 33rd min, 0 - 1
- Tana 37th min, 1 - 1
- Benzema 66th min, 1 - 2
- Araujo 84th min , 2 - 2
