SPANISH FOOTBALL - LA LIGA - ROUND 25/ 2008 SUNDAY GAMES RESULT

Big day in Round 25 Sunday games with plenty of goals continuing
from yesterday, & Fc Barcelona putting pressure on League leaders
Real Madrid with a bulldozing win & cutting the lead to 2ºpoints after

the latter lost! Here are the results , scorers & images.





















ATLETICO DE MADRID
is sinking, since their loss to Real Madrid few

weeks back they have not been able to lift themselves. Today away to
OSASUNA they lost 3-1 & their Euro aspirations for next season are in
danger. Once
again the defense proved to be the big problem along
with a less than creative midfield that made errors & had no answers.
Osasuna started strong & rocked Atletico with two quick goals in the 2nd
& 6th min by SOLA & VELA (pictured above). The only goal for Atletico

came from FORLAN ( below) with a 30 mt pile driver , but that effort
meant little after Osasuna scored the third goal via HECTOR FONT
in the 76th min.
Disaster for Atletico, a real dilema for them.


















DEPORTIVO
grabbed some desperately needed points with its
2-0 victory over ESPANYOL. The Espanyol case is similiar to the
Atletico situation as they are a carbon copy of bad play & losses.
Deportivo defender COLOCCINI (below)got them ahead in the
17th min followed by another in the 24th by LAFITA. Those 2º
goals were
enought.
























MURCIA lost by a solitary goal against VALLADOLID, due to the
40th min goal by Valladolid inform forward LLORENTE. Final
score 0-1.


















MALLORCA
& REAL BETIS shared the points with a 1- 1
draw. Scorers were VARELA in the 56th min for Mallorca
& EDU ( below) in the 70th min. Just result.















VILLAREAL managed to consolidate its Euro position with a good
away 1-2 win against ATHLETIC DE BILBAO. Bilbao started
strongly with LLORENTE scoring in the 4th min, but then Villareal
gradually got back & finally got through with two goals from
GUILLE
FRANCO
in the 65th min & CAPDEVILA in the 83rd min.





















Like last nights Sevilla - Zaragoza game, the FC BARCELONA
vs last placed LEVANTE was a one way street. Barça won
5-1 with its forward & midfield stars coming nicely into form &
put more
pressure on Real Madrid in their neck to neck race for
the top spot.



















FC Barcelona started the steam roller going in the 14th min via
a XAVI goal, but Levante got a penalty in the 41st which they
converted thanks to RIGA. But it ended here, & the MESSI &
SAMUEL ETO´O show then got underway with Messi scoring in
the 44th min, then Eto´o ( thanks to outstanding Messi passes)
scored Barça next three goals in the 56th, 62th & 87th min giving
the forward a
HAT - TRICK.
Looks like Barça is getting its act together just in the right moment
& they are keeping alive hopes in the 3 competitions they are still
very active: Champions, Spanish Cup & now very much so "La
Liga".




















RACING DE SATANDER got the 3ºpoints against ALMERIA
with the solitary goal from TCHITE in the 6th min. Almeria
attempted to get back & lost 2 men with Red Cards in their efforts,
but the 1-0 scoreline stood stil until the end.

















The above image of UCHE scoring in the 65th min is the moment that sent
shivers down all Real Madrid fans. REAL MADRID lost 0-1 at home & is now
only 2º points ahead of this nearest rival Fc Barcelona. This opens up the
Championship & it promises to be a cliff hanger, the pressure is mounting &
Madrid is feeling it.
Real Madrid had chances but did not convert & the mistakes are payed dearly,
Robben , Raul , Guti, Van Nistelrooy & Baptista all had chances but were left
there, just chances.

Will Real Madrid choke like Barça did last year? Over confidence?
