Spanish Soccer

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.

La Liga Soccer

FC Barcelona travelled to Real Sporting de Gijon without Messi who is injured. Barça did fine without the Argentinian astro winning 0 - 5.

  • Luis Suarez 28th min
  • Rafinha 31st min
  • Neymar 80th min

Spanish Football

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.  

Real Madrid La Liga

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
Great result for Las Palmas which was rewarded for their bravery & consistency, while a big slip for Real Madrid which allows FC Barcelona to shut them on the ladder after they won their game earlier today against Gijon. The difference is now just 1º point between Real Madrid & Barcelona.

More Round 6 La Liga games tomorrow.


Spanish Football is celebrating Round 5 of La Liga this mid-week. Games are spread over the three days ( Tues - Thurs ) with today scheduling the top level matches. The widget on the right side of the blog gives you all the results, here we will summarize the today´s two big matches.

La Liga Spanish Football

Real Madrid drew 1 - 1 to Villarreal in a surprise result. Real Madrid were not as sharp as past games while Villarreal is a good team that pushed the home side tonight. Some of the local big names were below par like Cristiano Ronaldo & Bale, while Real Madrid also missed Modric & Casemiro out for this clash. 

The first goal came through a penalty that Villarreal Captain Bruno converted in the 45th min after Sergio Ramos hand-balled in the goal area. Previously to this Real Madrid lost Marcelo to injury.

Sergio Ramos made up for his "mistake" in the 47th min when he headed the equalizer goal from a corner. From here Real Madrid attempted to make a heroic effort to grab the 3 points but Villarreal held firm to secure the draw, especially a Sergio Asenjo save from a Morata header.

Slip at the "Santiago Bernabeu".

La Liga Soccer

The other Top Liga game between FC Barcelona & Atletico Madrid ended in a 1 - 1 draw. The first half went to Barça´s favour with more ball control & chances. It was FC Barcelona which scored first with a Ratikic header in the 40th min. 

The "moment" came when Messi was substituted injured. Barcelona lost momentum & Atletico brought on Fernando Torres & Correa. Both interchanged touches in the 60th min & Correa scored the equalizer

Both teams then attempted the winner but fell short.

Names to mention, Iniesta & Pique outstanding for Barça, while Neymar was non-existent. For Atletico the defenders Godin, Savic & Juan Fran were solid & excellent. 


Round 4 of La Liga continued today with 4 scheduled matches. Here are all the final results along with the goalscorers.

Spanish Liga Soccer

Entertaining game between Osasuna & Celta de Vigo that ended in a 0 - 0 draw. Lots of goal opportunities, especially for Celta which was not able to finish them off. Shared points.

La Liga

Atletic Club Bilbao defeated 2 - 1 Valencia CF. Crisis at Valencia which sits at the bottom of the Liga classification table without a victory. Terrible start to the season from Valencia which may see heads roll in coming days.

Although Valencia CF got ahead early in the 1st min through Medran, Bilbao reacted through an inspired Aduriz who scored in the 21st & 24th min to secure the victory. The Valencia defence did not help either, very bad today. 

Spanish Football Liga

Villarreal managed a worked & deserved 2 - 1 victory over Real Sociedad. The home side started strong with more intensity & were rewarded with two goals from Sansone ( 21st & 24th min ). Real Sociedad finally reacted and managed to pull one back in the 34th min through Yuri. From here a few more chances but Villarreal held strong.

Spanish Soccer La Liga

RCD Espanyol went down 0 - 2 to Real Madrid. It´s the 16th straight win for Coach Zidane equalling the record held by Pep Guardiola when with Barcelona. A worked victory for Real Madrid, without Cristiano Roanldo nor Bale, & early in the match without Casemiro who received a knock & was substituted for Toni Kroos.

RCD Espanyol had their chances & put Real Madrid under pressure a few times but keeper Kiko Casilla was great with some outstanding interventions.

The goals came from James Rodriguez who started today with his 45+2 min goal, along with the second goal from a Lucas Vazquez pass that Karim Benzema knocked into the back of the net in the 70th min. 

Alaves - Deportivo A Coruña


La Liga keeps advancing with Round 4 games scheduled for today, Saturday. Plenty of goals scored so far so here are all the final results along with all the goalscorers.

Spanish Football & Round 4 kicked off with the Friday night game between Real Betis & Granada which finished in a 2 - 2 drew. Granada had the match covered with two goals ( Gonzalez 12th & Bueno 32nd min ), but Betis came back with two goals from Bueno ( 35th & 60th min ). The fact that Granada was down to 10 men did not help them, plus a double save ( penalty ) from Betis goalie Adan kept Betis alive.

FC Barcelona starting 11 team photo vs Leganes

Newly promoted Madrid Club Leganes hosted FC Barcelona & were defeated 1 - 5. Barça was absolutely dominante on all fronts, playing with 3 Central defenders & Messi was running a riot. Added to this offensive posture Leganes defenders had a terrible day attempting to stop Suarez & Neymar who were very active & scored.

Here are all the goals:

  • Messi 14th min, 0 - 1
  • Luis Suarez 30th min, 0 - 2
  • Neymar 43rd min, 0 - 3
  • Messi 54th min (penalty) , 0 - 4
  • Rafinha 63rd min, 0 - 5
  • Pires 79th min, 1 - 5
The Rafinha 5th goal for Barça was a cracker!

Griezmann Atletico de Madrid

Atletico de Madrid defeated Real Sporting de Gijon 5 - 0 with a brilliant 1º half that shut the door for the visitors. With mid-week Liga in mind Atletico Coach Simeone made changes in the second half, including Fernando Torres who scored two goals.

Griezmann was outstanding with two fabulous goals, along with Gameiro who scored another beautiful piece. Correo came on mid 2º half & was outstanding. 

The goals fell in the following order:
  • Griezmann 1st min, 1 - 0
  • Gameiro 4th min, 2 - 0
  • Griezmann 30th min, 3 - 0
  • Fernando Torres 71st min, 4 - 0
  • Fernando Torres (penalty) 90th min , 5 - 0
Spanish Football

Eibar managed a 1 - 1 drew against Sevilla FC. The visitors will be disappointed as they could not capitalise with Eibar down to 9 men. Sevilla got ahead first in the 26th min through Vietto, to see later Pedro Leon equalize in the 63rd min.

Las Palmas 1 (Momo 9th min) - Malaga FC 0
