SPANISH FOOTBALL LIGA ROUND 5 TUESDAY NIGHT FINAL RESULTS

Two matches scheduled tonight to kick-off Round 5 mid-week Spanish Football Liga action. Quick resume of events, the goalscorers & the final results.

Spanish Liga Soccer 2014-2015

Real Madrid hosted Elche & started with goalkeeper Keylor Navas, Illaramendi & Isco. Obviously Casillas, Modric & Benzema were given a rest but this did not change the fact that Real Madrid dominated proceedings with a 5 - 1 final result & win. Cristiano Ronaldo scored four goals, that is, the Portuguese got himself another HAT-TRICK, simply extraordinary. 

The "newcomers", Illaramendi & Isco had an excellent match, while Navas was not troubled except for a penalty - & the only Elche goal - given in the 15th min that Edu Albacer converted & that the Real Madrid goalie could not really do much about it. Real Madrid was only really pushed by Elche the first 19 mins with the visitors doing little more thereafter except some loose shooting. The goals fell in the following order:
  • Edu Albacer 15th min (penalty), 0 - 1
  • Gareth Bale 19th min , 1 - 1
  • Cristiano Ronaldo 27th min (penalty), 2 - 1
  • Cristiano Ronaldo 31st min , 3 - 1
  • Cristiano Ronaldo 80th min (penalty), 4 - 1
  • Cristiano Ronaldo 91st min 
Good game from James Rodriguez who served goal passes along with Bale who scored himself with a header & served goal insistences as well. Toni Kroos was solid & hit the bar, while Marcelo was active along his wing all night. 

Liga 2014-2015

Big Galicia region clash between Celta de Vigo & Deportivo A Coruña who share a fierce historical rivalry. The victory tonight went 2 - 1 to Celta de Vigo after Larrivey broke the deadlock with a 74th min goal which he headed from a corner. Before this Celta went ahead first in the 3rd min through a Nolito goal, but Deportivo equalized in the 55th min thanks to Isaac Cuenca. Climatic finish when Deportivo was awarded a penalty in the 87th min but Medunjanin had his shot stopped by Celta goalie Sergio Alvarez to give his team the three points.

More Spanish Liga Round 5 mid-week games tomorrow.

SPANISH FOOTBALL RUMOURS | MUNIR & SAMI KHEDIRA

Interesting news coming out of Spain in reference to possible signing interests for players from Spain s two biggest Football Clubs, FC Barcelona & Real Madrid.

transfer rumours 2015

The first news piece comes from France - "Le10Sport1" - picked up locally by Spanish Sports media. According to the French source Paris St Germain & Bayern Munich have set their aim & target on young Barça sensation Muñir. Apparently the players Club value is around the 12M€ mark thus making the Footballer a bargain. Obviously FC Barcelona has the option of bettering the players contract & economic conditions which would make it harder for interested third parties to swoop away the youngster. In fact, the news piece could be a "planned strategy" from within the Munir "inner circle" to force FC Barcelona to negotiate & better the conditions of the player. Stay tuned!

Arsenal interest

The other news piece comes from England. The unofficial statement is that Arsenal FC has reached agreement with Real Madrid to transfer German International midfielder Sami Khedira in the "Winter Market". The transfer fee being said is 14M€ & its an expressed petition from Arsenal Coach Wenger. Stay tuned!

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

SPANISH LIGA FOOTBALL 2014-2015

Real Sociedad played Almeria this midday & lost 1 - 2. Deserved win for Almeria which put in a good performance against an irregular Real Sociedad. The goals for Almeria came from De la Bella (own goal) in the 29th min & Maura Dos Santos in the 50th min. 

Almeria then went down to 10 men when Dubarbier was sent off which allowed Real Sociedad to react & manage their only goal from Castro in the 84th min. Minutes later Almeria lost another man - Ximo Navarro - to a red card in the 87th min.

SPANISH LIGA FOOTBALL 2014-2015

Cordoba hosted Sevilla FC & lost 1 - 3. Solid performance from Sevilla with effective counter-attacking, physical muscle & good tactical discipline. The goals for Sevilla came from Bacca in the 7th min, M´Bia in the 71st min & Bacca (penalty). The goal for Cordoba came from Borja Garcia in the 82nd min.

SPANISH LIGA FOOTBALL 2014-2015

Villarreal won Madrid Club Rayo Vallecano 4 - 2 after a remarkable comeback effort being 2 goals down. Rayo Vallecano was all clear sailing with goals from Kakuta in the 21st min & later Bueno in the 28th min. However, things went wrong & Villarreal commenced their comeback charge with goals from Epinosa in the 32nd min, Musacchio 63rd min & two from Vietto in the 74th & 87th min.


Liga 2014-2015 Spain


Goal feast at Levante which hosted FC Barcelona & lost 0 - 5. Neymar scored first for Barça in the 33rd min from a brilliant Messi pass, but things go complicated when Levante lost player Vnytra to a red card (a harsh decision) in the 40th min after committing a penalty. Messi then failed & missed but the damage was already done to the home team.

The flood gates then opened for Barça & Ratikic smashed - must see - the second from outside the box in the 44th min. The third goal came from Sandro in the 56th min from another Messi pass, Pedro got the fourth in the 63rd min & Messi scored the fifth with a nice chip over the keeper. 

Another win for Barça in Liga, four out of four, & current leaders.

MONDAY NIGHT ROUND 4 GAME:
Getafe - Valencia CF

SPANISH FOOTBALL LIGA ROUND 4 SATURDAY FINAL RESULTS

Spanish Football Liga action today with Round 4 games scheduled. Here are all the final results along with the goalscorers.

SPANISH LIGA FOOTBALL 2014-2015

Round 4 of Liga started with the Friday night match between Elche & Eibar. The game & final result went to the visitors 0 - 2 with goals from Dani Garcia in the 2nd min & Albentosa in the 41st min. Eibar strong so early in the season.

SPANISH LIGA FOOTBALL 2014-2015

Real Madrid travelled to Deportivo A Coruña & found themselves again with a goal feast. The final result was 2 - 8 that included a HAT-TRICK from Cristiano Ronaldo. The goals came raining down in the following manner: 

  • Cristiano Ronaldo 29th min, 0 - 1
  • James Rodriguez 36th min, 0 - 2
  • Cristiano Ronaldo 41st min, 0 - 3
  • Medunjamin (penalty) 51st min, 1 - 3

  • Tocho 87th min, 2 - 6
  • Chicharito 88th min, 2 - 7
  • Chicharito 92nd min, 2 - 8
If you can make sure you see the highlights of the game. Most of the goals were of exceptional quality that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. 

Celta gave a scare & won a "doubtful" penalty with Medunjanim converted that put them 1 - 3 in the second half, & Real Madrid then suffered & was put on the back foot for more than 10 mins. Real Madrid Coach had to react & took off Benzema for Illaramendi & later Modric for Isco to put his team back on course. The Gareth Bale fourth calmed things down & then Chicharito on late pulled two amazing goals that will be seen around the globe. Amazing.


SPANISH LIGA FOOTBALL 2014-2015

Third loss for Athletic Club Bilbao after losing 0 - 1 to Granada. The winner came in the 40th min when Colombian Jhon Cordoba took advantage of a terrible mistake by Bilbao midfielder Iturraspe. However, one may think that Bilbao risked today & paid the price by leaving on the bench key players like Rico & De Marcos to give them rest after their mid-week Champions League efforts against Shakhtar.

Bilbao reacted late & attacked but Granada with their advantage defended with teeth & nails. Too late too little.

SPANISH LIGA FOOTBALL 2014-2015

Atletico de Madrid drew 2 - 2 with Celta de Vigo, a result that is not good for them as they watch how their main rivals (Barça, Valencia...) open up a good gap in the Liga table. Atletico de Madrid created numerous goal opportunities but the Celta goalie Sergio Alvarez was incredible tonight making some amazing saves. In fact he was his team best player & should be praise on his trip back home. 

Atletico was without Mandzukic but this was not an excuse. Celta was sticky & difficult tonight & their goals came from a remarkable - almost indescribable - back heel by Hernandez in the 19th min & a penalty in the 53rd min that Nolito converted. Overall very effective for their relative little chances. 

Atletico de Madrid got their goals from set pieces - free kick & corner - with Miranda equalizing in the 31st min & Godin heading home a header in the 41st min. From here & onwards Atletico kept on "smashing" into the Celta goalie Sergio who stopped more than a dozen clear goal chances. Shared points.

CURRENTLY IN PLAY:
Espanyol - Malaga

SPANISH FOOTBALL TEAMS WEDNESDAY FINAL RESULTS | UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

The two last remaining Spanish Football Clubs with UEFA Champions League duties played tonight with the following final results & goalscorers.

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2014-2015

FC Barcelona hosted Apoel Nicosia in their Group F opener. The final result was a 1 - 0 victory to Barça & more importantly, the three points. Barça Coach Luis Enrique changed his team around & started with:

Ter Stegen; Alves, Pique, Bartra, Adriano; Sergi Roberto, Xavi, Samper; Messi, Neymar & Munir.

FC Barcelona kept to their style of possession Football while Apoel held back to defend & wait for counter-attacking opportunities. No surprises throughout the match with Barça attacking & creating chances almost getting to the monotonous stages. Apoel created some chances in the second half but failed to convert.

The only - & winning - goal came in the 28th min when Gerard Pique headed home a fixed play free kick. 

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2014-2015

Celebrations at Bilbao as Athletic Club returns to Champions League after a 16 year wait. Bilbao hosted Shakhtar Donetsk in their Group H match & played out a 0 - 0 final result.

The Athletic Club Bilbao starting line-up was:


Iraizoz; De Marcos, Gurpegi, Laporte, Balenziaga; Iturraspe, Mikel Rico, Beñat; Muniain, Ibai Gomez & Aduriz.

From the Bilbao point of view, 24 crosses into the goal area & no ball converted into goal, apart from this, with only 3 true goal chance-attempts all in the second half. This sums up the Bilbao night. Shakhtar on the other hand defended very well & won in the ball possession area- 54% - having their own very clear goal opportunities as well but failing to convert. Bilbao suffered to hold them out.

Seen it all after 90 mins, perhaps deserved result & draw.
