Part 2: How the Spanish La Liga turned out last weekend

There was not one star of the show during the game as all the four goals were scored by different players. Good news for Espanyol was the fact that they won; however, it did not come without a bad news as the Argentinean striker Osvaldo suffered from an injury later during the game and with his hamstring pulled, he is going to be out of action for two long months.

Right behind Espanyol in the Spanish La Liga are the other Madrid side Atletico Madrid who suffered the worst defeat of the season by Hercules as the Spanish underdogs won the game 4-1. Hercules are having an extraordinary season especially with David Trezeguet being the main man up front. The former Juventus star found himself on the score board again as he scored the ninth goal of the season. Hercules were winning the game in the first 45 minutes as they scored four goals in the first half only.

Michael Laudrop’s Mallorca are proving to be tough at home once again this season. However, while being away from home they usually come up with draws or losses. They had to visit Pamplona this weekend and they only managed to get a draw and moved level on points with Atletico Madrid and Getafe. Almeria were the opponents for Mallorca and both the teams have managed to score 19 goals against each other in the last three games that they have played. However, they ended the game in a goalless draw and now both of them are going to face each other in May and it is definitely going to be a game to watch.

Athletic Club also managed to keep in touch with the European spot in the Spanish La Liga. The Spaniards managed to draw the game in the 93rd minute as Javi Martinez scored a goal to give his side one point and the game ended 1-1 in Malaga. On the other hand, it was a good day for Malaga as their newly signed defender Martin Demichelis found the back of the net in his first game ever for the Spanish club.

Sevilla also had a good weekend as they moved level in terms of points with Athletic Bilbao. They are now only a point behind Mallorca as they won the game 2-3 away from home to Real Sociedad. Sevilla have now officially started the year 2011 positively as they have won all the games in the New Year.

Real Zaragoza’s defeat have pushed them back to the relegation zone. On the other hand, Sporting Gijon managed to take one point against Racing Santander as Castro scored a goal during the injury time to make the score line 1-1. Now Sporting are only a point ahead of Almeria on goal difference and standing just a point ahead of Zaragoza who are at the bottom of the Spanish La Liga table.
