Atletico Madrid get 1-0 win over Espanyol

Feb 25 2013, 3:33am CST | by

Madrid, Feb 25 (IANS) Atletico Madrid remain four points clear of Real Madrid in the second position after a 1-0 win at home to Espanyol in the 25th round of Spain's Primera Liga football.

Madrid, Feb 25 — Atletico Madrid remain four points clear of Real Madrid in the second position after a 1-0 win at home to Espanyol in the 25th round of Spain's Primera Liga football.

Radamel Falcao's first half penalty marked the difference between the two sides here Sunday night, reports Xinhua.

Athletic had taken the lead in the last derby to be played in their San Mames stadium thanks to an Ibai Gomez volley, but with home keeper, Raul Fernandez looking nervous, Antoine Griezmann, Imanol Agirrretxe and Carlos Vela turned the result around.

Athletic can now consider themselves to be in a battle to avoid relegation and will be grateful Valencia fought back from two goals down to take a point from Zaragoza, who have still not won in 2013.

Zaragoza had led through Apono and Helder Postiga, but two goals from Jonas Goncalves gave Valencia a valuable point.

Celta Vigo gave Abel Resino a winning debut as coach thanks to goals from Iago Aspes and Mario Bermejo in a 2-1 win at home to Granada. Celta are still in the relegation zone, but have opened a gap over bottom pair, Deportivo and Mallorca.

Mallorca crashed to a 3-1 defeat at home to Getafe, who came back from a goal down with a Diego Castro penalty and two second half goals from Adrian Colunga.

Betis got their European ambitions back on track with a convincing 3-0 win over a tired looking Malaga, who perhaps paid for their European efforts in midweek. Jorge Molina opened the scoring in the first minute before Mario and Doblan Pabon wrapped up the scoring before the break.

Meanwhile, Valladolid took a surprise 2-1 win away to Rayo Vallecano in a match between two sides who look destined to finish in mid-table.

Rose Ball 2014 In Aid Of The Princess Grace Foundation In Monaco
Football is full of cliches, but they are usually there for a reason. One of the best is, “12 months is a long time in football,” and for AS Monaco, 14 months is even longer. On May 31, 2013, Radamel Falcao was pictured holding the iconic red and white strip of Les Monegasque club, standing in front of the beautiful French Riviera backdrop. Fast forward to this summer, and the player parades have been kept to a minimum, which has cast a doubt over whether Russian billionaire owner Dmitry ...

James Rodriguez, Keylor Navas, Enner Valencia and Javier Mascherano, we knew you were good, but you weren't supposed to be that good. What is a "surprising player"? It is a pretty vague term and could be used to describe pretty much anyone, from the big money players on their biggest stage yet, to the standout players who finally got out of relative anonymity. The players unknown to the world can surpri ...
