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.

Manchester United close out Week 8 of the 2013/14 Premier League on Monday night when they travel to the Hawthorns to face the in-form West Bromwich Albion. The Baggies started the season in shaky fashion and were odds-on for relegation, but their recent resurgence has seen them climb the table impressively, chalking up three wins in their last four. The same can be said for Louis van Gaal’s new-look Red Devils, too, so something’s got to give in the Midlands.   Date: Monday, October 20 Ti ...

Michael Carrick's Experience Will Boost Manchester United's Premier League Hopes

Oct 14 2014 4:15pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Ask a Manchester United fan to list the club's greatest players and it's unlikely Michael Carrick will crop up. It's not that he hasn't represented United with distinction. It's just that he's competing with Sir Bobby Charlton, George Best, Denis Law, Duncan Edwards, Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo. Carrick's role has always been less celebrated. But very few players have had a bigger part ...
