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.

Nov 4 2014 6:06pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool side fought valiantly at the Bernabeu but ultimately fell to Spanish giants Real Madrid 1-0.  It was a far better result than the 3-0 defeat for Liverpool when the two met at Anfield when Rodgers fielded a stronger squad.  In spite of the positive display, he was still hammered in the back pages for resting many key members to stay fresh for their pivotal Premier League match against Chelsea on the weekend.  Arsene Wenger should b ...

Slowly and surely they are getting the season back on track, improvements can be seen under new boss Leandro Jardim, and the five wins this season—they have played one game more—is as good as Paris Saint-Germain.
