Weekend Round-Up - Some Bad & Good News

Another exciting weekend has just past by but there are a couple of things that I would like to mentioned before that.

First and foremost, from Mundo Albiceleste, our prayers and thoughts goes out to Eduardo of Arsenal after that horrific injury he suffered in that match against Birmingham City. Personally I hope that he will be all right and will recover soon.

Secondly let me congratulate Juande RAMOS for wining the Carling Cup with Tottenham Hotspurs.

In Portugal…

FC Porto maintains their supremacy at the top of the Portuguese Liga with a 3-0 win over Paços de Ferreira.

The goals came from a double strike from Lisandro LOPEZ and plus anther one from Mariano GONZALEZ. Both Lucho GONZALEZ and Ernesto FARIAS were in the starting line up.

In Italy…

Internazionale lead at the top of Serie A has been cut to nine points after Nerazzurri were held to a 1-1 draw against Sampdoria.

It seems like Roberto MANCINI are not enjoying the good times these last few days (after the Champions League encounter with Liverpool) and were perhaps lucky enough to have Hernan CRESPO scoring in the 76th minute for the equalizer.

Inter had Javier ZANETTI, Esteban CAMBIASSO (both starters), Nicolas BURDISSO and Santiago SOLARI (both on the bench) for this game as well.

In Spain…

With Pato ABBONDANZIERI in goal and the defense lynchpin Cata DIAZ inspiring Getafe to a shocking 1-0 win over Real Madrid, Barcelona must know that there is no better chance than this to catch up on the league leaders.

Before that thanks to Jack for sharing with us on the news, as Barca trashed Levante 5-1 with most of the damage coming from Lionel MESSI.

With score line at 1-1, he restored Barca lead with typical solo effort and then became the provider for Samuel ETO’O next two goal before the Cameroonian bagged his hat trick.

Another scorer in La Liga, shall I say an unexpected one is from Fabricio COLOCCINI in Deportivo La Coruna 2-0 win over Espanyol.
