Inter Cruz Towards Serie A Title & Other

Inter Milan took another significant step towards retaining their Serie A title with 2-1 win over Cagliari.

Patrick VIEIRA got on the ball in the 21st minute, took a quick look up and put a defence splitting ball over that landed in the path of Julio CRUZ who wriggled free of defender Paolo BIANCO to head in.

MATERAZZI scored Inter’s second and later on during stoppage time, Davide BIONDINI scored a consolation goal Cagliari.

In Spain, Real Madrid also move closer towards winning their second successive La Liga crown with 3-0 win over Athletic Bilbao.

Much to my surprise is to see Javier SAVIOLA named in the starting line up and he did not disappoint anyone at all. He strike a loose ball with his left foot in the 14th minute to give Real the lead.

Dutchman ROBBEN scored to put Real 2-0 and later on substitute Gonzalo HIGUAIN to score his fifth goal of the season.

Real Mallorca put a dent on Racing Santander’s hope of qualifying for the Champions League with 3-1 win.

Already 1-0 up, Mallorca increased their lead through Oscar TREJO in the 82nd minute, sliding a left-footed shot into the net from the center of the penalty area.

Racing pulls one back through a powerful penalty strike courtesy of Aldo DUSCHER but a goal from Daniel GUIZA sealed the victory for Mallorca.

While Atlético Madrid were held to a 1-1 draw with Getafe with Kun AGUERO scoring the equalizer for them in the 39th minute. With this result, Atlético still remains in contention for next season Champions League at fourth place just two points ahead of Racing Santander.

Recently crowned Portuguese champion FC Porto trash Guimaraes 5-0 away with Ernesto FARIAS scoring in the 77th minute.

While Leandro ROMAGNOLI scored a penalty in Sporting Lisbon 2-1 win over Maritimo.

Hector BRACAMONTE scored an equalizer for FC Moscow against Spartak Moscow in Russia.
