Goals from Pipita and Cuchu

Real Madrid took the advantage from Barcelona derby defeat to Espanyol by crushing Real Betis 6-1. An amazing feat about this game is that all seven goals scored were all in the first half.

It took Madrid just seven minutes to open the floodgates when their leading scorer Gonzalo HIGUAIN, who missed out in last week's 4-0 thrashing of Sporting Gijon on a day when RAUL and Klass Jan HUNTERLAAR took the plaudits, netted.

Raul, who last week became Madrid's record goal scorer, won an aerial challenge to put Pipita through, and the in-form striker coolly rounded RICARDO before slotting home his 14th league goal of the season.

Inter Milan extended their lead at the top of Serie A to 12 points thanks to a narrow win away to Bologna. Esteban CAMBIASSO put Inter ahead in the 57th minute when he was on hand to volley the ball in from point blank range, from a MAICON corner.

In the Bundesliga, Diego KLIMOWICZ had mixed of feeling days after his club Bochum drew Arminia Bielefeld 1-1. He scored his club goal in the 30th minute but he was sent off for committing a needless foul four minutes from time.

Higuai really improves very well. He is now can be creative force for Real Madrid. He is also can play as wing or forward. He should play for argentina, he deserve a call up.

Sir Raul

Fernando CAVENAGHI has been pretty much quite lately. The last time that I can recall of him scoring (prior to the last weekend) was almost a month ago. For Bordeaux, they could not have asked for a better time from him to break his silence in front of the net.

CAVENAGHI headed a last-gasp leveller for Laurent BLANC side to earn a point, against St Etienne. The results meant that Bordeaux remain in fifth in the league standings.

it is important for Real Madrid the Pipita´s goal, cause wihtout Huntelaar, Real Madrid will need the best performance of Pipita during the Liverpool´s games.
