Saturday 18 November 2006

Chelsea 1-0 West Ham
Geremi scores with a lovely free kick into the top corner. Essien hits the post as West Ham hardly threaten. Carlos Tevez is for all intents and purposes a midfielder, but still plays well, providing numerous opportunities that his teammates fail to take advantage of. Chelsea keep pace with United for next week's showdown.

Sheffield United 1-2 Manchester United
A Wayne Rooney double erases an early Keith Gillespie goal. Evra's cross on Man U's second was superb, but paled in comparison to Rooney's spectacular volley. Fergie's side are up three on Chelsea going into the big match on Sunday.

Arsenal 1-1 Newcastle
Fabregas hits the bar for the Gunners, but it is Newcastle who strike first through Kieron Dyer. Arsenal have 26 shots to the Magpies 2 and super-sub (46') Henry finally puts things right when he knocks a free kick off the crossbar and in to salvage a point in the 70th.

Middlesbrough 0-0 Liverpool
Woodgate clears a Crouch header off the line to deny the Reds. Rafael Benitez' side can officially start thinking about that fourth Champions League spot.

Real Madrid 3-1 Racing de Santander
Madrid score through a powerful Sergio Ramos header in the 5th, a patented left-footed Jose Antonio Reyes strike in the 58th, and a Mahamadou Diarra tap-in in the 71st. A comedic goal celebration sees Ruud Van Nistelrooy tugging at Diarra's head before slamming him to the ground and falling hard on top of the Malian midfielder. Garay answers back for Racing in the 76th and Iker Casillas is called on time and again to preserve the win. Madrid are on 23, two behind leaders Sevilla. Barca is also on 23 and plays Sunday.

Sevilla 3-0 Valencia
Escude scores the first on a low drive off an indirect free kick. Luis Fabiano makes it two on a lovely through ball from Daniel Alves. Fredi Kanoute finishes the rout with a cheeky tap-in after controlling nicely in the area. Sevilla are in first on 25 with Barca playing on Sunday.

Empoli 0-0 AC Milan
AC Milan continue to collapse after a bright start to the season. Hitting the post on numerous occasions, the best the Rossoneri can do is salvage a point and avoid another defeat. Empoli hang in 4th, as Milan are 19 points off the pace and might do well to grab a Champions League spot.

Cagliari 1-0 Palermo
At the end of the first half, Palermo's Simplicio is sent off for bringing down David Suazo as he races alone towards goal. The visitors give up all the points when on-loan from Palermo striker Simone Pepe poaches a 90th minute winner. Palermo are even at the top on 27, with co-leaders Inter playing on Sunday.

Newell's Old Boys 1-2 Estudiantes de La Plata
Calderon and Platti score in 89th and 93rd respectively to keep the Apertura alive. Oscar Cardozo had earned and scored a penalty in the 31st that almost stood up. Estudiantes are now only 1 point behind Boca, who play on Sunday. On a negative note, the away-fans-ban left the stadium completely empty on one end, removing the boisterous celebrations that would have surely accompanied the two late goals.

Sunday 19 November 2006

Real Mallorca 1-4 Barcelona
Gudjohnsen gets two to keep Barca atop La Liga one ahead of Sevilla and three above Real Madrid. Iniesta and Ezquerro add one each to make the rout complete.

Inter Milan 1-0 Reggina
Hernan Crespo's 4th minute goal stands up as Inter go three up on Palermo.

Roma 7-0 Catania
Two for Panucci. Two for Perrotta. One for Mancini, Montella, and Totti. Roma still just four points back of Inter.

River Plate 2-0 Gimnasia La Plata
Gallardo and Higuain keep River's slim hopes alive.

Gimnasia Jujuy 1-2 Boca Juniors
Cardozo and Diaz both score brilliant goals as Boca stay four up on Estudiantes and seven up on River with only three to play.
