La Liga: Another One Bites The Dust

Notice who is missing from the above quarterfinals in the Copa del Rey?

Already proclaimed La Liga champs Real Madrid were knocked out today by lowly Mallorca with a 1-0 loss at the Bernabeu.

Apparently 25 points separating the first place madridistas from the 13th place barralets. That didn’t stop an Ibagaza goal in the 83rd minute from spoiling the treble and a supposed 900,000 Euro bonus from Vincente Calderón from bringing home the Copa del Rey, Champions League and La Liga titles this season.

To say Mallorca ‘parked the bus’ today is a slight understatement, as a super-ultra-almost sickening-defensive Mallorca took to the field against a depleted Real Madrid squad, starting countrymen Jerzy Dudek in goal. Madrid dominated the game as Mallorca only were playing to not concede.

The Man of the Match was Mallorca keeper Moyá, who was absolutly fabulous in goal today. What a game he had.

The quarterfinals are set to begin on the 23rd of January and finish up on the 30th.

The rest of today’s results are:

0 – 0 ATLÉTICO – VALLADOLID 1 – 1
2 – 1 MALLORCA – R. MADRID 1 – 0
3 – 0 GETAFE – LEVANTE 1 – 0
1 – 0 RECREATIVO – VILLARREAL 0 – 2
1 – 1 ATHLETIC – ESPANYOL 1 – 1
1 – 1 SEVILLA – BARCELONA 0 – 0
1 – 1 ZARAGOZA – RACING 2 – 4
1 – 2 BETIS – VALENCIA 1 – 2
