Malaga vs Real Madrid 1-2 Highlights & Goals 2018

Malaga vs Real Madrid 1-2 Highlights & Goals 2018 By FootballMinds Malaga 1 Real Madrid 2: Isco downs struggling former side Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid moved into third in LaLiga with a 2-1 win at Malaga, Isco recording a goal and an assist against his old club. Isco's first LaLiga free-kick and a Casemiro tap-in earned Champions League semi-finalists Real Madrid a 2-1 win at Malaga on Sunday, nudging the Spaniard's former side closer towards relegation. Zinedine Zidane left stars including Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale out of his squad after Madrid survived a dramatic fightback by Juventus in midweek, with Marcelo and Toni Kroos named on the bench. But despite the changes made by the Frenchman, Madrid eased to a fifth consecutive away victory in all competitions thanks to a sublime showing from the increasingly influential Isco. A fine free-kick from the playmaker that curled away from Roberto Jimenez was the 25th set-piece goal scored by Madrid, more than any LaLiga club this season, giving Zidane's men a first-half lead. Isco then teed up Casemiro to slot home the decisive second after the break for the visitors, who won the title on their visit to La Rosaleda last season, Madrid moving above Valencia into third place in the table despite Diego Rolan's 93rd-minute consolation. Malaga had opportunities to rescue an unlikely draw before Casemiro's goal, Manuel Iturra guilty of wasting a fine one-on-one chance, but Madrid closed out victory to leave Jose Gonzalez's men - 14 points adrift of safety with six games to go - on the brink of dropping out of the top flight.

MAL vs RMA - Highlights & Goals - April 2018

English Commentary By FootballMinds Malaga are in dire need of a result this evening to boost their slim survival chances. The club are rock bottom of the Primera Division after collecting just 17 points from their 31 matches. Brief hope was kindled in their last home outing against Villarreal, claiming a narrow 1-0 win, while they battled in vain in a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Deportivo La Coruna last week. Jose Gonzalez knows that his men will have to be flawless against Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo is rested entirely for the fixture following his exploits in the Champions League. Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Raphael Varane are also pulled from the team. Ramos returns from suspension to start alongside Vallejo, while Hernandez replaces Marcelo. Kovacic comes into the middle of the park, while Asensio and Vazquez start from the off this evening. Real Madrid were in danger of being eliminated from the Champions League during the week. The reigning champions surrendered their three-goal lead to Juventus, only to be bailed out by a controversial last-minute penalty that was converted by Cristiano Ronaldo. With their title hopes gone, Zinedine Zidane and his men will likely pour the attention on continent ahead of their semi-final clash against Bayern Munich. Malaga have made three changes from their defeat to Deportivo last time out. Ricca, Gonzalez and Ideye come into the fold, with the home side expected to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Real Madrid did see a four-game winning run come to an end last week in their draw against Atletico Madrid. They were not firing on all cylinders against their bitter rivals and given their performance in the Champions League, the Frenchman will want to see an improvement from his side. #HalaMadrid #RealMadrid #MalagaRealMadrid

Southampton vs Chelsea 2-3 - Highlights & Goals - 2018

Southampton vs Chelsea 2-3 - Highlights & Goals - 2018 By FootballMinds English Commentary Southampton 2 Chelsea 3: Two-goal substitute Giroud inspires turnaround Chelsea snatched victory from the jaws of defeat at Southampton, as Olivier Giroud scored a brace to inspire a 3-2 win. Olivier Giroud came off the bench to inspire a stunning Chelsea turnaround, scoring his first Premier League goals for the club as they fought back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Southampton. Chelsea looked destined to suffer a sixth defeat from nine league outings when Jan Bednarek put Saints 2-0 up after an hour, but Antonio Conte's decision to throw Giroud on from the bench proved a masterstroke, the visitors scoring three times in eight minutes. Despite appearing to be in the ascendancy early on, Chelsea's lack of craft meant Southampton were comfortable, and that encouragement ultimately led to the home side breaking the deadlock. Ryan Bertrand did well down the left before setting up Dusan Tadic for a straightforward fourth goal of the season. Chelsea were not much better immediately after the restart and, after failing to heed a warning courtesy of Shane Long, the Saints' lead was doubled thanks to a fine finish from Bednarek, who was making his first start for the club. It was only after Giroud's introduction in the 61st minute that Chelsea took charge, as the France international scored twice either side of an emphatic Eden Hazard finish to wrap up an unlikely victory and leave Southampton languishing in the bottom three. Chelsea's early control was hindered by a lack of imagination in the final third, the visitors frequently hooking the ball into the box in the hope Alvaro Morata could make something out of it. He did eventually threaten just before the half-hour mark, heading over from close range, but at that stage Chelsea had already been trailing for six minutes. Former Chelsea defender Bertrand was the inspiration behind Southampton's breakthrough, charging up the left flank and outstripping Cesar Azpilicueta before teeing up Tadic for an easy finish. Chelsea avoided further damage seven minutes before the break – James Ward-Prowse's long-range effort forcing Thibaut Courtois into action. Marcos Alonso was then lucky to escape a red card on the stroke of half-time for catching Long on the calf with a studs-first challenge. Southampton went agonisingly close to a second just after the restart – Long catching Chelsea on the break and seeing his effort tipped over by a desperate Courtois. But the Belgium goalkeeper was helpless in the 60th minute. Ward-Prowse's deep free-kick was played towards the back post and Bednarek converted the delivery with a cushioned volley into the bottom-right corner. Conte responded by introducing Giroud for Morata and the Frenchman quickly had an impact, heading Alonso's cross in from just inside the area. Chelsea then equalised through Hazard with 15 minutes to go, as the Belgian smashed in from close range after Willian found him with a cut-back. And Giroud completed the remarkable turnaround soon after, drilling into the bottom-right corner after Hazard's cross was not cleared, dealing a cruel blow to Saints' survival chances as they remain three points adrift of safety.

FCB vs VAL - Highlights & Goals - April 2018

English Commentary By FootballMinds Barcelona are a goal to the good at the break but it has been anything but a dominant performance from the league leaders. Valencia have caused plenty of problems themselves and could easily have been two or three goals up were it not for the fine form of ter Stegen. The away side have had the better chances throughout but Barca are ahead in the only stat that matters. Valencia make two changes to the side that beat Espanyol 1-0 last weekend. Simone Zaza drops to the bench in favour of Santi Mina, who will partner Rodrigo Moreno in a two man attack. Ruben Vezo replaces Martin Montoya at right-back in the other change. Barcelona make two changes to the side that lost 3-0 to Roma during the week. Ivan Rakitic is replaced in midfield by Paulinho as expected, while Philippe Coutinho replaces Nelson Semedo. #BarçaValencia #FCBarcelonaValencia
