Numancia 0 – Real Madrid 2 (La Liga, January 31, 2009) After a goalless first half, Raul opened the scoring for Real at Numancia after Robben’s slalom run had opened up the hosts defence. And Arjen Robben then scored a brilliant second of his own, weaving past several defenders before firing low into the bottom corner.
Athletic Bilbao 3 – Malaga 2 (La Liga, January 31, 2009) Albert Luque was in the right place to steer home the opener for Malaga away at Athletic Bilbao. Francisco Yeste brought Bilbao level with a fine strike from outside the box. Lolo’s header restored the visitors’ lead in the second half but back came the hosts, Fernando Llorente equalising with a beauty in the top corner. And Bilbao snatched victory at the death thanks to Markel Susaeta Laskurain’s 86th minute winner.
