Real Valladolid 1 - 0 Real Madrid

Coaches do not last long at Real Madrid, and Bernd Schuster could be heading for the exit door after the Spanish champions fell to a 1-0 defeat at Real Valladolid today. The same Valladolid had been beaten 6-0 by Barcelona last weekend, and before the game sections of the media predicted this would be the German's last game in the dugout if Real lost.

That is just what happened, with Uruguayan forward Nestor Cannobbio striking a 48th-minute winner with an unstoppable left-footed drive. With two recent UEFA Champions League losses to Juventus, and the midweek Spanish Cup elimination by minnows Real Union, Schuster had been under extreme pressure, and the Valladolid loss could be the final nail in his coffin.

Schuster won the league title in his debut season, but it is now up to the Real board to see if they want to extend his 16-month spell at the Santiago Bernabeu. Real have now won just once in their last six matches in all competitions and remain fourth in La Liga, two points behind leaders Barcelona, who have a game in hand.

Valencia 2 - 3 Sporting Gijon

It was a great day for the Catalans, with Valencia falling to a surprise 3-2 defeat at home to Sporting Gijon. Los Che could have gone top with victory, but goals from Luis Moran and David Barral gave them an uphill task.

David Villa scored his 11th goal of the season from the penalty spot to get Valencia back in the game, but Diego Castro made it 3-1 in the 83rd minute before Juan Mata added a consolation for the hosts. "We are conceding too many goals at home and this is something we have to cut out," lamented Villa.

Unai Emery's Valencia stay third, above Real Madrid on goal difference, but Villarreal, a point ahead in second, now have a great opportunity to pull away from the duo when they travel to Malaga tomorrow. Meantime, Barcelona will visit Recreativo Huelva. FIFA
