Barcelona and Real Madrid beaten in La Liga
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 01 - 05 - 2011

MADRID: Barcelona missed a chance to virtually wrap up a third straight La Liga title when it surrendered the lead and lost 2-1 at Real Sociedad Saturday.
Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho had rested key players including Cristiano Ronaldo in the earlier kickoff and saw his side beaten 3-2 at home by relegation-threatened Real Zaragoza.
Leader Barca was looking in good shape for an 11-point lead over second-placed Real Madrid after Thiago Alcantara opened the scoring in the 29th minute in San Sebastian.
However, Diego Ifran pounced on a loose ball to equalize for mid-table Sociedad with just under 20 minutes remaining and Xabi Prieto netted from the spot in the 82nd minute after substitute Javier Mascherano conceded a penalty.

Dortmund wins 7th Bundesliga
Borussia Dortmund won its seventh Bundesliga title after beating Nuremberg 2-0 and second-place Bayer Leverkusen lost 2-0 at Cologne Saturday.
First-half goals from Lucas Barrios and Robert Lewandowksi took Dortmund eight points clear of Leverkusen with two rounds left. Milivoje Novakovic scored against the run of play for Cologne in the 67th minute and again in the 82nd.
Marco Reus scored in a 1-0 win for Borussia Moenchengladbach at Hannover, meaning Bayern Munich can reclaim third place by beating Schalke in the late game.
Elsewhere, Mainz beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0, Stuttgart won 2-1 at Hoffenheim, and Freiburg won 2-0 at Hamburger SV.
Inter delays Milan's title bid
Giampaolo Pazzini scored twice in injury time as Inter Milan rallied to beat Cesena 2-1 Saturday and delay city rival AC Milan in its bid for the Serie A title.
Igor Budan had put Cesena in front in the 56th minute before Pazzini scored in the first and fifth minutes of added time.
With just three matches remaining after this weekend, Milan holds a five
