The Lion King himself, Fernando Llorente is turning 26 today. Also celebrating this weekend are hotties Kike Sola, who turned 25 yesterday, and Mario Suárez, who will be 24 tomorrow. Happy birthday boys!

Valencia 2 (Aduriz, Vicente) – Athletic Bilbao 1 (Gabilondo). Valencia took the lead early, with Aritz Aduriz putting one past his former team. Bilbao didn’t put much of a fight in the first half, but they did look fantastic in their away kits. Although they stepped up somewhat in the second half, Vicente scored a second one for Los Che at the end of the match. Seconds later, Gabilondo managed a consolation for Los Leones at the opposite end.

Real Sociedad 1 (Forlín OG) – Espanyol 0. Poor little Juan Forlín scored an own goal when Jeffrey Sarpong’s free kick bounced off the post, then off the Espanyol defender. Rough luck, kiddo.

Zaragoza 2 (Sinama Pongolle 2) – Osasuna 2 (Obradovic OG, Diego Castro). The first goal was another own goal, this time by Zaragoza’s Ivan Obradovic. The home side was responsible for the next goal against them as well, when Jiri Jokosek earned a red card and a penalty shot. Diego Castro made the shot without any trouble, and Osasuna was up two. Florent Sinama Pongolle made up the deficit with a pair of goals shortly thereafter, but neither side could come up with a third to break the draw.

Fernando Llorente calendar shoot

Sorry I took so long to post this. It’s been a busy week! See Fernando Llorente get wet for the 2011 Biscay Firefighters Calendar (my translation is below).

“After a lot of playing hard to get, Fernando Llorente has arrived in Lezama for one purpose: to pose for the photo session for the Biscay Firefighters Calendar, a project in which other renowned athletes, such as [surfer] Eneko Acero  and [basketball player] Javi Salgado, are collaborating. Grinning from ear to ear and with a wet shirt, the Athletic forward delights us.”
