Two of the big summer tournaments took place this weekend, with some of the top Spanish clubs competing. Deportivo's annual Teresa Herrera trophy was the first to kick off, with the participation of Atlético Madrid plus two of Latin America's top sides, Cruz Azul from Mexico and Nacional Montevideo from Uruguay. Depor had no trouble dispatching Nacional 4-0 in the first semi-final, but Atlético have still not got into their rhythm, and were beaten 1-0 by the Mexican side in the other. They recovered though to beat Nacional 2-1 in the consolation match, thanks to a second half winner from Fernando Torres. Depor eventually won the final 1-0 against Cruz Azul, but it took a Makaay winner in the last minute of extra time to do so after good work by Djalminha and Romero.
Mallorca surprised league champions Valencia in the final of the Ramón Carranza trophy, winning the final 3-2 in the penalty shoot out after the match finished without goals. Valencia's Cañizares saved two of the penalties, but Mallorca's Leo Franco did better saving four. Mallorca had beaten hosts Cádiz 4-1 in the opening game, and Valencia had beaten Víctor Fernández's Betis 2-1 in the other semi-final. Betis came from behind to beat Cádiz 2-1 in the third place play-off. (11.08.02)
