Vibrant thirty-second day of LaLiga Santander both in the race for the title and in the battle for permanence.
Vezo, after a slip, launched Elche’s lethal counterattack. Tete first found Boyé and the Argentine crossed meters and took out the whip to cross before Aitor. Almost without doing anything, Elche led on the scoreboard.
Draw in Zorrilla that leaves the people of Cadiz more satisfied, that already add 37 points, while leaving the Blanquivioletas very touched, who with 29 begin to see their permanence black. The ball reached Alcaraz in the front, who filtered a good pass to Weissman, who did the same to leave only Plano in front of the rival goal and before him he surpassed him scoring 1-0. For its part, Cádiz was contracted almost accidentally with the tie. He threw four corners almost in a row and in the last Cala found the ball in the small area and clinched the tie.
The Alaves he continues out of the relegation places and Calleja clings to his English average (he wins at home and draws away) to stay in First; while Valencia still does not detach from the cliff and Grace crying out for his seasonal ordeal to end. A captain’s goal in 88‘avoids the third consecutive victory for Alavés de Calleja, who took the lead in 84’ with a goal from Guidetti.
Betis-Real Madrid (0-0)
Real Madrid could not get past the draw against Betis at the Alfredo Di Stéfano stadium. Madrid tried without much conviction, surely thinking more about Tuesday’s semifinals against Chelsea than about the fight for LaLiga. Casemiro even advanced the position somewhat in the second half, Zidane turned to Vinicius and Hazard, but the goal did not come.
Huesca 0 – Getafe 2
Getafe recovered from the defeat against Barcelona with a victory against Huesca in trouble. A double from Ünal made the difference in the match. The Madrid team is fifteenth with 34 points, while the Huesca team is second to last with 27.
Villarreal 1 – Barcelona 2
Barcelona added another golden triumph in the LaLiga race in a very close duel with Villarreal. Chukwueze put the yellow team ahead in a great individual action to overcome Ter Stegen in the hand in hand. The Barça team reacted immediately through Griezmann, who signed one of the goals of the day with Vaseline. The French then took advantage of a defensive error and sentenced the meeting with the second of his private account. Barça is third with 71 points, the same as Real Madrid but still with one game less. Villarreal occupies the seventh place with 49 points.
Seville 2 – Granada 1
Celta 2 – Osasuna 1
Atlético de Madrid fell to Athletic de Bilbao in the new San Mamés and once again left vital points for the fight for LaLiga Santander. Athletic went ahead right at the start of the meeting thanks to an accurate header from Berenguer. The second part was entirely for Atlético, who turned upside down to turn the game around. The occasions followed one another, Simeone gave entrance to Joao Félix, Luis Suárez and Lemar and finally in a corner he found a prize. A combed finish from Savic relieved the leader. When the game was coming to an end, Íñigo Martínez appeared to certify the local victory in the 86th minute of the game with a tremendous header from a corner. Atlético remains at the top of the table with 73 points, two more than Real Madrid and Barcelona, although they still have one more game to play.
