The Merengues defeated Eibar 2-0 to rise to the sub-leadership in the absence of the Atlético de Madrid and Barcelona matches
The fight for LaLiga still on fire. The victory of Real Madrid before him Eibar by 2-0, again took the meringues to second place in the competition and left Zinedine Zidane’s pupils just one victory away from equaling the Atlético de Madrid at the top, although, of course, the ‘Mattresses’ play this round.
With goals from Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema, the whites reached the 63 units after 29 days and they also went to Barcelona, which, for the moment and yet to play this weekend, have 62 points.
The Madrid played first this weekend due to his engagement in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday against Liverpool. Now, the physical issue may be a factor towards the end of the Spanish tournament.
In this way, Zidane will have to handle his pieces well so as not to give up an inch in LaLiga, but so that their starting players arrive with good rhythm to the game in Europe, since they are the only Spanish team that remains alive in the maximum club tournament in the world.
On the other hand, and back to what happens in Spain, the Athletic will visit Seville this Sunday. If he wins, he will be able to reach 69 units and thus get away from the meringues and the Catalans. The duel against the Sevilla players does not seem easy and it will be one of the most complicated they have facing the closing of the tournament.
Meanwhile, the Barcelona will collide with Valladolid on Monday and if they win, they will go to Real and will take over the second place. It would reach 65 units and it would depend on the result of the Colchoneros to know how many points it would get from Diego Simeone’s box.
As if that weren’t enough, the following weekend comes the Classic between Real Madrid and Barcelona, a match where the loser could say goodbye to the fight for LaLiga and what would I give to the Athletic greater tranquility to be able to handle the top.
