La Liga Table After Yesterday's Games As Real Madrid Dropped Crucial Points In The Title Race

Spain's La Liga was back in action yesterday, with teams playing 23 matchday matches. Let's see how all the games went yesterday.

* Espanyol 2-1 Mallorca

In yesterday's match, "Espanol" defeated Mallorca 2-1 and obtained three important points. The hosts started the match brightly and took the lead in the 22nd minute thanks to Braithwaite. After the hosts were denied, Muriqi equalized before the break. The visitors came back stronger in the second half and took the lead again thanks to Braithwaite.

The visitors tried to equalise, but Espanyol's defense was solid and the visitors were able to take all three points.

* Cadiz 1-0 Rayo Vallocano

Cádiz secured a much-needed win over Rayo Vallocano thanks to a strong performance. After a first half in which both teams had few scoring chances and many mistakes, Cádiz managed to break the deadlock under Guardiola in the 74th minute. The final minutes were crucial for their victory and played very well in defense to prevent Rayo from making an equalizer.

* Real Madrid 1-1 Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid tried to stay fit when they played a difficult match against Atletico Madrid yesterday. The first half did not go as expected, with neither team going for an early goal or risking a counterattack. Real Madrid had the best chance but couldn't beat Oblak. The match was even in the second half until Correa was shown a red card for a reckless tackle on Rüdiger. Despite going down to 10 men, Gimenez Griezmann took the lead with a header from a free-kick past Courtois, but yesterday 18-year-old Alvaro scored the opener to give Los Blancos a point.

* Valencia 1-0 Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad suffered a major blow when they lost 1-0 to Valencia yesterday. The visitors dominated the first half but a Zubeldia own goal left them behind at the break. Real began to recover in the second half but could not overcome Valencia's solid defence. The match ended in a 1-0 win for Valencia.
