The gameweek 22 of this season's LaLiga campaign continued yesterday with some interesting fixtures to entertain us with. Let's go straight to some of the things that happened in the matches played in the Spanish LaLiga yesterday and how the LaLiga table currently looks like.
Real Sociedad vs Cadiz (FT Score: 4-1)
Real Sociedad are back in business in the LaLiga this season after securing their first win this year against Cadiz. The Whites and Blues have been far from their best as they failed to win a single game in their last 5 matches. Sociedad's 4-1 win against Cadiz yesterday will likely give them the confidence they need to turn their season around and probably get back into the top 4.
Athletic Bilbao vs Valencia (FT Score: 1-1)
The chronicles of Valencia in the LaLiga this season is nothing to write home about. They suddenly turned from being one of the top clubs in the Spanish top-flight league into a relegation-threatened team. However, they are doing whatever they can to distance themselves from the relegation zone, and their 1-1 away draw against Bilbao yesterday shows they are improving. Valencia's next opponent in the LaLiga is Real Madrid and they will need to come up with something special if they want to get an away win against Madrid.
Osasuna vs Eibar (FT Score: 2-1)
Osasuna shoots themselves out of the relegation zone after leaving it late to defeat Eibar at the Estadio El Sadar yesterday. A late goal from Ante Budimir turned to a winning goal for the home team and it also saw the home team climb up to the 15th position on the LaLiga table. Consistency is all Osasuna needs now if they want to stay in the Spanish LaLiga next season.
Real Betis vs Barcelona (FT Score: 2-3)
Barcelona had a blissful night at the Estadio Benito Villamarin as they staged a comeback to get a 3-2 win against Real Betis. The emphatic comeback was inspired by Lionel Messi as he came off the bench to score his fastest goal as a substitute in LaLiga history (136 seconds). Trincao was also instrumental in Barcelona's comeback yesterday as he scored the winning goal in the 87th minute. Barcelona's win against Real Betis yesterday is also their 6th successive away wins in the LaLiga this season and with the way they are playing, they are starting to look more like title contenders.
The Current Look of The LaLiga Table
After Barcelona won Real Betis yesterday, they leveled up with Real Madrid in terms of points. At the same time, Barcelona climbed up to the 2nd position on the LaLiga table and are currently leading Real Madrid with a goal difference. Atletico Madrid are still 7 points clear on the LaLiga table with 2 outstanding games to play. Can Barcelona and Real Madrid catch up with them? Let's wait and see!
Do you think Barcelona or Real Madrid can still beat Atletico Madrid to this season's LaLiga title?
