Spanish La Liga – Weekend Review

31 Mar , 2014  

La Liga

The top three in La Liga played on Saturday leaving Sunday as a day dominated by the relegation battle in Spain.

Barcelona picked up all three points at Espanyol in the derby thanks to a Lionel Messi penalty.

Atletico Madrid faced the toughest task with a trip to fourth-placed Athletic Bilbao.  Costa and Koke were the scorers as they battled for a 2-1 win after going behind to a clever Iker Muniain lobbed finish.

Real Madrid trounced Rayo Vallecano 5-0 with Gareth Bale bagging a brace for himself.  Real were bouncing back after two defeats on the trot against Barcelona and Sevilla.

Getafe had a great 3-1 win at Valencia which leaves them in sixteenth position.  Valldolid beat Almeria 1-0 in a real relegation ‘six-pointer’.  This lifted Valladolid over their opponents and out of the relegation zone on goal difference.
