Atletico de Madrid travelled to Osasuna and needed a win to stay in touch in the Liga race. Their recent losses has pushed them down the classification table & a negative result would have put things uphill for the rest of the season.
The final result Osasuna 0 - Atletico de Madrid 3 with the visitors putting in a good performance that should lift their spirits & aspirations again. The goalscorers were Godin in the 35th min, Gameiro in the 36th min and Carrasco in the 89th min.
- Celta 3 ( Aspas, Bongonda, Cheika) - Granada 1 (Kravets)
- Villarreal 0 - Alaves 2 ( Gomez, Camarasa)
Bad match by FC Barcelona on a ground that has not been good for them in past seasons. Real Sociedad had a wonderful 1º half but failed to convert their opportunities, & this is not good against Barça. Although they went ahead through Willian Jose in the 52nd min, Barça managed to equalize in the 58th min through Messi.
The match then went into end to end mode...Real Sociedad continued to "sin" in missing their many goal opportunities. FC Barcelona allowed off the hook. Final result 1 - 1.
Next week FC Barcelona plays Real Madrid!
Las Palmas - Athletic Club Bilbao
