AS IT HAPPENED IN LA LIGA LAST WEEKEND.

Posted on Posted in La Liga

Girona moved to one point within Villarreal on Saturday with a well earned 2-0 victory. It is now two successive victories for Girona and successive losses for Villarreal in La Liga.Meanwhile, Sevilla banished the ghost of that 5-2 home loss against Athletico Madrid last weekend to put up a commanding display against Athletic Bilbao with the game already settled just after the half-hour mark.

Separated by 11 places, a 1-1 result separated Deportivo and Eibar in a highly contested game. Red card to Maksym Koval didn’t stop the hosts from fighting as their battle for survival continues.

Two goals in seven second half minutes gave Leganes the victory against basement side – Malaga who have done little to suggest they will be in the top flight next season.

It might be coming late, but Ronaldo has hit top form at a crucial part of the season. He scored twice against Getafe on Saturday.

His goals will certainly not win him the La Liga title but his form could help Los Blancos to another Champions league triumph. Bale also found the net.

Forget his innocent looks, Leo Baptistao has the ability to hurt, as he proved on Sunday.

His 90th minute strike broke the hearts of Levante and gave Espanyol the point their late probing deserved.

Words can no longer describe Lionel Messi. The Argentinian scored his 600th career goal with an unstoppable free-kick against Atletico Madrid on Sunday.

It was his 539th for Barcelona.
This was Messi’s third free-kick goal in three La Liga games. No other player has managed that in the last 30 years, from Roberto Carlos to Cristiano Ronaldo.
Barcelona’s No 10 has five free-kick goals in 2018.

The clash of two inconsistent sides took place at Anoeta sports complex where Real Sociedad scored two quick-fire goals in the opening eleven minutes to put the match to bed.

Real Betis conceded their 52nd La Liga goal this season on Sunday. They have now leaked more goals than bottom team – Malaga. A situation which will certaintly make prospective opponents lick their lips in anticipation.
