La Liga - Real's woes benefit Barça and Atleti

La Liga Roundup - Barça and Atlético make the most out of Madrid slip-up

February 18, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Just when things seemed to be on a roll for Real Madrid, Girona gave them a reality check and helped Atlético get back to La Liga's second place.

This week's action in La Liga practically erased what happened seven days ago. Atlético is once again behind Barcelona in the tournament's standings after Real Madrid's shocking mishap, which killed all the joy Los Blancos were living in the past weeks.

To make matters worse for Solari's men, Barcelona managed to walk away from Camp Nou with three points, despite one more of Lionel Messi's missed PKs against Valladolid. Now, Los Blancos are nine points behind the league leaders, which hands them a serious blow to their title hopes.

Here's how things look like in La Liga after this weekend's games.

Once again, Lionel Messi's goalscoring prowess made headlines for Barcelona. The Argentine ace may have missed a penalty, but ended up scoring one more to give the Blaugrana side three more points in their quest to maintain the La Liga title.

Speaking about Real Madrid, Los Blancos suffered their second defeat against Girona in history, but what really stands out is how they have struggled to win games this season when Marcelo is on the pitch. Is his dip in form a sign of things to come?

Elsewhere, Valencia has also earned themselves a little piece of European history. Unfortunately, their feat is not enough to grant them a spot among the top four teams in La Liga. Only Rennes can match their tally this season.

Last, but not least, Antoine Griezmann keeps climbing up the ranks as one of Atlético's most prolific scorers in their history.

Lionel Messi's goal extended his lead at the top of the Spanish top flight's goalscoring charts. How many more goals will he score?
