La Liga Roundup after Matchday 21

New milestone for Real Madrid as Los Blancos take the top spot - La Liga Roundup

January 27, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
Zidane's men are now three points ahead of Barcelona after this weekend's results.

Real Madrid finally took advantge of one of Barcelona's mishaps this season and toppled Los Culés from the top spot in the league. Los Blancos are alone at the top for the moment, with 17 games left to be played and a crucial tie between these teams.

Barcelona's loss against Valencia opened the door for Los Blancos, who struggled to beat Real Valladolid but ended up nabbing three key points in the race to win La Liga.

Elsewhere, Sevilla and Getafe leapfrogged Atlético in the hunt for a top-four finish. Los Colchoneros dropped two points against Leganés, while Los Hispalenses and Los Azulones defeated Granada and Real Betis, respectively.

The battle to avoid relegation got even closer, as Celta's draw left them one point away from Mallorca. Leganés and Espanyol also added points, which means that one win could see them leave the red zone for now.

Speaking about Barcelona's performance, some might feel that Lionel Messi had a massive hand in the team's fate. The Argentine was not as accurate as expected, and being the only Barca player to take more than one shot on goal speaks volumes of that. Unfortunately for him, he equaled a woeful record in his prestigious career with his display at Mestalla.

As for Real Madrid, things could not be sweeter for Zidane and Co. after this weekend. Los Blancos are the best team in La Liga, and their defensive display this season has seen them reach a new record not only in Spain, but also in the top five European leagues.
