Real Madrid holds on to the first place in La Liga

Real Madrid ends league hoodoo vs Atlético - La Liga Roundup

February 3, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
Los Blancos prevailed at home against Atlético to keep the top spot in La Liga regardless of Barcelona's win on Sunday.

One more week has gone by in La Liga, and Real Madrid managed to maintain the top spot despite having to face one of their bitter rivals this weekend.

Los Blancos manage to oust Atlético Madrid thanks to Karim Benzema, who finally found the back of the net against Los Colchoneros when playing at the Bernabeu. Added to that, this win ended a seven-year hoodoo for Los Merengues when facing their neighbors at home.

Speaking of their bitter rivals, Lionel Messi failed to be decisive for Los Culés by scoring goals, but his contribution to Ansu Fati's brace was palpable. Now, "La Pulga" is the team's top scorer and passer, with eight assists to his name this season. Furthermore, Ansu Fati managed to earn a bit of history for himself.

Pichichi race

As we mentioned earlier, Lionel Messi is the league's top scorer despite not being able to find the back of the net on Sunday. More than that, "La Pulga" dominates two statistical categories with 16 games left.
