La Liga round-up: Real Madrid miss golden opportunity to go top of the table after Barca-Atleti draw

May 10, 2021 By Ali M.
The Blaugrana played out a goalless draw in their Camp Nou clash with the league leaders, but fellow title challengers Los Blancos were also held to a stalemate.

The recent round in La Liga has posed more questions than answers as the Spanish top-flight edges closer to its season finale. Barcelona took on Atletico Madrid in the standout game this weekend, with both sides eyeing a win in order to take the advantage in the title race. Unfortunately, this tie ended in a 0-0 draw. Real Madrid, who hosted Sevilla the day later, looked to capitalize on that stalemate but were held to a 2-2 draw themselves. Elsewhere, Villarreal suffered a slip-up in the race to qualify for the Europa League, losing 4-2 to Celta Vigo just days after securing their ticket to this season's UEL final. Here's everything you need to know about the recent round of fixtures.

La Liga – top headlines 

  • Gerard Moreno made history despite the 4-2 loss to Celta Vigo as he became Villarreal's joint all-time top scorer, equaling the record of Rossi and Forlan (54 goals).

  • Barcelona vs Atletico ended goalless but Simeone's men had six shots on target in the first half, a feat no team has managed against the Blaugrana in the opening 45 minutes.

  • Ivan Rakitic came away from the 2-2 draw vs Real Madrid with a goal and an assist, becoming the first player to pull off this feat against Los Blancos in La Liga this season.

Top upcoming matches to watch in La Liga

Levante vs Barcelona: Only three games are left, meaning every single match is like a final for Barcelona. They take on mid-table Levante on Tuesday but given that Atletico and Real Madrid have the advantage over the Catalan giants, they must win every fixture and pray for the Madrid giants to slip up.

Atlético Madrid vs Real Sociedad: Simeone's men are in for a difficult test this midweek as they take on fifth-placed Real Sociedad. Atletico simply need to win their remaining three games to secure the crown but a home clash with La Real won't be easy. Don't miss this fixture.

Granada vs Real Madrid: Los Blancos missed a golden opportunity to steal the top spot away from Atletico in the 2-2 draw with Sevilla, a result which was mainly down to their injury crisis. Can Zidane's men bounce back on Thursday? The Merengues take on Granada, a team that registered a 2-1 victory at Camp Nou not too long ago, meaning this might not be a straightforward ride.
