Barcelona and Real Madrid maintain La Liga heat by beating Osasuna and Bilbao respectively

March 31, 2012 By Isaac Asante
A 5-1 win for Real Madrid over Osasuna away to the Estadio Reyno de Navarra, followed by a 2-0 triumph for Barcelona over Bilbao, ensured that the action stayed at its best in La Liga.
Few weeks back, it looked like Real Madrid were going to finish their Liga campaign in style, as they could boast of a stunning 10-point lead at the top of the standings. Somehow though, traces of errors on behalf of Los Blancos - accompanied by relentless efforts from Barca - have supressed the gap to 6 points.

The increasing pressure that Barcelona have been firing at their arch-rivals evidently gives much reasons for any football fan to give his attention to the league that currently contains the world’s best players. This is not an opinion, but rather a justifiable fact, as Barcelona dominated the 2011 FIFA Ballon d’Or nominations.

On Saturday, Real Madrid continued their impressive run with an imposing 5-1 win over Osasuna, made possible by doubles from Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain. This now means that Real have reached their 100th goal in La Liga this season, and as a result, they are well on course to beat their own record of 107 goals obtained in the 1989-90 season.

Barcelona did not manage to obtain a comparable result on the same evening, but they still clinched 3 valuable points through an opener from Andres Iniesta and a penalty goal from Lionel Messi. Barca visibly had the advantage beforehand, facing an Athletic Club side that had faced Schalke only on Thursday.

But despite everything, and incredible level of efforts was required from Los Cules so as to ensure that they remained fired up for El Clasico at the end of April.

Cristiano Ronaldo presently leads the goalscoring chart in La Liga with 37% of his team’s goals, while Lionel Messi comes second with 36 goals, which is equal to 43% of his side’s total.
