The race for the La Liga title is still firmly on as the league table started to take some shape following Matchday 14 across Spain.
Indeed, the 10 fixtures that took place this past weekend were spread out over the course of 4 days, as a match was played on Friday and Monday, whilst the remaining eight were spread out across Saturday and Sunday. This would have been wonderful for fans and sports bettors who use 1xbet NZ, as they would have been able to keep right across the action as it all unfolded.
For those that missed out on what happened, here is a recap of everything that La Liga provided over the weekend:
Friday’s game saw Levante host Athletic Club, however those that would have been looking for goals will have been left disappointed as the clash ended up as a 0-0 draw.
Saturday’s action featured four games that provided a total of eight goals, thus making it slightly more enjoyable viewing for many who like to see the net ripple.
Celta de Vigo and Villarreal held each other to a 1-1 draw, whilst Sevilla and Alaves also held each other to a point apiece, although this game did see two further goals as it ended 2-2. Sevilla, though, will have been disappointed that they could not acquire all three as they continue their push towards the top of the table.
Atletico Madrid managed to record a 1-0 victory over Osasuna, whilst Xavi’s first game in charge of Barcelona in their derby against Espanyol, however he started life back at the Nou Camp as a manager unscathed as they won 1-0, as well.
Sunday provided fans with another four games, with a total of 12 goals being scored, despite one game ending goalless.
Getafe’s 4-0 win over Cadiz accounted for a third of the goals, whilst Real Madrid’s 4-1 win at Granada saw another five be added to the La Liga total for the weekend. Indeed, the win meant Carlo Ancelotti’s side would assume the top spot in the table, especially as Real Sociedad were held to the goalless draw against Valencia.
The other result on Sunday saw Elche be beaten 3-0 by Real Betis, which saw manager Fran Escriba be handed his marching orders after a disappointing start to the campaign.
Monday’s game – and the final of the 10 to be played over this weekend – saw Rayo Vallecano overcome Real Mallorca with a 3-1 result, thus helping to put them in contention for a European spot at this early stage of the campaign.
