La Liga Matchday 11 Roundup + Highlights

Here what happened in La Liga Matchday 11, Real Madrid preserves their two-point lead at the pinnacle of the La Liga table after securing an emphatic 2-0 win over newly-promoted Leganes. Ronaldo has been off his game recently and his poor run of form continued as Gareth Bale stole the show with a magnificent brace.

Alvaro Morata was also on target for Los Blancos in the 76th minute as he tries to force his way into Zidane’s first team lineup. Isco played a significant role in the win as he assisted Bale’s first strike and also put in a strong showing.

Barcelona won at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in a tie that looked to be going Sevilla’s way for the most of the game. Vitolo gave Sevilla the early lead before Lionel Messi bagged Barca’s equaliser right at the brink of half time.

Luis Suarez scored the winner in the 61st minute and thereon after; Barcelona adopted a patient approach to the game.

Villarreal continued their impressive home form as they won against Real Betis in what turned out to be a routine victory. Manu Trigueros opened the scoring in the 21st minute before Roberto Soriano scored the Yellow Submarine’s second of the game.

Goals from Facundo Roncagila and John Guidetti saw Celta Vigo secure a 2-1 home win over Valencia with Dani Parejo the away side’s lone goal while Athletic Bilbao was held to a drab goalless draw by Espanyol.

Elsewhere, the weekend’s shock result came as Atletico Madrid were beaten 2-0 by Real Sociedad with both goals coming via spot-kicks taken by Willian Jose and Carlos Vela.

Atleti had good goalscoring opportunities but failed to convert any of them thus leaving them behind Real Madrid and Barcelona at the top of the table.

Johnathan Viera’s last gasp penalty proved to be the winner as Las Palmas secured a 1-0 victory over Eibar in what turned out to be a tightly contested affair while a penalty gave Alaves the three points as Christian Santos scored the winner against strugglers Osasuna.

Deportivo were held to a 1-1 draw by Granada with David Lomban scoring the equaliser for the home side following Florin Andone’s first half strike.

Malaga secured an emphatic 3-2 win against Sporting Gijon after falling behind twice in the game. Michael Santos played the part of super-sub as he scored the late winner after Gijon were reduced to ten men.

Borja Viguera opened the scoring for Gijon before Pablo Fornals pulled one back for Malaga right on the brink of half-time.

Duje Cop restored Gijon’s lead in the second half, but a strike from Sandro Ramirez made it 2-2 before Santos came on to score the winner for Malaga.
