This week, at Matchweek 21, we have experienced different very interesting matches, with several surprises that make us think about the future of the title.
We started with the victory of SD Huesca by 3 to 1 over Valladolid (local) and by a more than enough 2 to 0 of Sevilla to Eibar as a visitor thanks to a goal from Lucas Ocampos from a penalty and another from Joan Jordán.
In the third game we found the first surprise: Levante beat Real Madrid at the Bernabeu by a great 2 to 1 (it would be 3-1 if they had not annulled a goal). Militâo took a red card in the 9th minute, which left the Madrid team very touched. Levante looked strong, and did not stop trying to finally make a difference in the 78th minute thanks to Roger Martí.
Valencia beat Elche at home by one goal; Villarreal and Real Sociedad tied at 1, leaving both with fewer options to fight for the title; and Getafe drew at home against Alavés, which is struggling to get out of relegation.
Cádiz fought it to the end, it became one of the few teams that left Atlético de Madrid on the ropes, the result was a 2 to 4 in favor of Atleti. A great Álvaro Negredo led Cádiz to the end, but his goal could not be achieved. Also a great Luis Suárez who scored 2 goals.
We continue with a draw for Granada and Celta de Vigo and a 1-0 victory for Betis over Osasuna.
Finally, FC Barcelona beat the giant killer: Athletic Club de Bilbao. They won 2-1, thanks to Messi and Griezmann, who give them the strength to get closer to Atlético.
There are not many changes in the general classification, in Barcelona they tie on points with Madrid, with Atleti at a potential 13 points difference.
Behind Huesca struggles to get closer to permanence.
The next day begins on February 5, after the Copa del Rey matches.
