FC Barcelona will say goodbye to 2019 as a solo leader of LaLiga after his victory against Alavés and the subsequent Real Madrid draw against Athletic. Sevilla ends the day and the third year and follows the trail of the two great
The FC Barcelona will finish the 2019 like leader in solitary of LaLiga Santander by work and grace of a Real Madrid that did not happen of the tie to zero against the Athletic. The whites had to win to follow empatados against the Barça in the classification, that won this past Sunday to the Alavés 4-1, but did not have hit and left two vital points in the fight by the title. The Seville, by his part, won to the Mallorca and will finish the third year.
The culés did not fail to his appointment with the victory against the Alavés and reconciled with his fans after the bad flavour of mouth that left in the Classical. The 'MSG' shined and marked in front of the vitorianos, whereas Arturo Vidal also wetted annotating the 2-0. Griezmann Was the attendant to open the marker with a big goal with the right, whereas Leo Messi and Luis Suárez sentenced to the Basques in the seconds 45 minutes.
Precisely the Argentinian was the decisive man of the second part. But Pons recortó distances to the little of the resumption and the Alavñes tightened and was near of empatar to two. When worse was the Barça appeared the one of Rosary with a powerful far shot that cleared the crash. Shortly after, Suárez marked of penalti the definite 4-1.
The Madrid knew that it could not fail after the victory of the Barcelona, but did not have luck in front of an Athletic that held well backwards and went out of the stadium merengue with a point. The ones of Zidane had clear occasions to advance , but was missing them puntería in the last metres. Unai Simón took out several stops of merit and the sticks also aliaron with the 'lions'. Kroos In the first part and Nacho and Luka Jovic in the second, commanded the balloon to the wood and brushed the target.
In spite of his obstinacy and of the good party in general terms, in the football what more matters is the goal and this is precisely what comes him being missing to the Madrid this campaign. Against Valencia only a goal 'in extremis' of Benzema saved to the merengues, that did not mark against the Barça and neither have been able to do it in front of the Athletic. Only the French forward carries more than 10 so many this course and this is a serious problem for the madridistas of face to the 2020.
The Seville and the Athletic complete the Champions
The Seville also played this past Saturday in Mallorca and did not fail in his fight for following the trail of the two big of LaLiga. The sevillistas won with goals of Diego Carlos and of Banega, that transformed a penalti distinguished thanks to the VAR. With this triumph, the ones of Julen Lopetegui follow third and plant already with 34 points.
This Sunday, Real Sociedad and Athletic of Madrid did not fail in his visits to Osasuna and Betis, respectively. The Basques won 3-4 with a big Martin Odegaard and the rojiblancos 1-2 with a goal of Correa and another of Morata. The 'txuri-urdin' sack this 2019 in places of Europe League, with 31 points, whereas the colchoneros are fourth, with 32.
