Courtois keeps his door to zero and although Madrid missed Ramos and Carvajal in defense, they only suffered at the start of the game against the attacks of Alavés. 

Real Madrid beat Alavés (2-0) and takes another step towards the LaLiga Santander 2019-2020 title. It is the eighth consecutive victory for Zidane’s team after the league break and with 80 points, he once again has a 4 advantage in the lead over Barça, second, with only 3 days left.

The whites were forced to win after the victory of the Catalans against Espanyol, and they did not fail. They went ahead early, in the 11th minute, with another penalty, the third in a row after those who gave them the last two victories by the minimum against Getafe and Athletic. Frenchman Benzema took over from Ramos, suspended, and scored 1-0. Just after the break, Asensio scored the second Real Madrid goal at will, after Benzema’s death pass. Once again, the goalkeeper Courtois stood out again, leaving his clean sheet for the fifth consecutive game, for a total of 18 this season.

On Wednesday, FC Barcelona defeated RCD Espanyol (1-0) with which they stood with 76 points and certified the relegation of the parrots to the Second Division. The best chance of the first half was Espanyol, in the 45th minute, but Ter Stegen and the stick prevented the 0-1. The clash was transformed just at the beginning of the second half with consecutive expulsions from local Ansu Fati, first, and visitor Pol Lozano, just after. Then Barça improved, achieving the winning goal in the 56th minute, the work of Luis Suárez.

Third is Atlético de Madrid after drawing in Balaídos with Celta (1-1) and has 63 points. The same as Sevilla, who came back in San Mamés to Athletic (1-2) but lost the goal average with the colchoneros, making it fourth. Both teams have the qualification for the next Champions League within their reach, since they have 6 points more than Villarreal who, although they won at Getafe and are still fifth, only have 9 points left to play.

Madrid’s accounts

"Is of complaint", the reaction after the umpteenth penalty favorable to Madrid

Madrid scores from a penalty again!

With 80 points from Madrid to 76 from Barça, the accounts are clear: the Whites will be mathematically champions if they get at least five more points between now and the end of the championship, since the maximum that Barça opts for is 85 points (In case of a tie, the particular ‘goal average’ has been won by Madrid). This means that with one victory and two draws, Madrid would be champion. Obviously, with two victories and one defeat, too. If Barça gave up some point in the next few days, the alirón could arrive earlier. In fact, if Barça did not win against Valladolid this weekend at the Nuevo Zorrilla, Real Madrid could be champion this coming Monday by beating Granada at home. If both Barça and Madrid win the next day, the next ‘match ball’ would arrive next Thursday the 16th. That day Barça faces Osasuna, while Zidane’s men will face Villarreal. In the event that Madrid left a point in the next two days and Barça won everything, the League would be decided on the last day (Sunday 19). The Leganés-Real Madrid and Alavés-Barça matches would end up deciding the championship.

Argentine goalkeeper Willy Caballero, 38, has renewed one more season with Chelsea, as reported by the London club on Wednesday. The goalkeeper showed himself "very happy" to continue being part of the ‘blue’ group, where he has been active since 2017.

Same protagonist, same result. Again Varane. The French central was the great culprit of Manchester City’s second goal that left Zidane’s men behind again on the scoreboard.

The worst night of Varane’s career: two gifts for Manchester City

In a long shot by Ederson, Varane failed when trying to finish, wanting to correct his mistake and assist Courtois, the Frenchman left the ball loose so that Gabriel Jesús, very attentive, took advantage of the error and surpassed the Belgian goal. It was 2-1 on the scoreboard and Varane was once again the negative protagonist of his team. It should be remembered that the first goal came in the same way, Gabriel Jesús snatched the ball from him and gave the goal to Sterling. This time the Brazilian scored.

If the game ends like this, Zidane will be clear about the culprit for his elimination from the Champions League. Two blunders from his center turned into a goal. That in the Champions is https://worldbets.top/en/1xbet/ paid dearly.

Athletic Club international forward Aritz Aduriz has announced that he is now retiring from active football, "the moment has come" after doctors have recommended "yesterday" that "go under the knife" to place you "a hip replacement". Spanish soccer is left without one of the most beloved players who was even news in the New York Times just a few days ago.

He had chosen his dream ending. Disputing the final of the Copa del Rey with the club of his life. Before the Royal Society. With the possibility of raising a title at his farewell. Football and life are sometimes too cruel. This was the full letter that he left on his social networks: 

"The moment has come. I have mentioned many times that football leaves you before you leave it. Yesterday the doctors recommended that I go through the operating room, better tomorrow than the day after, to place a prosthesis to replace my hip and try to face daily life as normally as possible. Unfortunately my body has said enough. I cannot help my colleagues as I would like and as they deserve. This is also the life of a professional athlete. Simple, very simple.

Unfortunately we are living in much more serious and painful situations; the pandemic that we are still suffering has left us irreparable damage and we must continue to fight it together. So don’t worry about me, this is just an anecdote. Let’s forget about the endings dreamed of, because we will have time to say goodbye. And yes, the time to say goodbye has come and this is the end of this journey for me, unforgettable and wonderful from beginning to end. Thank you very much"

Aritz Aduriz, who has written a letter on social media to announce his retirement, leaves football at the age of 39 as Athletic Club’s top scorer in the 21st century and the sixth in all its history, with 172 goals. Ahead of him are only Zarra (335), Bata (208), Dani (199), Gorostiza (196) and Iraragorri (179). 

The Frenchman Raphael Varane signed one of the worst matches in his professional career with two serious errors that caused the two goals of the victory of Manchester City (2-1, 4-2 on aggregate) and therefore wanted to “show his face” because he considers the defeat, which caused the elimination of Real Madrid in the knockout stages of the Champions League, as his own.

“I want to show my face because, for me, this defeat is mine. I have to assume it. I am sad for my teammates for the effort they have made and I have my responsibility in this defeat. We were good in the game, we had prepared the game well, but mistakes pay dearly at this level, “he commented on Movistar +.

“I have no explanations for these errors. This happens in soccer. It is a complicated night for me that I have to take on. No need to think about it anymore. We have given everything in the field and sometimes you can fail, today I have failed and I have to assume it.
