La Liga Roundup – Week 27

kb 45883 La Liga Roundup   Week 27

The Top 3 of La Liga remained intact but the race for 4th place and the final Champions League spot got a bit tighter. 

Villarreal gave up a 2-0 lead at the Vicente Calderon to Atlético Madrid and lost 3-2 with Antonio Lopez scoring the game winner in the 83rd minute.  The win vaulted Los Colchoneros into 5th place just 2 points behind Villarreal and ahead of Malaga on goal differential.

Malaga started the make or break stretch of their season with a 2-2  home draw vs. Sevilla.  Malaga had a 2-0 lead at halftime but could not seal the 3 points and fell victim to the goal scoring talents of Frederic Kanoute & Luis Fabiano in the 2nd half. Malaga’s murderous stretch continues next week with a trip to the Camp Nou and 1st place, Barcelona.

The other team battling for that last Champions League spot is Deportivo La Coruna.  El Depor lost a tough 3-2 contest to Sporting Gijon on the road.  Sporting was one team that was able to hold on to a 2-0 lead and win. The loss put Deportivo in 7th place and out of a Europa League spot.  With 11 weeks of football left a lot can change especially when only 5 points separates 4th place from 8th place.
